We’ve had a lot of rain recently, so it’s nice to see a sunny weekend! Hope everyone has had a chance to enjoy the outdoors.
Last harvest had about a dozen summer squash. When I came to Trinity this morning, they were having a debate about what to make for the day. They thought they had more squash. In I walk with a box of yellow squash. They said their prayers were answered – this was exactly what they needed and just in time. One of the excited preparers in the kitchen even gave me a hug!
The garden has been doing well, lots and lots of healthy looking plants. So far, things are coming in slowly, possibly due to the volume of rain. The weeds are somewhat at bay. Places where we put newspaper down has worked well. The upside is that there are many tomatoes that will be ready soon — good news!
This season so far we have made the following donations:
7/10/2017 — 8 lbs. — Second Harvest — Radishes, Peppers, Zucchini
7/13/2017 — 2 lbs. — Second Harvest — Kale (Thanks Joyce!)
7/21/2017 — 11 lbs. — Second Harvest — Kale and Zucchini (Thanks Ben!)
7/26/2017 — 17 lbs. — Second Harvest — Squash, Turnips, Potatoes, Peppers, Peas (Thanks Sue!)
7/28/2017 — 20 lbs. — Trinity Soup Kitchen — Turnips, Squash, Beans, Peas, Peppers, Tomatoes (Thanks Rich!)
7/31/2017 — 20 lbs. — Trinity Soup Kitchen — Turnips, Lots of Squash, Beans, Peppers, Tomatoes.
78 lbs. so far.
I’ll continue to make donations this week. However, Jaimee and I will be out of town August 6th-13th, if someone could please harvest and take to one of our food banks, that would be greatly appreciated. Trinity Soup Kitchen is closed the week of Musikfest, so it would need to be New Bethany or Second Harvest.
