Wanted to update you on the latest from the garden. On Tuesday (9/6) I dropped off 65 lbs. of produce to Second Harvest Food Bank, on 6969 Silvercrest Rd, just a couple minutes up 512N towards Bath. They even weigh the produce and give you a receipt which I thought was nice. Wanted to thank Chris for picking the squash, there were quite a few there! Additionally, I was able to get some tomatoes, peppers beans, kale, basil, and a couple last cucumbers. Today Evarlyne dropped off 7 lbs. of tomatoes to Second Harvest as well. This brings our total to 495 lbs.
The squash bugs have pretty much ravaged the plants and are now taking cover on and under the squash or pumpkins themselves. I’m not sure if they will have an adverse effect on the fruit themselves, but we probably should start thinking about picking the rest as well.
