Garden Updates — 09/24/2015 — 772 lbs. Donated

Hello Everyone,

First thank you all for a great workday on Sunday. We accomplished quite a bit in a short period of time. Thank you to Andy for bringing the trailer and Rich for all your help with the loading, the palettes, it was a lifesaver. Thank you Keith, for your trimming, and thank you to the Lockharts for all your hard work, including flagging down the pizza guy! We certainly had a great adventure going to the compost center. We also had a great harvest of 88 lbs.

Things are definitely winding down. It looks like we may have a couple of weeks left, and we will probably fall in range with our prior years donations. I’m estimating we’ll reach about 900 lbs.

Below are the latest donations:

09/21/2015 – 88 lbs. – Potatoes, Tomatoes, Peppers, Carrots, Scallions, Squash – Trinity Soup Kitchen (Jason). Not including about 7 bags of groceries from the church.
09/25/2015 – 35 lbs. – Tomatoes, Peppers – New Bethany Ministries (Jason)

Good job everyone, thank you for all your support!

Just wanted to send out a quick note with our latest donations and give a reminder about cleanup on Sunday. So far we’ve been unable to come up with a portable grill, but we still plan on having a picnic. I can bring some chips, pretzels and some other snacks. Anyone can bring whatever they can think of.
Looking forward to seeing you all.

I have two donations to report:

Garden Updates — 09/08/2015 — 617 lbs. Donated

Hello Gardeners!

I just wanted to update everyone on our latest harvests! Thank you Jane for continuing to water as we go through more hot weather with no rain. Thank you to everyone who left donations since the last time.

Some updates regarding the yellow jackets. Becky talked to Viking Pest Control last week regarding the yellow jackets, and they came back with some disappointing news. They will not treat the yellow jackets while the garden is active due to the pesticides. They could only treat the bed if we removed all the vegetation. He would then treat the area, but before we could grow vegetables we would have to remove all the dirt from that raised bed about 6 inches down because it would be considered contaminated. He was also concerned that we may have to do this anyway due to the spray I already used in that area. Their advice is for us to hang in there until the end of the season, planning on picking vegetables during the hot part of the day and stay away from the bed in question as the evening sets in and temperatures cool down.

Here are the latest donations:

09/03/2015 – 40 lbs. – Beans, peppers, tomatoes – New Bethany Ministries (Jason)
09/08/2015 – 51 lbs. – Tomatoes, peppers, zucchini – Trinity Soup Kitchen (Jason)
