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.

07/10 — Trinity Soup Kitchen   — 12 lbs. Squash — Thanks Rich!

07/13 — New Bethany Ministries — 25 lbs. Beans, Beets, Turnips Squash, Kale, Cucumbers

07/14 — Trinity Soup Kitchen   — 3 lbs. Kale, Radishes/Parsnips, Cucumber

07/16 — New Bethany Ministries — 10 lbs. Beans, Squash, Zucchini, Banana Peppers, Green Pepper, Kale, Cauliflower, Cherry Tomatoes

Thanks,

Jason

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
