OGDENSBURG, NY—-Have you noticed the array of colors that encompass the outside of the United Helpers Adult Home? This is the bountiful work of two friends and United Helpers Adult Home Residents, Irene Smith and Bea Hartmann. After careful planning this winter, the pair has been diligently tending to the five gardens located around the United Helpers Adult Home. The beds are a mixture of ornamental plants, herbs, and vegetable crops including corn, peppers, lettuce, radish, squash, rhubarb, carrots, tomatoes, onions, pole beans, snap peas, lemon basil, lavender, rosemary, sage, basil, dill, chives, fennel, gold leaf thyme, oregano, pansies, roses, and marigolds. The duo single-handily purchased and planted all the vegetables, herbs, and flowers located in the gardens, which is readily being enjoyed by residents, friends, family members, staff, and visitors alike.
