It’s amazing how fast the growing season goes!
Some of the vegetables in Basin’s Backyard Garden are ready for harvest, so we thought it would be a good idea to start assembling the information we need to start donating to the Hunger Free North Dakota Garden Project.
Jamie Good at the North Dakota Department of Agriculture says all of the sites are happy to get whatever produce is brought in. He says it’s a good idea to call the contact person at each site to let them know what you’re bringing, and a guess on how much, if you want them to be prepared.
He says they had one case of a farmer who had 500 pounds of cucumbers, and they worked to split them out amongst the sites. But for the most part, the sites are happy to get what they can.
