Heaviest harvest yet in 2018 in Basin’s Backyard Garden

WHAT A HARVEST in Basin’s Backyard Garden this morning.

We got out there before the heat came on, and harvested 107 pounds of kohlrabi, cucumbers, zucchini, potatoes, swiss chard, eggplant, peas, beans, peppers, and beets.

The garden looks great this year, although weeds continue to rear their ugly heads.

So much happiness and goodness!

We took the harvest to Community Action Program Region VII. They had us bring today’s load around back because it was a little bit larger, and it was easier to sort out all the veggies before bringing them to the front to sit on the bread shelf. Brian Jensen takes care of maintenance, unloading, sorting, lots of things at Community Action. We asked him if people tend to like certain vegetables more than others, and he said they’re so happy for everything they get. He said, “I know it all goes.”

Here’s to hoping our Basin Electric-grown produce brightens a few family’s weekends.

Tracie Bettenhausen dropped off our harvest with Brian Jensen at Community Action Program Region VII.
