We just made our first harvest of 2015. It’s a pretty exhilarating feeling. You completely fill one bag, then another. Then another. It’s hard to believe how many leafy greens can grow in one space.
Casey Jacobson, Basin Electric senior staff counsel, Della Mastel, Basin Electric accounting analyst III, and Sheila Renner, Basin Electric administrative assistant II, all pitched in over their lunch hour today.
Casey harvested spinach, cilantro, parsley and lettuce. Della and Sheila worked on thinning beets and harvesting and thinning radishes. All told, we weighed 28.5 pounds of veggie goodness for donation!
One woman said, “Oh, it’s been years since I’ve had radishes.”
What a good deal that Basin’s Backyard Garden could give her a taste of the good old days.
