They’re Here

Beefsteak variety - and no, I don't have particularly small hands.

The first bushels of tomatoes were picked today at the Lewis Ginter Community Kitchen Garden. That was accomplished – and a load of other work- thanks to the Tyler family: Sheryl, Casey, Lindsay & Brennan. Besides harvesting tomatoes and zucchini, the gang did a ton of mulching and pulled several wheelbarrows full of monster weeds. Those folks had determination, focus & grit. Just in time, because the Community Kitchen needs 75 pounds of tomatoes by Tuesday. We’ll pick some more Monday – yep, July 4th – to make sure the Kitchen has enough produce. Sign up to volunteer through Hands On Greater Richmond, come on out & do some light garden work before visiting the rest of Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden. The Garden is open to the public on Monday (July 4th) with no admission charge.
