(Lander, Wyo.) – Members of the Pushroot Community Garden on Sunday celebrated the garden’s fifth harvest with an afternoon of food and music.
The festivities were pushed back a couple times due to the early snow storms, but gardeners braved the slightly slushy ground. They even made best of the snow, using it to keep beverages cool.
Monty Hettich said this year all 56 beds were spoken for, and the number of beds available for next year is filling up already.
“We had a great pumpkin patch, a great squash patch,” Hettich said.
For the first time, the garden had raspberries, rhubarb and asparagus, all of which did well, he added.
