It is that time of year to be thankful for the harvest. For the 5th year we have donated over 500 lbs of produce from our dedicated food pantry plots to the local food pantries. This year the produce was donated to the Community Food Pantry of Spring Green which serves all the residents of the River Valley School District. Starting in August volunteers harvested tomatoes, cabbage, onions, potatoes, and sweet potatoes as they ripened. All of the veggies were washed, weighed and packed for delivery to the Food Pantry. Deliveries were made in August, September, October and November.
Individual gardeners had plentiful harvests. Extra produce was put in the kiosk so that passser-bys could enjoy fresh produce. We had a couple of calls to deliver fresh veggies to the homes of shut-ins . Harvest pictures are from Ann, Amy and Wid, and Laura.
On this Thanksgiving Day 2020, the lyrics of an old hymn seem appropriate.
Thankful we are!
