Garden Updates — 07/28/2020 — 214 lbs. Donated

Hello Gardeners!

Hope everyone is doing well through this round of hot weather.  Thanks to everyone that has helped with watering, harvesting and delivering!  Thank you to all who have donated produce as well.  Rich said he’s planning for some rain today so that will be great!  Thanks to Becky and Rich for all their hard work, thank you to Joyce and Elizabeth for the Kale, and as always Wendy with more beans.  Sue your onions were terrific! So many of your gardens look amazing, you all are really keeping up with the weeding and it shows.

Met Rich last night and we watered a bit, and harvested – he took a harvest this morning. All sorts of things are rolling in.  Lots of tomatoes and peppers, we are just on the cusp of a lot of that.  Squash & cucumbers continue to go like crazy.  We’ve been so fortunate this year, and it’s all because of everyone’s hard work.  I see nice things and can’t wait to see what’s next.

Below are our latest donations:

07/20 — New Bethany Ministries — 23 lbs. — Onions, Peppers, Banana Peppers, Beans, Cucumbers, Beets, Kale & Greens, Squash

Garden Updates — 07/16/2020 — 86 lbs. Donated

Hi Everyone,

We are humming along nicely with 4 separate donations adding 50 more lbs., bringing our current total to 86 lbs.  Keep up the great work everyone.  I appreciate everyone who has been able to donate.  Green Beans are doing quite well across the board, and we are starting to see some cucumbers and cherry tomatoes.  Sue K.’s Brussel Sprouts look like they are re-growing, I replaced a couple of mowed peppers, and Rich planted some more squash.  All is good!  Everyone’s garden has lots of blossoms, I can’t wait to see what becomes of the harvest.

I notice that Lowe’s still has some nice plants, but there is also a clearance section where plants are only $1.  Mostly tomatoes, but still a good buy!  Tractor Supply (Nazareth) also has some plants out at a discounted price.  I did see some squash and other plants there.

Thanks to everyone that has been able to help with watering too.  Don’t forget to continue weeding your bed, the weeds love the rain as much as your veggies do!

Below are our latest donations.

Garden Updates — 07/09/2020 — 36 lbs. Donated

Hi Everyone,

Was able to drop off our latest produce at New Bethany this morning.  Thank you all who contributed.  I found Rich’s produce and two more bags this morning, terrific!  About 17 lbs. in all, which brings out total to 36 lbs.  We are mowed (though I was a little over zealous on the weed management and accidentally mowed over some pepper plants in the open area – oops!), and with a few storms probably at least reasonably well watered.  Thank you Rich for arranging that rain 😊.  Don’t forget to continue weeding your bed, the weeds love the rain as much as your veggies do!

07/09 — New Bethany Ministries — 17 lbs. Turnips, Squash, Beans, Radishes

I wanted to pass along that as we plan for re-opening, Pastor Candy is looking for people willing to serve as volunteers.  This includes ushers, greeters, temperature screeners, and sanitation volunteers. (If you would like to serve on one of these teams., please contact Pastor Candy) These volunteers, as the reopening Team has planned, will be the initial group that will be the first to resume in-person worship at Wesley Church.

Additionally, the Board of Trustees has issued a list of rules to follow as it relates to the church property.  Please review attached and follow these rules to the greatest extent possible so we are good stewards both to one another as well as the church and community.

Thanks,

Jason
