How Does Our Garden Grow? New pictures added 9/15 – click here.

On September 18, we completed our 11th week of harvesting vegetables from our food shelf garden (with a little help from the “satellite gardens” of members) for delivery Neighbors, Inc.—herbs, beans, cucumbers, peppers, squash, and tomatoes. We’ve picked more than 2,600 tomatoes (all sizes and colors) and 2,230 green beans. Our totals are 270 pounds of vegetables with an estimated market value of $1,060 (based on average cost of vegetables from neighborhood grocery stores). If the autumn weather stays warm and sunny, and if past history is an indicator, our garden could continue producing until late October.
