We are having a terrific year in  the garden!!
Last week alone we harvested and donated 3,689 pounds of vegetables. The greatest weekly harvest by far in the history of this garden!
As of August 5, we harvested and donated 10,702 pounds of vegetables. For reference, while 2022 was a good year in the garden, last year at this time we harvested just 4,229 pounds of vegetables.
Here are harvest and donation results through August 5:

Potato harvest delayed…we hope to start later this week.
Many of our volunteers are not available for the next 2 weeks (vacations, back to school, etc). Now is a great time to become a garden volunteer. Give it a try! Sign-up at the end of this message.
