  1. This too is an excellent event and a great idea. I have gardened literally all of my life. My grandmother taught me as a young child. I once had a garden of vegetables that was about a quarter of an acre in Iowa. We planted potatoes in the ground and also with straw and soil in tires. As they grew another tire was added. Now I suspect that nowadays the tire might not be appealing but I am sure other methods would work too. Knee High by the 4th of July where I come from. I made catsup that year. Took about 100 tomatoes for 6 quarts. The old-fashioned way. I smelled like a tomato for 3 days. Best Catsup ever! This is a great idea and a great learning experience. It’s fun too, I think. I might go look at these gardens at the ECC. Have Fun. Important life skills I believe.
