Around this time of the year is when you begin preparing one of these: a garden or crop. Historically, Navajo crops were comprised largely of corn, and in some places, peach and apricot orchards were kept. Now, a typical garden includes tomatoes, watermelon, squash, pumpkins, some chili varieties, and more. So the term has expanded from “corn field” to garden (in general).
