Thanks to a working sprinkler system, a nice heavy rain this week, and plentiful sun, Basin’s Backyard Garden vegetables are not wanting for moisture or sunshine.
That means everything is really taking off. On July 7, Sheila Brunner, Jill Steinwand and Chris Gessele harvested 14 pounds of radishes, lettuce, cilantro, basil and kohlrabi.
The kohlrabi has been especially exciting, since it’s our first time growing the vegetable. Our kohlrabi plants are very strong and robust, and when plucking them up off the ground, you feel quite successful.
The harvest this week went to Community Action Program Region VII. Annie Lindseth dropped off our goods, and reported back that this was Community Action’s first Hunger Free ND donation of the summer!
