Using a hoe...

....in my very own garden.

Mr. and I have teamed up with two other couples to harvest a
variety of veggies in a community garden.
Presently, the parsley, chives and rhubarb that we acquired from the previous plot owner are flourishing. With a combination of a few green thumbs and a few willing, able and encouraged thumbs we are seeing the fruits of our labor...




Additional "dirt" on gardening...
an adult gardener will burn approximately 325 calories per hour
spading the garden. Not to mention every time you water the lawn you
expend about 90 calories.

Do you have a garden?
