A Delicious Harvest

Happy Friday readers and garden enthusiasts.
As you know Wednesday found us in the garden harvesting the many delicious veggies our garden has produced in spite of the peculiar and antagonistic weather we have had this summer and fall. I am happy to report we were able to harvest some straggler radishes, broccoli, green beans, peas, squash, a great collection of tomatoes (ripened and green), and potatoes.

And the Saint Martin's Sustainability garden was able to donate a box of our harvested treats to the local Thurston County Food Bank, in spite of the fact a small percentage of the tastier veggies seemed to disappear somewhere between hand and buckets, which I wouldn't know anything about...

My roommates are probably happier to report that I was able to bring some of the harvest home with me.

We celebrated the garden harvest with a little breakfast for dinner: homemade quiche with the fresh potatoes, and broccoli. Yum.

Many thanks to all of you who have followed the garden's progress here on the blog, and volunteered your time,and green thumbs to keep our garden running, beautiful and bountiful.

The Potatoes Are In!

Warm greetings to all our readers, and volunteers who have helped to keep our garden running and beautiful.

Many of you have seen first-hand the transformation that has taken place in our learning garden since we first began with a grass, and ivy-covered patch of land beside our Dining Hall.
We're happy to announce another milestone...

The potatoes are in!
And we'd like to invite all of you to come out to help us dig them up.

We will be harvesting them next Wednesday, October 20, at 3pm .

The box of produce will be donated to the Thurston County Food Bank. So please come out and join us in supporting sustainability, our local food bank, and keeping our learning garden growing and beautiful. Thank you to all who have been following us here on the blog, and volunteering, for all your support, and lending us your green thumbs. See you Wednesday!
