    Last year a few children from our parish decided to plant potatoes in back of the Sunday school building. after we harvested a great potatoe crop which we shared with the Sunday meeting folks the garden area said “Now plant garlic.!” So out came the 3rd and 4th graders one Sunday morning in September last fall. The area was planted in garlic, clove by clove. During the spring we extended the idea and the garden area hoping to suppliment the Lower Cape Outreach fresh vegetable offerings for their clients. Last month the garlic was harvested, cleaned up and offered to the parish members with the excess going to the LCO. We are also bringing summer squash, beans, kale, swiss chard, cucumbers, cilantro, mint, peppers, red cabbage and eventually tomatoes, brussel sprouts, collards, dill, basil, potatoes and sweet potatoes. All this from a garden that was previously a lawn area in back of the Sunday school. We are very happy to teach the children about sharing with the community and they love the results of their work.

  • Sandy – what a lovely experience! You should write this up and send to a local paper. I’m so glad you posted it here. If you planted potatoes again this year let me know how they did. Our crop was a bust this year and I’m trying to figure out if it was just us or if this happened Cape-wide.
