    One of my favorite summer activities is gardening. It’s wonderful to pick your own vegetables and to enjoy the beautiful flowers. I have never played cornhole, but this project tempts me into trying it.

    Cornhole, fun game! Great for every age and skill level. Thanks for the tutorial. I hadn’t contemplated the weight or contents of the bags.
