THANKFUL for a prosperous 2016 growing season!
Thanks to you and your helping hands...
We donated 1905.77 pounds of fresh produce to Valley Outreach this year!
We also offered produce to our volunteers totaling another few hundred pounds that never made it to the scale.
Of the hundreds of photos taken in the garden this season, I believe this has to be my favorite. The hands of children sharing the first sugar snap peas of summer.
I already miss the life they bring to the garden.
Last week the RCS staff dismantled the remainder of the garden in preparation for winter...though it still feels like summer was just in our rearview mirror on these warm sunny fall days. I admire their hard work and determination in all they do.
Just a couple of more photos to leave you with spring on your mind…
Half price seeds for next year! I couldn’t resist!
Purple tomatillo...no way!
The final harvest of kale and chard.
Come back in 2017 and join us!
