Million Tomato Compost Campaign

Tomatoes 6-22-13The Giving Garden is participating in the Million Tomato Compost Campaign sponsored by the U.S. Composting Council.  Our garden received 10 cubic yards of compost from Texas Pure of Plano to help us enrich our beds for growing tomatoes.

As the picture indicates, our tomato yields this year are spectacular.  The gardeners must keep track of the different varieties planted and the yields produced in weight.  It looks like the compost is doing good work so far!

These tomatoes were collected for our Saturday, June 22 harvest to be donated to the CCA Food Bank.  Just think…this is only half of what was picked.  Gardeners take the other 50% for their personal use.

Giving Gardeners are making a difference in our community.
