Tomato Harvest

It’s been a great summer in the garden so far! We have had a great harvest of tomatoes, okra, green beans, and much more.

We have had to deal with a lot of rain, which means extra pests and other problems. It’s hard work to keep the garden healthy, but we know it is worth it to have good food to feed our community and share with our neighbors!

Our garden has some of the prettiest flowers this summer! We have a great crop of sunflowers -some are over 10 feet tall! Many of the vegetable plants have beautiful flowers as well.
