The Black Mountain Home for Children Garden continues to grow and produce. Unfortunately our volunteers have dwindled. We accomplish much each time we work, but always leave with undone tasks for “next time.” Meanwhile weeds keep growing and pests keep chomping. Please call Jane Laping or Ann Kieffer for directions or any questions.
Recent harvests shared with Manna have included collards, broccoli raab, basil, and daikons. We were able to harvest a pound or so of our Kentucky wonder beans last Saturday. More will be coming soon. Our scarecrows have succeeded in keeping the crows out of our corn patches thus far! We are looking forward to harvesting tomatoes, eggplants, peppers, cabbage, squash, pumpkins, watermelons, and sweet potatoes, as well as corn with the grace of God.
We continue to be blessed by volunteers from here at FPCA and from different faith communities, so come on out on Saturdays from 9am—11 am and join us! Directions are online or call Ann Kieffer.
