Notes and Progress :  It was a very good week for harvest.  Some examples are beets 307 pounds, carrots 294, onions 1,183 pounds, tomatoes 390 pounds, plus others for a weekly total over 2,400 pounds.  The season total stands at 16,084 pounds.  We are still working on the crops in the ground.

Members of this community put in the time and effort.  Saturday brought the Department of Financial Institutions and St. Benedict church volunteers to the West Side for cabbage weeding and beet harvest.  These people are really putting their hands and backs into where their hearts lead them.  Thank you so much!

The season is changing with more fall rain to take into consideration but with no change in our goals.
