Today we had 18 children and five adults come out to help at Eastward Gardens… It was such a blessing! From top left clockwise: large group working on weeding the strawberry patch, smaller number worked on takeIng ALL the Colorado potato beetles off of potato plants and they are holding the jars to prove it, one of the children trying sunflower microgreens for lunch, and the entire group eating lunch. It is amazing how much work can get done when you have so many helping hands...We are so thankful for this group and their willingness to serve here with us today! #eastwardgardens #cng #certifiednaturallygrown #adagraFrom bottom to top...Plato II, Brown Goldring, Flashy Trout Back and Outredgeous. These are  four of the eight lettuces that go into our Not-So-Spicy salad mix... we also add tatsoi, mizunna and arugula to make the most beautifully delicious salad mix ever! I ❤️ salad mix #saladmix #harvesting #cng #certifiednaturallygrown #eastwardgardens #adagraHarvesting Royal Oak Leaf lettuce for our first CSA box of the year! This is such an exciting moment for us! Praise the Lord for miracles. We have had a lot of soil fertility issues since moving here to Indiana… And this is the best head lettuce we've grown yet! It amazes me how my husband never gives up… Year after year he works the land in hopes of restoration by adding the the needed minerals, microbial life and a lot of nurturing and prayers. We are so thankful for God's promises and for all of our loyal CSA members!! #CSA #communitysupportedagriculture #happyharvest #headlettuce #veganic #cng #certifiednaturallygrown #adventistagGreens... greens... and more greens!
