Our donation this week included....

40 pounds of Collard greens, 18 pounds of Kale, 84 pounds of Cabbage,

31 pounds of Tomatillos, 10 pounds of sweet and hot peppers,

6 pounds of green beans, half a pound of mint (which is a lot more than it sounds like), 28 pounds of Eggplant, 28 pounds of Radishes, 20 pounds of Tomatoes, 20 pounds of Beets,
