Garden Updates 08/24/2013 — 390 lbs. Donated

Hello Everyone,

On Thursday we made another donation to New Bethany Ministries. Thank you to Lara Hurysz for making Thursday’s donation!! It was quite a haul. We had 4 full boxes of tomatoes and corn, with about 4 smaller bags of assorted produce. I will try to be out to check on things tomorrow evening and see if there is anything ready to take Monday morning.

08/22 — 100 lbs. to New Bethany –Tomatoes, corn, peppers, beans, kale, cilantro, beets and more!

We could use some volunteers to help mow the grass again, as it’s getting long again.

Keep up the wonderful work, and we appreciate everyone’s effort.

Look to the garden below for updated photos. This week I have some photos from the backpack festival!

Keep up the great work!

Thanks,
Jason & Jaimee

Garden Updates — 08/21/2013 — 290 lbs. donated to date.

Hello Everyone,

Just wanted to let everyone know that I will be at the garden this evening, harvesting and doing a pick up tonight. I expect to be there sometime after 6, and will probably be there until about 7:30PM. It seems that after a mild spell, we are back to some hot and humid days. Jane is keeping an eye on how well our plants are enduring the heat and humidity, and determine if they need to be watered. If we don’t have any rain by Thursday she will water.

Over the course of the last week we have made 2 donations both to New Bethany Ministries. Thank you to Lara Hurysz for making last Thursday’s donation.

08/13 — 25 lbs. to New Bethany –Tomatoes & Squash!
08/16 — 80 lbs. to New Bethany –Tomatoes, Kale, squash, peppers, corn and some beans!

We could use some volunteers to help mow the grass again, as it’s getting long again.

Keep up the wonderful work, and we appreciate everyone’s effort.

Garden Updates — 08/03/2013 — 150 lbs. donated to date!

Hello Gardeners,

We are seeing our first tomatoes and the harvest is looking good so far! Since the last time I’ve posted, we have had two donations.

07/25 — 15 lbs. to Trinity – Squash, Beets, Arugula, Kale, Beans, Peas!
08/01 — 100 lbs. to New Bethany – More Squash, Beets, Kale, Corn, Tomatoes, Peppers!

On August 1st, about 5 of us were at the garden picking corn and other veggies. Thanks to everyone who was able to make it out! This was our first corn harvest. We waited too long on the first couple of rows of corn, but our harvest was still plentiful, with two full boxes of corn and a box of squash as well as a box of tomatoes, and another with kale, beets, peas, etc. We have so many tomatoes that will be ready in the coming days. Please visit your garden and remember that your garden needs you right now!! Don’t let your harvest over ripen or spoil. If you can’t make it out on a harvest night, let us know so someone can include it in our donation.

Over the last few weeks, I have been trimming the garden, Jaimee was able to mow most of the area, but keeping up with the lawn and maintenance of the garden is always on going. We need your help! If you can spare some time to help clean up the garden, please let me know.

Here are some pictures to enjoy!
