Granger Gardens

When we first moved into our home we had seven children. We planted a huge garden with several rows of corn, 200 tomato plants, beans, peas, onions, peppers, cucumbers, etc. We did that for several years, as did most of our neighbors. Now that all our children are married, we are using small raised bed garden plots. We planted cucumbers, peppers, tomatoes, carrots and squash. We love the taste of fresh picked produce and we love that many of those who live here in WVC have gardens, whether they be pots on the apartment balcony, or mixed in with flowers, or commercial ventures like Rushton farms, or a plot on the side of their homes. Such a great place to live! Such a great time of year!

Your Vote Matters!

Today’s news reported that only 15% of registered voters had cast their votes and turned them in for the municipal election. As I have personally called and visited with voters, I have been surprised to hear such things as, “I only have one race to vote for. It is not worth my time to vote,” or “This election is only for my city. What difference does it make to me who is elected?” 
YOUR VOTE MATTERS! NON PARTISAN city leaders have the greatest affect on your daily life. They provide police and fire protection, planning and zoning for your neighborhoods, local road repairs, parks and recreation, and garbage pick up. We are your neighbors who live in our city, shop our stores, eat in our restaurants, fight our traffic and bump along our state roads. We know what it means to have a beloved neighbor move away, a child struggle with friendships, and find joy learning to swim in our fitness center. 
You have your ballot and it must be postmarked by Monday the 12th or you may vote in person at West Valley City Hall on Tuesday the 13th.
