A Garden Under the Solar Panel

Gerry’s Mom was happy to be getting solar power for her home. She wasn’t very happy about it taking up so much of her garden space. Tron told Sunny and Ray about Gerry’s Mom’s garden. Sunny and Ray grinned “ She can still have her garden.” “But how?” Tron asked “to work the best the solar panels have to have the sunniest spot in the yard and that is right where the garden is.” Replied Tron. “Tron, Sunny and I see this all the time” Ray said. “Here are some of the plants that will grow under the solar panels. They are plants that will grow with some shade. Tell Gerry that his Mom can still have her garden. Just put the plants underneath the solar panels.”
