Tuesday Garden Workday Canceled

Dear Gardeners, It looks like the the rain and the low temps are going to keep us out of garden tonight. We will be back on Saturday morning, bright and early, at 8 a.m. We have lots of sweet potatoes and other goodies at the garden, so please come if you can — even if…

*** SWEET POTATOES ALERT ***

Hi, friends, We harvested the sweet potatoes on Tuesday and we have buckets of sweet potatoes to share with our gardeners.

At our Tuesday workday, Sandra Webb brought us chocolate and other fixins’. Our gardeners harvested fresh strawberries from our two strawberry beds and washed the berries.

Tuesday Garden Notes*

Hi garden leaders!
