Last Friday Yvonne and Alicia from the office of Summer Sessions came to help out in the garden.
They harvested cumbers, beets, kale, mint, parsley, and basil. We had a great time engaging with people walking down the street who stopped to admire our eggplant and they were very enthusiastic about the future plans for the garden.
For fun I asked Yvonne and Alicia what their favorite summer food or dish is. Yvonne said she loves cucumber salad, I hope the folks at Miriam's Kitchen love cucumber salad because they certainly get a lot of cucumbers donated from the GroW Garden. Alicia's favorite summer meal is fried chicken and green beans.
