Harvest Time - Thursdays 9:00 - 10:00

We are grateful to our new Alpine-ian friends Eva and Jesse for their volunteer help in the garden. Here's a picture from last week of Eva harvesting beans inside the bean teepee.

The garden is coming on strong now. We still have lots of greens: mainly kale and collard and the 80 tomato plants are all in various stages of ripening.

We have a request for those of you who are picking from the garden for your own needs: please let us know if you have needs for large quantities of anything, or if you wish to pick something other than tomatoes and greens. Some of the plants are being saved for seed and some of the bean varieties are meant to dry on the vine.

You can reach us at 847-8797
