First harvest of 2017 goes to senior center

Basin’s Backyard Gardeners are putting their backs into it.

Despite heroic efforts, the garden hadn’t been fully weeded in weeks. So volunteers dug in and got about half of the weeds destroyed at the same time they did the first garden harvest.

The lettuce has really come back from the brink, so gardeners harvested that, plus kale, banana peppers, beans, and an accidental red onion.

Five-and-a-half pounds of produce went to the Burleigh County Senior Center. They usually get our first harvest of radishes each year. This year’s radishes aren’t doing so hot, but they were still thankful for all the goodness we delivered.
