It’s hard to see just how yummy the fruits and veggies look here, but you can tell that we had a huge harvest this morning! So many yummy things were donated to our local food bank.

This harvest included: collard greens, Swiss chard, kale, potatoes, chives, broccoli, zucchini, turnips, radishes, and carrots!

Keep visiting Sproutside if you would like to taste some produce. We will have lots of tomatoes ready soon!
