Harvest Time

A BIG thank you for your presence and assistance last Friday 5 September. We picked a record number of tomatoes and greatly appreciated all of the helpful comments and recommendations as well as your hard work in the hot humid weather. We hope you made it back home before the storm!

This Friday, 12 September, we hosted a “pick-for-charity” event from 4:00-5:00PM. The vegetables that we picked will go toward a few food banks in the area that have greatly benefited from the garden’s vegetables this summer, including one that received the tomatoes you picked last Friday.
