Gordon is one of the Auntie Karen Foundation's Jamaican Yams. Yusef and Yolanda are Whipper and Mya’s parents. Whipper is Gordon's best friend.
Whipper's parents fear that Gordon's weight and eating habits are putting him at risk for developing Diabetes. To help Gordon, they are planting a garden; giving Gordon access to fresh vegetables will help him eat healthier foods. Working in the garden will help Gordon get some needed exercise.
On Sunday April 10, 2011 Gordon's Gardner's Linda Wilson, Sarah Watson, Annette Lewis and Joan Mobley added three more bags of mushroom compost to our tomato beds and planted tomatoes. We planted 15 plants from Azeez Mustafa and the following additional Heirloom plants:
3 green Zebra 2 Cherokee purple 2 Black Krim 2 Rutgers 2 sun gold cherry
