Plant a Row for the Hungry

Foothills MG vegetable garden
A devoted Master Gardeners of the Foothills group has been growing vegetables all summer and fall in the Heirloom Vegetable Garden site.  It's resulted in well over 600 lbs. of produce to our local food banks.

In the spirit of the Garden Writer Association initiative, I've titled this Plant a Row for the Hungry -- they've been encouraging this for years.  But lots of groups are doing this;  we have a lot of open space in our cities and towns that could be used to grow food. Often, it's devoted to lawn.

But look at the fall plantings they've made.  What a lovely, productive garden!

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
