It’s working! The garden is now producing in sufficient quantities that we have enough to donate to food banks. Ann and I spent our entire time at the garden just harvesting what was ripe. We picked a large bag of kale, at least 15 pounds of peas, and a dozen or so summer squash and took them to Swannanoa Valley Christian Ministries and MANNA. We didn’t have time for weeding or other garden chores because there is so much that is ready to be eaten. Our priority at the garden will now shift to harvesting because there should be something ready for harvest every week from now to the end of the summer. Isn’t it wonderful how God provides us with what we need to feed ourselves and to feed the hungry too?
