Come out and enjoy this wonderful fall weather and help feed hungry people in our community.
We have turnips, peppers, sweet potatoes and lettuce to harvest. we are now planting garlic which will winter over to be ready for harvest in the spring. We are putting away tomato cages and tools. In short, there is lots to do.
Did I forget to mention broccoli? We have cabbage and brussel sprouts ready to pick, too.

Lunch will be provided by the Connection Café – the free lunch program in downtown Des Moines. More information is available at hopeforthehungry.blogspot.com.
The Faith & Grace Garden is in great need of a few truckloads or horse manure to be applied to the garden before fall plowing. If you have some or know of someone who does, please reply to this message. And many thanks!!
If you are thinning your flower beds and have extra fall bulbs, please sort them by color, bag them up, and drop them by the garden.
