Garden Updates — 10/31/2014 — 888 lbs. donated

Hello Gardeners!

Happy Halloween!  This is just a reminder that we will be cleaning up again tomorrow at 9:00AM until around 11:00AM. Sorry for the late reminder.  Last week we were able to clear most of the plots out, cut down the asparagus and started work on the open area.  We will continue to do what work we can.  Thanks to those who were able to help last weekend.

We were also able to get a small harvest of about 38 lbs, bringing our total to just under 900 lbs.

Looking forward to seeing you!

Garden Updates — 10/19/2014 — 850 lbs. donated

Hello Gardeners!

Our season is coming to a close with a frost warning this evening.  If you have anything you’d like to harvest, it would be good to get out there today if you can as some things will not survive after the frost.  We have had a great season with 850 lbs. of produce donated.  Thank you all for your efforts this growing season, we should be proud of our accomplishments.  Every growing season is a little different and presents its own set of challenges.  This year, I think overall we had less rain, but we’ve done better with our collection efforts, seeing less spoilage overall with a wider range of crops.

Thank you all for getting back to me on picking dates for clean-up.  We will start with the first two dates including next Saturday.  Looking forward to seeing you there!
