Burgi and Liz with some of the harvest
Today was a harvest morning in the garden. It always takes longer than I expect. We started at 7:30 and finished at about 9:30. Then we delivered to Good Samaritan's of Garland--as always a lovely place to visit. Pam Swendig and the volunteers at Good Sam's do such a great job of managing the place.
Burgi and I picked three containers of blackberries; 12 grocery bags of Kale (about 4 servings each); four bags of red spinach; one bag of Malabar spinach; two bags or oregano; four bags of basil and two bags of mint. Our total count in weight this visit was 13 pounds. But it all adds up over our long growing season. For the past three years Loving Garland Green has averaged 450 pounds of produce a year. Never hesitate to give because you think the gift from your garden is too small. Feeding even one person one meal is never small.
