Garden Updates — 10/20/2016 — 657 lbs. donated

Hello Gardeners,

We have a good cleanup on Sunday, many of the raised beds have been cleared, and a significant portion of the open area has been cleared. We harvested the last bit of produce we could gather (32 lbs.) which I took to Second Harvest. We had a windfall of peppers and carrots, which was impressive. This brings our total for the season to 657 lbs.

I want to thank everyone involved in this season, as well as those who were able to make it out to the clean-up effort. Ben, Rich and I loaded his truck twice and took much of the garden waste to the recycling center. I really appreciate that effort.

There is still some work to do, but officially we are done for the season. If you have not cleared out your bed, please do so. Anyone willing to put in extra effort to make further progress on clearing out the open area would also be greatly appreciated.

I will post more pictures of the clean-up effort below:

Hello Everyone,

Was out at the garden Wednesday and picked a lot of veggies including a cabbage, a few tomatoes, some carrots and plenty of green peppers – 12 lbs. in all. This was taken to Second Harvest yesterday.

Just a reminder – we will have our first garden clean-up tomorrow (10/8) at 10AM. There is a chance of rain tomorrow, but hope it will hold out so we can get a few things done. In the even that it is raining we will continue with our next cleanup on 10/16.

To anyone interested residing in Northampton County, there is a hazardous waste recycling event tomorrow at NCCC. Please see the flyer below. I intend to pick up our stockpile of used batteries at the church after work and take them in the morning.

See you soon.

Saturday October 8th at 10AM-??
Sunday October 16th at 10AM-2PM (allowing time for people at either service to show up).

Thanks,

Garden Updates — 10/01/2016 — 592 lbs. Donated

Hello Everyone,

Wanted to give everyone an update. Sue and I were up at the Garden earlier this week and we harvested 52 lbs. of mostly sweet potatoes what a harvest.
Took to Second Harvest on 9/28/2016. That brings our total to 592 lbs. donated so far. I know we have some white potatoes to dig up, and I’m sure there will be another harvest worth, but I project we will end the season somewhere around 700 lbs. donated.

Fall is upon us. The cool weather is here and things are winding down. I have heard back from a few of you regarding the proposed dates, so below is what we will go with as far as garden cleanup. We’ll clear beds and the open area, mow, trim, empty rain barrels and otherwise prepare for winter.

Saturday October 8th at 10AM-??
Sunday October 16th at 10AM-2PM (allowing time for people at either service to show up).
