August 2017 Garden Update

After a long, hot summer, the garden is tired but still diligently producing tasty okra, tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, and watermelon. July was a bountiful month and, to date, we've harvested about 1,550 pounds of produce for our patients! As the summer vegetables wind down, we look forward to seeding lettuce, beets, chard, cabbage, collards, and radishes in the coming weeks as the weather cools (fingers crossed!). 

Big thanks to our garden volunteers this past month from Edenton Street United Methodist Church, Crossroads Fellowship, and Triangle Healthcare Executives’ Forum! With all of our volunteer help, we had some awesome garden clean-up and were able to start prepping for the Fall. We also planted some Fall wildflowers!

Join us next month as we say goodbye to summer veggies and do some fall planting!

Come dig in our garden!
