This large family tomato patch in the back yard of Dennis D. and Cathy Taylor at 1124 J St. NW in Miami is shared and tended by the entire Taylor clan, which besides Dennis and Cathy includes Dennis' parents Dennis and Bonnie Taylor; his son Cory and wife Shara and their three sons; and his daughter Christy and husband Morgan Hendrick and their two sons. The owl keeps watch over the 20 plants and scares away hungry critters.
