Harvest & Garden work, Come and help and you'll be rewarded well!
EVERY Tuesday night: 6:30 - sunset: South Jordan Garden Blitz & Harvest Distribution
Held every Tuesday evening through September 1st (may be longer).
(We start at So Jo A, then go to So Jo B, then go to So Jo C Garden)
This Wednesday 8 - 9:30 am: Holladay Garden Blitz & Harvest Distribution
Plan to come and check in with me first, here at the Holladay A Garden (my home).
Many hands really do make the work go fast and easy!
- We ask for your help for at least 15 - 30 minutes, or longer if you can stay.
- Come anytime during the evening.
- If you'll RSVP, we'll reserve a portion of the harvest for you!
- Type of work to do: Harvest crops and help us weed
- Even if you can't kneel down and work, there is still plenty you can do to help us out, so come!
- If you can't come and work during these dates and locations, please email me and let me know when you can come and work and pick up food.
Harvest this week includes cucumbers, carrots, plums, yellow squash, zucchini, jalapeno peppers and more!
RSVP if possible so I know how much food to bring for everyone.
Join us ANYTIME during the evening and stay as long as you like.
We will be in one of these 3 gardens unless it's raining!
Call me if necessary (if you can't find us): My cell 801-278-5313.
About our 3 "So Jo Gardens"...
as we like to call them: They are the largest of our 14 gardens and are producing a LOT of crops.
I will be doing weekly "So Jo Garden Blitz Parties" since these 3 gardens need a lot of consistent attention this summer.
As we are able to stay in control of these gardens AND get enough people to help us, we'll send a crew over to work in the West Jordan Garden as well.
Let me know if you'd like to work there.
Millcreek (33rd So.) Garden Work and Harvest Distribution:
Feel free to help Dave, our 33rd South Garden Coordinator, and his crew, EVERY Tuesday and Saturday morning from 8 - 10 am.
Do you have a garden you'd like to work in this week? Email me and let me know!
You can work any daylight hours Monday - Saturday.
PLEASE Do NOT pick any of the watermelons, cantaloupe and winter squash!!
We will let you know when they are ready.
Learn more about WHEN TO PICK MELONS & PUMPKINS
We are growing Melons and Winter Squash in many of our gardens this year. I'm trying to get a bunch of signs posted to remind everyone to "DON'T PICK THESE CROPS!"
It's very understandable why people pick these crops since this is what they look like in the grocery store, however, "home-grown" vrs "store-bought" MELONS and WINTER SQUASH are very different!
We'll let you know when we are ready to pick these plants, just keep your eyes open and don't let anyone pick any of these until you hear from me. We are watching these plants very closely.
