Hello, my name is Alex Sanders and I am the Site Supervisor for the Grow Appalachia Gardening Program at Project Worth Outreach in Menifee County, Kentucky.
Today I want to introduce you to one of our gardening families. They are David and Sandy Freyman. This is their first year as a participant in Grow Appalachia Gardening Program at Project Worth Outreach. Their garden is located in their back yard. David and Sandy have been very diligent intheir attendance of Project Worth Outreach/Grow Appalachia Garden Program participants meeting. They have not missed one all year long. In their garden, they have grown green beans, broccoli, cabbage, cucumbers, greens, lettuce, peas, sweet peppers, potatoes, summer squash, tomatoes, zucchini, cantaloupe, corn, green onions, pumpkins, cushaw, peaches, blueberries and apples. David and Sandy have canned 55 quarts of green beans, 36 quarts of tomatoes, 8 quarts of peaches, 19 quarts of apples, 53 quarts of apple sauce, 2 quarts of pumpkin and 2 quarts of cushaw. David and Sandy also froze 4 quarts of green beans, 36 quarts of tomatoes, 10 quarts of peaches, 2 quarts of blueberres, 1 quart of green onions, 2 quarts of cabbage, 3 quarts of zucchini, 6 quarts of pickles and 2 quarts of corn. Additionaly, David and Sandy dried 1 quart of peaches and 36 quarts of apples. This comes to a total of 275 quarts of vegetables and fruit preserved by David and Sandy. I believe the Freymans are all set for whatever the winter of 2014 brings them. The garden and preserved food has been shared with 18 peuple so far. Great job David and Sandy. I hope David and Sandy decide to be a part of Project Worth Outreach/Grow Appalachia Garden Program next year. They are a great example of what a family can do with their garden and fruit trees. We have enjoyed partnering with David and Sandy this year and are looking forward to doing it again next year.
Until next week, have a good time working in your fall garden.
