Mother Nature has been very good to area gardens this year, including the Tigerton Community Gardens that provide fresh, healthy food.
The garden was the idea of Jon Gehrman in 2007. Unfortunately, he died before it got started, so Perry Bublitz took over.
“It was his passion,” Bublitz said.
The number of plots has increased every year, and eight families are participating this year. They are responsible for planting, weeding, watering and cleaning up.
The plots are 10-by-20-feet and 10-by-40 feet.
“No one has any idea how much food comes out of here,” Bublitz said. “There is plenty to share with the village and local churches.”
Rudy Lopez is the chairman of the garden committee. Other committee members are Bublitz, Fred Lang and Audrey Kessen.
“We have to have a committee because we apply for grants,” Bublitz said.
