2018 Gleaning Has Started

Hi Everyone:  Pray for rain.  Area gardens and farms need a little rain. Spring was very short and we jumped right into summer heat.   We have gleaned rhubarb, spinach, garlic scapes and starting strawberries.   Thank you Mcleans and Buckhorn Berry Farms, and Cedar Grove Organic Farm.
