Connecting to our neighbors, God, and the land, using sustainable agriculture to meet local hunger needs

This Saturday

Have you ever had a fresh fig?  Last week we started harvesting figs from the tree planted at the garden.  They are delicious!  Growing up in the Midwest I seldom saw a fig tree.  Those families that had them needed to bring them indoors for the winter.  Figs are one of the earliest fruit-bearing trees that humans cultivated, going back as early as 5000 BC.  In North Carolina figs thrive.  You can come out to the garden this week and try one.

In the garden now we are continuing our work transitioning to fall crops. Harvest will continue and those who arrive early can join in the great "OKRA Corral" :)
