There’s just something extra special about the color palette with fresh vegetables — fresh as in minutes after harvest, and in this case chilled to preserve the freshness. This week Lewis Ginter Community Kitchen Garden staff delivered 102 lbs. of beets and turnips to FeedMore. The beets were grown from seed obtained from Monticello’s Thomas Jefferson Center for Historic Plants. Year to date produce donations: 156 lbs.
