Wondering what to do with those veggies you’ve harvested? Jean Schafer, government relations coordinator, has been using the lettuce from Basin’s Backyard Garden for something other than salads. She’s swapping out the bread on her turkey sandwiches to make lettuce wraps. “I usually make a couple of them at a time. It’s a healthy light snack packed with lots of protein. They’re perfect for summer,” Schafer says.
