Beet greens a salad success

Donation at Burleigh County Senior Adults Program

Lori Frisk-Thompson (far left) and Chris Gessele (far right) dropped off radishes and lettuce. Ruth Boyer (in red) and Vi Wolf (in blue) were excited for the veggies.

Gardeners harvested a few more radishes today and some lettuce, and donated 12 pounds of produce to the Burleigh County Senior Adults Program. We went there again because they were so happy to get last week’s radishes through the Hunger Free ND Garden Project.

Ruth Boyer is a ServeYES! volunteer (ServeYES! was formerly named RSVP) at the senior adults program. She says she grew up cutting beet greens into her lettuce salads, and was happy to do that again with last week’s donation.

As soon as we dropped off the goods, the seniors were clamoring for radishes and lettuce.
