The Unity Gardens are 501(c)3 Non-profit. Initiated in the South Bend area with a goal of community building through a framework of Gardens. The gardens not only provide healthy food for anyone, but also educate the community on how to grow, and eat healthy food.
Madison Square Garden is still producing -- last Sunday I harvested potatoes, three beautiful green peppers, the last of the green beans and tomatoes, a stray zucchini or two. Even a handful of raspberries that came in late. It's the 30th, so I guess I should do that this Sunday too.
We still have a few more potatoes to dig, carrots, radishes, and of course spinach, mustards and cold weather greens. But we're winding down.
I guess so, it's 29 degrees this early on Sunday morning.
Still busy as we wind things down for fall . We are hosting a canning class at Potawatomi Conservatories tonight Oct 26th at 6pm . Edie Sutton from Purdue extension will be showing how to can safely .
