Garden Updates — 08/17/2018 — 237 lbs. Donated

Hello Gardeners,

We continue to have some good harvests, though no significant bounty of tomatoes yet. Still keeping my fingers crossed! I had attempted to mow the garden last time I was up. I had left my mower in the shed, but it was at an angle and it’s spewing clouds of smoke and oil from the muffler so I had to stop. We are taking Tim back to OSU, hard to believe it’s that time already! I’m sure a few of you are getting ready for the same. I won’t be able to make any collections until Wednesday night.

Harvest details below:

08/13/2018 – 32 lbs. – Trinity Soup Kitchen –Squash, Kale, Cucumbers, Eggplant, Peppers.
08/14/2018 – 5 lbs. – Second Harvest – Kale, Tomatoes, Beans, Cucumbers.
08/16/2018 – 23 lbs. – Northeast Ministries –Kale, Squash, Cucumbers, Banana Peppers, Green Beans, Raspberries, tomatoes.

Thanks,
Jason

Garden Updates — 08/11/2018 — 177 lbs. Doanted

Hello Gardeners,

As the rain sets in again, I hope it will do our garden some good. Tomatoes have been struggling this season, though we are just starting to get some beans, and the squash and cucumbers have been our big producers this year. That may change though as many squash plants are starting to wilt, and the squash bugs seem plentiful. Looking into some organic approaches we could take I got some organic soap spray and some diatomaceous earth. Both are said to help. So we will give it a go, though it may be a little late.

But our donations are doing well. We’ve had some great cabbage also this season, which we haven’t had a lot of luck with in the past. A different season, a different set of veggies that do well!

Harvest details below:

08/06/2018 – 23 lbs. – Second Harvest – Cabbage, Squash, Kale, Cucumbers, Peppers.
08/07/2018 – 16 lbs. – New Bethany Ministries – Kale, 3 Cabbage — Thanks Ben!
08/09/2018 – 12 lbs. – Second Harvest –Kale, Squash, Cucumbers, Banana Peppers, Tomatoes, Green Beans.

Thanks,
Jason
