This friendly Hmong family from St. Paul has a 1.5 acre plot off Wescott Road and Lexington Road. The grandparents, granddaughter, grandson and grandson's girlfriend posed among their lemongrass and red pepper plants. (The daughter was too camera shy.) They also planted beans, watermelons, cucumbers, onions, long beans and pumpkins. The grandparents and their daughter left Laos in 1980 for Thailand. After 5 years there, they arrived in Eau Claire, Wisconsin in 1985 and later St. Paul, Minnesota, home to one of the largest Hmong populations in the US. Good luck for great crops!
