A local man said that with all of the heavy rain that we have had this year, coupled with his age, he thought he would not be able to grow vegetables in his garden this year. However, an unpredictable thing took place on his property.

Warner Taylor,78, grew an 8-pound cabbage in his backyard garden.

Taylor said he has numerous physical conditions that could have hindered him from planting and tending the garden, but his faith in God saw him through.

Taylor has endured a stroke, heart attack, eye and spine surgeries, and a severe hearing impairment.

&uot;Working in the garden is therapy for me and I love to share the crops that I grow with friends and relatives.

And when you give, it comes back to you,&uot; he said.

He resides on Whaleyville Boulevard with his wife, Iness, and they are members of Tabernacle Christian Church.
