Celebrating Good Work

Summer at GG

Since GG was closed on Monday, we kicked off our week with Sue Weaver and our Tuesday cooking project. Dustin, Tori, and Sue made beef stroganoff and homemade cinnamon applesauce. Yum! Everyone loves Tuesdays here!
The rest of the week wasn't as tasty, but it was definitely busy. We made jam, worked in the greenhouse and warehouse, and, of course, dodged raindrops to get some important outside tasks done. We are quite ready for the rain to go away so we can spend more time in the gardens and raised beds! Our CSA pick up days will be here before we know it!

For I was hungry and you gave me food;
I was thirsty and you gave me a drink;
I was a stranger and you took me in;
I was naked and you clothed me;
I was sick and you visited me.
I was in prison and you came to me.

.....When you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters,
you were doing it to me.

Matthew 25: 35-36, 40
