Gardening 101

I’ve found life to be a lot like gardening. It takes some planning in having a garden. It also takes planning to accomplish things we want in life. It takes diligent efforts in preparing the seedbed prior to and during planting. It also takes diligent efforts in preparing oneself for a chosen occupation or career.

It also requires regularly watering and weeding the garden to have it produce to its potential. It also requires a person to constantly be prepared to take on a new day and a new challenge in ones job and life. We need to care for ourselves and those we care most about and to be considerate of those we work with.

The Sophomore Ag. Ed. II students tilled and planted a garden May on the north side of the high school. Some of the FFA students will be taking care of the garden during the summer. Here is a picture of part of that process.

I plan to stop by to see the garden when I get to New Salem this summer. Thanks to Mr. Shawn Feiring for providing these students with this experience. Also thanks to John Burck for providing his tiller.

If you have any questions on financial aid, career and other counseling issues, please contact me at New Salem High School at 843-7610. If something urgent comes up I can be reached at my residence at 222-3222.

Have an excellent Academic Day!
