Family works together ‘gathering the harvest’ | food

After a long summer and lots of hard work, the garden produce has proven it is worth it for the Nichols family.

Maren and Roger Nichols have been busy this summer with the almost half an acre of garden. This includes a pumpkin patch and sweet corn for a project of their children to sell and learn marketing skills. The children include Benson who is a sophomore at Sugar-Salem High School. He has been a big help with gardening, and when the time comes for eating, he likes steak with mashed potatoes and gravy. He is active in tennis, painting mini-figures, ping pong (he has organized a club at SSHS), reading, mountain biking, raising a lamb in 4-H and showing it at the county fair, computer programming and playing the violin.
