Garden Updates — 08/25/2020 — 484 lbs. Donated

Hello Gardeners!

Everyone has continued to do an amazing job.  Since the last update we have donated 125 lbs. in additional produce.  The garden continues to look great.  Rich & Becky have been busy planting a round of fall crops like Romain Lettuce, cabbage and broccoli.  Rich’s arrangements for rain have been quite helpful.  I appreciate all the donations from everyone.  Looks like over the next few days Rich is working on delivering us more rain 🙂

I continue to be amazed and in awe by everyone’s support as we carry out God’s work!
