It was often tough but despite significant hardships, the new
gardeners persevered. Frosts decimated seedlings, heavy storms
ravaged greenhouses and rows of tender young vegetables
succumbed to driving rains.
No matter what life and nature threw at them, they kept at it:
rebuild, replant, repeat. They kept going because they knew they
were growing so much more than vegetables and fruits.
Along with the corn and potatoes, people were growing a new
appreciation for vegetables and fruits and a sense of pride and
accomplishment for what they had achieved.
Children delighted in pulling carrots from the
dirt and tasting fresh-from-the-garden
goodness for the first time.
