As we reach the peak of summer here in Charlottesville, Virginia, thunderstorms break up the heat and provide water to gardens across the city. Just look how beautiful this elementary school garden has become!
When I was little, my mother encouraged my siblings and I to help her work in our family garden. An avid gardener herself, I still remember the joy in learning simple lessons, such as the need to water our plants regularly—sometimes more than once on very hot days. I can’t tell you how excited we were when we saw our first pea plants sprout!
