Celery riding shotgun, cucumbers in the car seats

Basin's Backyard Garden

Sheila Renner and Jill Steinwand, picking beans growing on the corn in the Three Sister’s Formation. These are the first beans we’ve been able to harvest with this growing method.

We had our biggest harvest yet this year in Basin’s Backyard Garden – 173 pounds of beets, basil, tomatoes, cucumbers, swiss chard, eggplant, beans, celery, zucchini, onions, carrots and peppers.

In exciting news, we harvested the first beans we’ve grown in the Three Sister’s Formation. In the past, we’ve planted them too late for them to really take off.

Today’s donation went to Community Action Program Region VII. Here’s to a colorful veggie-filled Labor Day weekend.

Massive carrots, shouts Erin Huntimer. We took the biggest ones to try at home. We weren’t sure if they were too woody to donate.
