It’s harvest time!

Paul White of Princeton picks tomatoes from his garden plot in the Covenant Children’s Home community plots, located on Dover Road. This year, White has harvested four plots containing all sorts of vegetables including green beans, potatoes, peppers, cucumbers and much more. White has grown all sorts of crops in the community plots for about five years. He said most of the plot gardeners are retirees, so it gives them all a little hobby to work at and take care of throughout the spring and summer months. This year so far, White has harvested about 40 quarts of tomatoes alone, and they are still coming strong.
