This is especially true for one gifted teenager from Volga who loves tooting her own horn…literally! She’s done so halfway across the country and for nearly half her life. She is Emily Duff, daughter of Pete and Karla Duff, and an incoming senior this fall at Starmont High School.

Whether you’re harvesting your 30th season of heirloom tomatoes or have never before planted a plot, there’s a place for you in Elkader’s Community Garden. Volunteers of all skill levels are needed to maintain the garden. In return, workers can help themselves to the harvest.
Located adjacent to St. Joseph’s Catholic Cemetery on the south edge of town, the Community Garden was established two years ago by members of St. Joe’s congregation. This year’s plot is similarly sized and as mid-summer approaches, it’s beginning to show the fruits of the volunteers’ labors: Squash plants are heavy with blooms, the potato patch has been neatly hilled and cabbages are beginning to burst out of their dense-leaf covers.

A few years ago when the economy was down and travel costs were up, the concept of “staycations” was launched to encourage close-to-home getaways. A side benefit of the concept was discovering or re-discovering “backyard gems.”
