Stories of John Nelson and Melissa Keziah Rollins Lee as told by Melvin Eugene Cox

My grandparents came to live with us while they worked in the Temple. I was in my younger years.

As I remember he, [John Nelson Lee], taught me how to hoe in the garden. Also how to plant in the light and the dark of the moon and what plants. Those that matured under the ground such as carrots, potatoes, etc. were to be planted in the dark of the moon. Those that matured above the
ground such as tomatoes, etc. were to be planted in the light of the moon.

I never followed this practice. I always maintained they should be planted in the ground. Of course in the right season.

I maintained that while grandfather lived there, our lot didn't know how to grow weeds.

Grandpa (John Nelson Lee) and Grandma (Malissa Keziah Rollins) Lee used to live with my parents, Warren and Mary Etta Lee Cox. Grandpa John Nelson Lee used to grow beautiful gardens. My grandfather, Melvin (Cox) said his Grandpa John N. Lee was very particular about his garden and if any of the children walked in there without permission, he would measure their tracks then the offender would get a scolding.
