Some folks have set up solar panels in their plots in the Payson Community Garden. The garden bustled with activity over the Memorial Day weekend as people rushed to plant their summer vegetables, hoping that the last frost of the year is now behind us.

Built on donated land, the garden still has a few plots left. For the cost of a plot, gardeners get water, soil, elk-proof fencing and lots of other perks.

Organizers last year donated thousands of pounds of food to food banks with the excess harvest from the garden. This year, the number of plots sold nearly doubled.
