Total Food Donations so far for 2013: 236 pounds!

Garden member Lee writes: Harvested 12 lbs of bush beans today. Probably will have 2 more pickings. If they were selling at $3.00 / lb , that’s $36.00. Not bad for the price of a packet of seeds. I didn’t add any fertilizer just some compost from the bins we have. I sowed the seeds on 2/11/13. Very easy to grow and they like the heat. I will bring them to the food pantry on Tuesday. That brings our total food donations to 236 lbs including Diane & Ron’s tomatoes

  1. I love that you are taking fresh, locally grown produce to your food pantry. It’s a far cry better than tins!
