The garden is looking so much better after all the weeding and harvesting done by our 15 volunteers last week, and is looking even better after 6 adults and 2 children volunteered this week. It was such a delight to see the kids excited about picking a tomato that looked like a snowman or simply playing in the dirt. We all worked on weeding the tomatoes and sweet potatoes because they still have some growing to do but Laura got the star for best weeder of the group. Ellen and Michael moved the trellis from the finished peas to a new crop of beans. In addition we harvested beans, some tomatoes, yellow and patty pan squash, and cucumbers.
Ann and I took our harvest this week to the Welcome Table of Swannanoa. They have a food pantry on Tuesdays and serve a free meal on Wednesdays that is open to everyone. Many people come not because they are hungry for food, but because they are hungry for fellowship.
