FUN Summer Crops


FUN had a very successful summer season at Peace Lutheran gardens, despite the fact that nothing was planted until June. We managed to grow 355 pounds 12 ounces worth of produce which included: tomatoes – zebra, roma, green stripe, grape, cherry and beefsteak - cucumbers; green beans; zucchini; tromboncino; jalapenos; green peppers and radishes. If Mother Nature cooperates, we will have a fall harvest of lettuce, kale, peas, turnips and carrots. 


All of the vegetables harvested by FUN were donated to a local food pantry.

Next year, FUN will serve as overseers for this garden, working with families from a nearby elementary school to teach them how to grow their own food. We have already begun planning for 2020 and are extremely excited to help bring fresh, healthy, “home-grown” produce to people in our neighborhood.
