Giving Back to Veterans

Image
Would you believe we harvested over 105 lbs of carrots (tops and all) from the Vallejo People's Garden over the weekend? Here's where some of those carrots went to: Mario Moreno, Navy Marine Corp, served 32 months in Vietnam,








Joe Vargas, Air Force, served in Vietnam.

Spring Harvest

Check out the mother lode of vegetables that we harvested recently--lots and lots of carrots, herbs, cabbages, artichokes.












Tom with the HUGE cabbage he started from seed. He doesn't want to harvest this baby because he wants to see how BIG it will get. The record cabbage tipped out at 125.9 lbs from the state of Alaska.
















Sister Elvie with a bouquet of artichokes harvested from our garden. We have over a dozen artichokes growing from a single plant. And to think last summer, someone chopped down this one artichoke plant thinking it was a WEED!

Greenhouse

A community garden wouldn't be complete without a greenhouse. Thanks to dedicated volunteers and master carpenters Jim McCoy, Russell Jenkins, and Dennis Scarla, we can now grow seedlings in our new greenhouse!!!
