Garden Updates — 09/28/2014 — 773 lbs. Donated

Hello Gardeners!

Although things are winding down for the season, we are getting some nice smaller harvests. In the last two weeks we’ve been able to gather close to 100 lbs. There are still plenty of green tomatoes on the vines, so hopefully with a combination of warmer weather and some rain, perhaps we’ll still get a few more weeks. However, since we are nearing the end of the season, we should begin to think about some dates that work for garden cleanup. Here are three dates I’m proposing (all Saturdays). Please send me your feedback and we will pick 2 of the 3 dates.

Saturday October 25th — 9:00AM-12:00AM.

Saturday November 1st — 9:00AM-12:00AM.

Saturday November 8th — 9:00AM-12:00AM.

Latest donations:

09/17/2014 – 18 lbs. – Tomatoes, Beans, Peppers – Trinity Soup Kitchen (Carol B)

09/22/2014 – 26 lbs. –Tomatoes, Beans, Peppers – New Bethany Ministries (Jason)

Garden Updates — 09/02/2014 — 507 lbs. Donated

Hello Everyone,

I hope everyone had a wonderful Labor Day.  Over the last week, we’ve experienced a sharp increase in produce, primarily due to the tomatoes finally coming in.  We have had a number of deliveries since last week when I last posted updates.  Thank you for everyone’s help!  Thank you to Jane and Sue for watering.  Thank you to Pete and family for making the delivery on Friday, and thank you everyone for the produce, including those who were able to stop up or leave some produce in front of the church for us.  We’ll try to do another harvest tomorrow for Carol, there are still plenty of tomatoes to pick. 

When I was at New Bethany this morning, I ran into Fiona who said since Lehigh University’s harvest is also coming in, they are preparing baskets of produce that they give out each morning.  She said they can use all they can get, so our produce was much appreciated.  Anything that gets there by around 10:00AM has a chance of being included.

Here are the latest donations:

08/28/2014 — 25 lbs. — Beans, Tomatoes and pepper. — New Bethany Ministries (Carol).

08/29/2014 — 37 lbs. —  Squash, Pumpkin, Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Beans — Trinity Soup Kitchen (Peter K.)

09/02/2014 — 12 lbs. — Carrots, Parsnips, Tomatoes — New Bethany Ministries (Jason).

09/03/2014 — 50 lbs. — Tomatoes — New Bethany Ministries (Jason).
