Garden Updates — 08/21/2014 — 337 lbs. Donated

Hello Everyone,

 

Well….The tomatoes have arrived! This week the tomatoes are really starting to ripen. We are seeing many great looking tomatoes. During this week I was able to water everything on Monday as things have been looking quite dry due to the lack of rain. I have expected more this week. I’m hoping we do get some on Friday. However, I am looking for some people to volunteer to do watering next week should we fail to get the rain we need. During this week, I have been up to the garden on Sunday, Monday and Wednesday. The next time I would be able to pick up would be Sunday evening for delivery on Monday morning. Also this is still a great opportunity to do a second planting, or getting an early start on Fall.

 

During this week, we made the following donations:

 

08/18/2014 – 20 lbs. – Tomatoes, Squash, Beans, Cucumbers – New Bethany Ministries (Jason).

08/19/2014 – 10 lbs. – Tomatoes, Beans, Zucchini, – New Bethany Ministries (Jason).

08/21/2014 – 25 lbs. – Corn, Carrots, Beans, Cucumbers, Squash, Tomatoes – Trinity Soup Kitchen (Carol B).

Garden Updates — 08/14/2014 — 282 lbs. Donated

Hello Everyone,

 

To follow up, in addition to what Suzanne left us last night, Rich, Mike S and I were able to harvest another 40 lbs. of produce which Carol was able to pick up. We had our first harvest of corn, which looked really nice this year. We won’t have quite as much as last year, but I think it will be of great quality which is nice. We are still waiting for a lot of tomatoes to ripen, but we still have plenty of squash, cucumbers, carrots coming in.

 I will try to pick up Sunday evening for donation on Monday morning.

08/14/2014 – 40 lbs. – Corn, Carrots, Turnips, Herbs, Beans, Cucumbers, Squash, Tomatoes, Peppers – Trinity Soup Kitchen (Carol B).

Thanks,

Garden Updates — 08/13/2014 — 242 lbs. Donated

Hello Everyone,

 

 I just wanted to let you know that Carol B, will be able to do a pickup this evening around 7PM. If you are able to make it out, please leave your donations outside by the front door for her. I will be out later after work sometime to help harvest. Since we have had a day or two of rain, I’m sure there is much to pick. I was last out on Sunday along with Sue, and we were able to put together another harvest. We also received a lovely donation of herbs (Rosemary, Thyme, Marjoram, dill seed) from Stella.

 

08/11/2014 – 32 lbs. – Beans, Cucumbers, Squash, Tomatoes, Peppers – New Bethany Ministries (Jason).

 Thanks again for all your dedication.

Garden Updates — 08/06/2014 — 210 lbs. Donated!

Hello Gardeners!

We had a great assortment of things picked and donated today. We had a little bit of everything. Carrots, beans, peas, cucumbers, squash, onions, eggplant, peppers, potatoes, and some tomatoes! 25 lbs. in all. Also Sue was able to water everything which will help greatly since we have not had much rain in the last few days. Great work everyone. We are now over 200 lbs.

I will be at the garden sometime Sunday afternoon to collect donations for Monday morning.

Some may be wondering what to do with the left over space in their plot after you harvest. Well, it is a great opportunity to plant again. From Burpee: “Now is the time to start broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower indoors for your second season garden. Also try direct sowing beans, carrots, salad greens, cucumbers, beets, and radish seeds for a healthy fall harvest!” I definitely have some seeds for beans, carrots, cucumbers, beets, and radishes if anyone is interested!

08/05/2014 – 8 lbs. – Beans, Cucumbers, Small Squash – New Bethany Ministries (Jason)
08/07/2014 – 25 lbs. – Carrots, Eggplant, Beans, Cucumbers, Squash, Tomatoes, Onions, Potatoes – Trinity Soup Kitchen (Carol)

Thanks again for all your efforts!
