The last few days have been busy for Basin’s Backyard Garden. Yesterday, garden volunteers harvested 54 lbs. of produce to donate to Ronald McDonald House. The donation included beets, beans, basil, zucchini, cucumbers, peppers, onions and kale.
Celeste Espeseth of Ronald McDonald House says the fresh food will be appreciated by all of the families. “The families here are usually pretty busy and don’t always have time to make dinner, so we have volunteers that will cook for them too. We don’t usually get in fresh veggies like this – especially not this much and with this kind of variety,” she says.

And on Monday, garden volunteers worked to prune the tomatoes and pumpkins so they don’t completely overrun the garden.
