This post contains numerous pictures of the volunteers and missionaries serving
at the Sandy Vegetable Farm.

We are continuing with the harvest and will do so now until the frost.   Some of our crops withstand frost; they being celery, cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower. 

We also have grapes surrounding the perimeter of the Farm.  After the first frost, these grapes will be ready to be picked.  For the last two years we have picked grapes and bottled delicious grape juice.  We are planning on doing picking grapes again this year, as this will be our last year at the Farm.

HARVEST to date is 17,626 pounds !
