Soup ingredients top list of Basin’s Backyard Garden donations this week

Basin’s Backyard Garden volunteers harvested 136.9 pounds of vegetables today for donation! The treasure went to the Burleigh County Emergency Food Pantry. The volunteer at the food pantry even took the time to change into her food pantry t-shirt for a photo.

We dug up potatoes and beets, took some of our successful celery, and picked tomatoes, peppers, beans, basil, parsley, onions and cucumbers.

Unfortunately, it looks like our tomatoes are suffering from bottom rot (scroll down to see pictures). And the cabbage and broccoli appear to have succumbed to bugs. Better luck next year!
