It’s time for the return of one of my favorite features – youre great garden hauls!! Be they tomatoes, okra, apples, blackberries, melons, lettuce – whatever you grow – if you get a great haul send a photo and a description to [email protected] and please include what neighborhood you grew them in. Volume One comes courtesy of Lisa who sends from Arlington:

“My small, spotted, and a little underripe peach harvest. And I’m enjoying the heck out of them.”

Great Garden Haul is made possible by a generous grant from the Ben and Sylvia Gardner foundation.

Thanks to James for sending from Petworth:

“Cornito Giallo, Scotch Bonnet, Bird’s Eye and Thai Hot chilis are thriving! Sadly the jalapeños aren’t quite as productive.”
