|2011 Closing Day Volunteers -- Blue Skies and Sunshine|
|2010 Closing Day Volunteers -- Notice the blue skies?|
Because so many gardeners dropped out in May and June with the heat and drought and weeds, we were able to donate more food than ever in 2012 despite the lower productivity/plot. We might even hit the 500 pound threshold next weekend when we pull out the remaining collard greens, kale, chard, carrots, herbs, and turnips that are still growing. You can see from the chart below how we have donated the 465 pounds of garden produce harvested to date.
