There is an old hymn that begins with the words “Come, ye thankful people come, Raise the song of harvest home!” Yesterday at the Joe Field Demonstration Garden as we gathered around the harvest table, our spirits were indeed lifted with gratitude and thanks.
It was an especially joyful experience for our team of volunteers to serve over 46 guests the foods that had been gathered and prepared by our own hands. For weeks we had planned every detail of the day and watching it unfold was a testament to the hard work of everyone involved.
Here is a closer look at the recipes, the setting and decor that made the day so special for a lovely group of Master Gardeners and their friends.
Will we host a similar event in the spring? Stay posted – we’re as”busy as bees” at the Demonstration Garden!
