Experience outstanding community involvement and visit the North Square Farmers Market at 50 North Main Street. Open through rain or shine, vendors come to offer locally grown produce including meats, eggs, cheese, jams, baked goods, flowers, coffee and arts and crafts. The Farmers Market showcases products brought in from exclusive local farmers, artisans, and entrepreneurs.

it hard to go back to a grocery store for fruits and vegetables. And to be completely honest, it’s great getting what I need done while my daughter plays with the other children here instead of correcting my shopping list!” The mission of the farmers market is to provide access to fresh, local choices, support local farmers and businesses, provide health and nutrition education, plus foster local pride. The market is a community gathering-place and raises the awareness of local farmers. As North Square Farmers Market furthers the health of the people it serves, it makes a healthier local economy.

The Downtown Business Council of Chambersburg (DBC), started the North Square Farmers Market as a project to further improve the city and support the local farms. As people began to buy less locally, DBC aimed to work on this idea so the town could return to community-based involvement. Annually, the market opens in May before Memorial Day weekend. Music, kid-friendly activities and a welcoming atmosphere paired with eager participants ensure “market day” is a weekly must-do. Market vendors cater to their customers, answering questions and helping them to understand the value of eating and buying locally.

Parking, scheduling and vendor information is available at The market is open Saturdays and wraps up for the season in mid-October, taking a break for the winter season. Some customers connect with vendors for arrangements to continue to enjoy the fresh, local foods as long as weather permits. North Square Farmers Market is devoted to creating local eaters.

Children find comfort within the farmers market as well. With no charges involved, North Square Farmers Market occupies children with entertainment, crafting activities and educational games while parents do their weekly shopping. The farmers market is also host to weekly, live performances to entertain families in attendance. When asked about her thoughts on the new farmers market, an anonymous customer said, “This is just insane. Everything here is locally grown and I couldn’t feel more comfortable doing my grocery shopping here each week. The options alone make

Join scholars and their inspirational leaders at Wilson College in Chambersburg and check out Fulton Farm! Located at 1015 Philadelphia Avenue, this farm thrives to teach students and the community the importance of being eco-friendly and eating as naturally as possible. Freshly grown produce is the main food source for students that eat on campus, while some is sold to any willing buyer. The property of Wilson College sits on 50 acres of land and dedicates 7 of them to support and reinforce the efforts of Fulton Farm. Not only is the space used for greenhouses and crops, but there is also mass research is conducted on the lot regarding sustainable living and production techniques. Goods and produce are grown and harvested from May until November, as farmers see the most potential in production within this time frame. Fulton Farm is committed to raising food without chemicals. The farm uses a minimal amount of non-renewable resources, keeps pollution of soil, water, and air on the farm to a minimum, works to have biodiversity on the farm, and produces healthy produce to share with the campus of Wilson College and the Chambersburg community.

Market Day at Jim’s Since 1978, Jim’s Country Market, also known as Jim’s Farmers Market, has showcased local business owners and farmers of the region. Over the years, it has had several locations but settled in at 255 Grant Street where it offers a year-round opportunity for shoppers to get a hoagie, pickup seasonal and fresh produce, do a little flea marketing for antiques and collectibles, or stock up on lunch meat and cheeses. Friday lunch-goers will want to keep an eye on Jim’s Market Facebook page to pick-up the weekly specials, and grab lunch or a soft pretzel. Jim’s Market, named for the three men who started the operation—Jake, Ike and Marty, is dedicated to high quality and variety because it keeps customers coming to market week after week and year after year. From fresh meat, local produce, home cooked foods and treats to organic and natural products, gifts and antiques, Jim’s is a regular stop to residents and visitors of the Cumberland Valley. New vendors are welcomed and there is no obligation to return every week, creating the friendliest atmosphere that is always fresh to the customer.

Old-Fashioned Pumpkin Pie

Railroad Ties at Jim’s Country Market Driving along Grant Street, it is easy to see vestiges of a former railroad era—days when the freight trains of Cumberland Valley Railroad steamed in and out on a daily basis. Even further back, to preCivil War and Civil War era, Chambersburg’s piece of the Cumberland Valley Railroad brought pikes and weapons for John Brown’s Raid, shipped supplies and troops into the Shenandoah Valley during the Civil War, and fell victim to Confederate raiders in 1862, 1863, and 1864. Jim’s Country Market sits in the midst of this railroad history. The building was a former roundhouse of the post-Civil War Cumberland Valley Railroad. Prior to that, the plot of land was used by the railroad when CVRR came to Chambersburg in the late 1830s. On June 2, 1919, CVRR folded completely into the Pennsylvania Railroad, which operated in Chambersburg until after the 1950s. Later, after the Pennsylvania Railroad merged with the New York Central Railroad, the property became part of the Penn Central Railroad. The area behind Jim’s Market operated as the Penn Central Reclamation Plant until February 1972. The market proudly displays artifacts of this bygone era.

(from fresh pumpkin)

Pick a medium pumpkin, about 3 lbs. Wash and remove the stem. Cut in half and remove the seeds. (Save the seeds to roast later; they are yummy.) Place in a shallow baking dish lined with parchment paper. Oil the outside of the pumpkin and place it cut-side down in the lined dish. Bake in a preheated oven of 375 degrees until tender, 50-60 minutes. When the pumpkin is cool, scoop it from the shell and puree it in a food processor. It will be about 4 cups of pumpkin.

2 5 eggs 2 1 cup packed

brown sugar

2 1/3 cup molasses 2 1 tsp salt 2 4 tsp of cinnamon 2 2 tsp ground ginger

2 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

2 1/2 tsp ground cloves

2 1 tsp of lemon extract

2 1 tsp of vanilla extract

2 4 cups of pumpkin pulp purée

2 3 cups heavy cream or 2 12 oz. cans of evaporated milk

Divide mixture between pie shells. Bake for 15 minutes in a 425 degree oven. Reduce oven to 350 and back for approximately 5060 minutes. When cooked, a knife inserted in the center of the pie will come out clean.

Butter Pie Crust

2 2 cups flour 2 2/3 cup chilled salted butter

2 2 Tbsp. sugar 2 ½ tsp. salt. 2 Ice Water

Mix the dry ingredients and add in the butter. Work together until it is a crumb mixture. Add 5 Tablespoons of water to moisten and form into two balls. (May add more if needed.)Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours but no more than 4. Then dough can be rolled to make the pie shell.

FRANKLIN COUNTY WINERIES Over the past decade, Pennsylvania wineries topped 200, and Franklin County is doing its part to build awareness of PA Wine Country. Franklin County is home to two vintners, both focused on crafting a magical flavor experience but each using their own distinct approach.

Tuscarora Mountain Winery In 2009, owners Ken and Sue Hadley turned a dream into Franklin County’s first winery. Tuscarora Mountain Winery was off and sharing the flavorful fruits of Franklin County. The wine shop, located at 25 Lincoln Way West, is the team work of Ken and Sue. Ken is the winemaker, growing his own grapes and using the fresh fruits of Franklin County to handcraft and nurture the flavor of Tuscarora’s wines. Sue Hadley is the shopkeeper and wine enthusiast, who has a passion for the family-made product that she shares with her customers. “We make every single bottle of wine with heart and soul, and I think the customers can attest to that,” Sue confirmed.

Tuscarora Mountain Winery offers free tastings of up to six wines. Plus, anyone, who downloads the Tuscarora mobile app receives a dollar off each bottle purchased. Plans for the future include a tasting room in Mechanicsburg and a new location with ample space for group events and tastings. The Hadleys have a deep passion for civic causes and work to support their community through sales promotions where a percentage of the proceeds benefit such causes as cancer research, service dog training, and veteran support. Hours: Tues. to Thurs. 10 AM – 6 PM; Fri. & Sat. 10 AM – 8 PM; Closed Sunday & Monday

Tuscarora’s top-seller is The 1864 Burning of Chambersburg. The name of the wine offers a glimpse into history. In July 1864, Confederate troops ransomed Chambersburg for $100,000 gold or $500,000 in Yankee dollars or the town would be burned. The town was unable to pay the ransom demand, and General John McCausland burned Chambersburg. The wine is a much nicer experience, and received a gold medal in the International Wine Competition. A semi-sweet wine, it pairs well with cheese, pasta, burgers, burritos, poultry and pizza.

Jan Zell Wines & Ciders Jan Zell Winery is Franklin County’s newest winery, opening the doors of its tasting room at 251 Grant Street, Chambersburg, in fall of 2015 with enthusiasm, pride in product, and a strong desire to make more wine. Owned by husband and wife, Arnie and Laura Jansen, the name Jan Zell comes from a combination of Jansen and Zeller, Laura’s maiden name. The Jansens actually began producing wine in May 2014 in Fort Loudon. Inspired by the creativity of winemaking, mixing and matching to find exclusive flavors, spurred the Jansens to open the tasting room. The tasting room is just as its name says but also an event space. The Jansens welcome the public to be creative in using the space. Open afternoons and evenings, except Tuesday, Jan Zell’s tasting room has hosted a variety of paint nights, private parties, music nights, and trivia nights—all with the intent of making an enjoyable, neighborhood space. A current public favorite is Ravenwood Red, a semi-sweet wine, named after the road where the production facility is located. Most of the wine options are expected to come and go over time. To keep the tasting rooms offerings fresh, Jan Zell also has cider and craft beers on tap for enjoying a relaxing evening with friends and family.

Easy recipes; just mix together the ingredients and chill. Pair with crusty breads, dark breads, fresh vegetables, or homemade chip. Be sure to njoy with Franklin County wine.

The fun never quits while you’re at Roy Pitz!

Calling their products “liquid art” seems to be an understatement after experiencing an evening of brews at Roy Pitz Brewery at 140 N. 3rd Street. Ask any local you can find and there is only one negative thing to be said about this establishment - they aren’t open 24/7. Taking the community by storm, owners Ryan Richards and Jesse Rotz are proud to see their college dreams become reality. With 20 employees trained to brew and over 20 varieties of beer, customers can find themselves turning a quick visit into an event. Each and every beer brewed at Roy Pitz is unfiltered and unpasteurized; creating a tasteful experience that is a real treat for customers. Roy Pitz believes in its beers and works to expand their business. It destributes in PA, MD, DC and WV, so the good flavor is spreading. This award-winning brewery has made its presence known to competitors and took home 13 medals from the World Beer Championship - two of which were golden. The 1st Place medals were awarded their Belgium-style IPA, “Mind Your P’s and Q’s” and the German Marston brew, comically named the “Gobbler Lager.” Roy Pitz has also shown consistent interest when it comes to being involved with the community. Their annual event, “Smoke ‘Em If You Got ‘Em,” is dedicated to celebrating the progress the town has made since its 1864 Confederate burning. In partnership with non-profits like the Franklin County Historical Society, Roy Pitz provides live entertainment, a variety of barbeque vendors, and their famous beers on tap. The owners have even come up with a themed beer for the event, “Ludwig’s Revenge,” named in honor of George Ludwig whose brewery burned to the ground during the 1864 Burning.

“We hope to see another awesome turn out at “Smoke ‘Em If You Got ‘Em” this year!” - Ryan Richards

Tasty Peach Crisp Peach eaters for decades have known that “Chambersburg peaches” are among the sweetest and juiciest. These juicy and crisp white and red peaches are among one of Chambersburg’s most delicious and popular exports. Franklin County orchards expect peaches around August through Labor Day. Varieties such as Redhaven, Loring and Sun High are ready in August. Shatzer’s Fruit Market in Chambersburg is just one of the many places to try a bunch of different peaches. Hess Orchards in Chambersburg has varieties such as Cresthaven, Redskin and Autumn Star peaches ready for sale. They said many of their customers decide to can and freeze the peaches for later in the year. Plus, many customers say they are turning their delicious peaches into pies and cakes. Benedicts Produce in Chambersburg sells several different varieties of freestone peaches. A freestone peach is easier to remove the flesh of the fruit around the pit which makes it quicker to process for sliced canned peaches or pie making. Benedicts’ usually has peaches after Labor Day as well. Tawnya Tracey, co-owner of Tracey’s Orchards in Greencastle, says the orchards usually grows many different varieties, including five later varieties that are available into September. “I recommend Creshaven peaches,” she said. “It’s a personal favorite of mine and it’s a freestone peach. It’s a good, sweet peach that doesn’t deteriorate fast and it’s versatile, can be used for canning, baking and eating.” Common peach varieties include Redhaven, Loring and Sun High. Redhaven peaches are among the earlier varieties of peaches in the season and is a semi-freestone which can be used for canning, freezing or just enjoying as a healthy snack. The Loring variety is popular for freezing, canning and is a freestone peach. Sun High peaches ripen in mid-August and are an excellent freestone peach for canning and freezing. All varieties are delicious in pies! Franklin County is home to an abundance of orchards, farms and fresh markets ready to be explored.

Mix together: 6 heaping cups of fresh peaches, pitted and sliced. (about 8 medium peaches) 1/2 tsp. cinnamon 1/4 tsp. nutmeg 2 Tbsp. corn starch Sprinkle peaches with a 1/3 sugar or 1/3 cup of honey (optional) Place this mixture in a greased 9”x 13” pan. Combine together into a crumb mixture: 1/2 to 1 cup cold butter, cut in cubes (add butter according to taste) 1 cup old-fashioned oats 1/2 cup finely ground almonds 1/2 cup coarsely chopped pecans 1/2 cup brown sugar Place the crumb mixture on top of the fruit. Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for 45 minutes or until the fruit juices bubble through a crispy, golden crumb top.

Franklin County boasts more than 250 beekeepers and is home to the Franklin County Beekeepers Association, made up of members all over the county with their own hives. Beekeeping is old, dating back to more than 8,000 years and the use of honey is older, used originally for the wealthy due to its rarity. It was used as not only a food but a healing agent, a beautifier and even as a religious artifact. Some claim it can help in weight loss, sleep and that it can slow aging. The Bee Hive, located at 3696 Falling Spring Road in Chambersburg, sells honey and honey products from a small shop set up near their home.

“I’ve always said that a beehive is more sterile than a hospital,” she said, laughing. The Bee Hive can be contacted by calling 717-264-5943. Dave Shover, who runs Dave’s Natural Nectar out of his Mercersburg home at 4668 Charlestown Road, has several bee yards across Franklin County with bees producing honey. “We have different types of honeys, beeswax, hand creams and other items,” Shover said. Shover, who has been keeping his own bees for about six years, works full-time with bees, as his primary job is helping larger companies in Maryland keep bees and help with the pollination of orchards to bring the production up. “I go out to a lot of fall fests and things like that and Bobbie’s Gifts in Mercersburg sells our honey products,” Shover said. People interested in his items can also contact him at 717-498-0473 to order. Grove Walnut Apiary in Chambersburg produces some honey from their hives but the local business is busy preparing for next year and a new hive.

“We started keeping bees in the early 80’s,” said Mary Anne Knepper, who runs the store with her husband. They sell raw honey, Golden Pride and Barlean’s products and other items in their store. MaryAnne said that honey and the products made with honey are good for you due to do the natural antibiotics within the honey. Bees produce something called “propolis” which is a natural glue substance for them and in humans, she said, and has been shown to help heal burns and cuts. Also found in bee pollen has been EDTA, which helps in chelation therapy that helps to treat those with lead poisoning, she said. 16 | Franklin County Fresh Food & Dining

Franklin County is home to many farms and producers, especially dairy! In fact, Franklin County has 440 operating dairy farms that produce 850 million pounds of milk! Agriculture comprises more than 242,600 acres of land in Franklin County and the county ranks second in the production of milk, cattle, melons and corn and fourth in the state in total agricultural cash receipts. Franklin County also has engaged in an aggressive agricultural land preservation program and through 2015, 129 family farms have been preserved, totaling more than 16,700 acres.

milking cycle, the process takes about 5-6 hours, Stoner said. “We milk at 2:15 in the morning, then 2:15 in the afternoon,” Stoner said. “The milking parlor is open 12 hours every day.” Stoner said having local dairy farms has several great benefits to the community, including land they have for agricultural preservation. “The transparency is right here,” Stoners said. “People can see what we do and we try to keep an open door. People are welcome to come and see how their milk is produced.”

Local residents know where their milk and milk products come from as they watch their local dairy farms and local businesses in action.

She said that it’s also helpful having a farm around to educate people about dairy farming. They do tours of their dairy in April, May, September and October and ask that those who are interested, contact them first so they are able to give a proper tour.

Jamie Stoner, owner of Stoner’s Dairy Farm in Mercersburg, one of the larger dairy farms in Franklin County, said the farm produces almost 14.5 million pounds of milk each year. With each 8 pounds meaning one gallon, this means it produces roughly 1.8 million gallons of milk a year.

“Many people don’t understand what it takes to produce milk,” Stoner said. “It’s definitely not a 9-5 job. We don’t get off for birthdays or holidays. Dairy farmers work hard and are on call 24 hours a day.”

This farm has been operating for 74 years and became a corporation in 1970, but it still remains in the Stoner Family. Stoners has a total of 1,200 head of cows and 550 of those cows are being milked. These cows are happy, healthy and each is hooked up to milking machines by hand. About 32 cows are milked at a time and for each

They often have elementary, high school and retirement homes through. They recently had a 90-year-old man who had on his bucket list that he wanted to milk a cow. As well, she said, it encourages shopping and patronizing local businesses. “We buy local,” she said. “It takes a lot to run a farm and if we need a new $300,000 piece of equipment, nine times out of ten, we are buying it

from a place in Franklin County. And in turn, people buy our milk locally.” Their milk is also shipped to multiple places outside of the county, including Landover, MD, where Giant brand milk is bottled. It also goes to Marva Maid in Virginia Beach. Biser Farms, a small family-run dairy farm of about 60 cows in Saint Thomas, has found other ways of making milk work for them. The dairy farm, run by Steve Biser, his wife Tammy and their son, have the cows and also raises crops as feed for their cows, including corn, alfalfa and barley. Steve said it’s always been about dairy farms for him.

“I’ve worked at my family’s farm, I have worked in other farms, some with 200 cow herds,” he said. “About 7 years ago, we bought this property to work the land. We are on a small scale because I really like to be in touch with everything happening on the farm. I like to know how everything is going.” The family farm produces about 1 million pounds of milk a year and has decided to use a portion of that milk to make something different, cheese. “The idea always rolled around in my

head,” Biser said. “When the cut in dairy prices came, we decided we had to do something a little different.” And after a trial run with friends, the operation has grown. “It started to grow slowly,” he said. “We do a cheddar mainly. It’s a slow process getting it out there but we’ve been really pleased so far. It kind of proves to me that you can do this type of thing without being a really big farm. The quality is there.” He mentioned that the cheese has been taken to wine tastings around the area. Since starting production, the cheese is now available locally at Roy Pitz Brewery, Jan Zell Winery, Snyder’s Elevator in Lemasters, as well as through orders placed through their website. “We use the best milk we can produce,” Biser said. “It is the highest quality we can have. We’ve been very happy with it.” The impact of having local dairy farms is felt on the agricultural level and above, Biser said. “Consumers want to know where it all comes from,” he said. “When you actually milk your cows and make this cheese. People are thrilled by that. People really want to know where things come from. They want to buy products from local vendors.” And when the dairy industry slows down, it affects everyone, he said, citing a spiral of effects, including workers working to produce grain are let go, who then don’t buy their local cup of coffee in the morning, and the less people at a job means a new truck isn’t Franklin County Fresh! | 19

bought at a local dealership. “People think that there are either small or big farms,” he said. “There’s a lot of us in between. We are just average people looking for a better way to make a living.” Biser mentioned getting into yogurt and butter production if things continue to go well. “There’s a passion to it,” Biser said. “You got to love the dirt and love the cows. There’s something

new about it every time. I get asked all the time ‘why are we doing it?’ I can’t explain why but it’s there and I got to do it. It’s a passion you have. To get out in the spring to plant or when the cows have calves…you can always look back and feel a little good in it. If all farmers did it for the bottom line, no one would be farming.”

Franklin County is proud of the fresh and flavorful fruits and vegetables, grown for generations from the county’s fertile soils. Franklin County is a top PA producer of apples, peaches, corn, and milk. What better way to share the pride—and the delicious flavor of these fresh foods—than with a festival. In June, strawberries are on display in Mercersburg on the first Saturday. The Mercersburg Strawberry Festival is a community fair held at the Lion’s Park. It features lots of local strawberries, strawberry ice cream sundaes, and good old-fashioned strawberry shortcake. Throw in the annual dog show, craft and antique vendors, and a chicken BBQ for a day dull of family fun. August is a peak month for so many fruits and vegetables. Peaches and Corn are two of the top, and Franklin County has a festival for each. The third week of August is the Fort Loudon Peach Festival. 2017 marks the seventh year of the festival with lots of peach

pies, peach cobbler, and peaches and cream. The Fort Loudon Peach Festival is a good way to explore the small town of Fort Loudon and learn about the pre-Revolutionary War history of the nearby provincial For Loudoun. Corn Festival in Shippensburg is always the last Saturday of August, and it celebrates corn with a corn-on-the-cob eating contest. The event spotlights downtown Shippensburg and features juried artisans. Proceeds of the festival supports Shippensburg’s fire companies, public library, and other community organizations. Apples and pumpkins are all around the county during fall. In downtown Chambersburg, everything apple is celebrated the third Saturday of October. Delicious caramel apples, apple dumplings, apple fritters, apple brownies, apple pies, and many more home-baked goodies. At Renfrew Museum & Park and Renfrew Institute, also on the third Saturday of October, the Pumpkin Fest is a great chance to try some pumpkin desserts or catapult a pumpkin on the trebuchet. Throughout Franklin County, roadside stands and farmers markets overflow with the bounty of fall’s harvest— apples, winter squash, and pumpkins of all sizes and shapes. Stoner’s Dairy Farm in Mercersburg celebrates fall with its annual corn maze, hayrides, piggy races, and scarecrow stuffing. In Chambersburg, Country Creek Produce has a 10-acre maze to enjoy while stocking up on fresh-from-the-farm foods. Younger children can’t wait until Reynold’s Farm in Waynesboro opens for hayrides, the grass maze, and pumpkin-picking. Celebrate and enjoy Franklin County freshly grown foods at one of these yearly festivals.

Franklin County Celebrates Peaches Long known for its excellent flavored peaches, Franklin County is peach country. Consistently among the top peach-producing counties in the state, Franklin County’s “Chambersburg” peaches are known throughout the four-state region. Fort Loudon holds a Peach Festival at the community grounds every August on the third Saturday. The event has grown consistently over the past eight years. Growing a little more each year, it draws visitors from Maryland and West Virginia as well as residents of the county. It is a community fair with lots of homemade peach food and a great way to enjoy the beauty of the Tuscarora Mountains. In 2017, downtown Chambersburg is planning to hold the 1st Chambersburg Peach Festival on August 12. Beginning with the opening of the North Square Farmers Market at 8 AM, the festival will continue into the afternoon with peach themed foods and artisan wares, a chance to try different varieties of peaches, learn how each is best used, and get information on growing and planting peach trees. Mid-day, a peach cobbler eating contest will bring hearty appetites to enjoy what is planned to grow to be the biggest Peach Cobbler in the Guinness Book of World Records over the first 3-4 years of the event. A children’s area with peach games is planned, including activities to cool down in the hottest part of the day. For adults, there will be a chance to taste peach wines, beers, ciders, and imaginative peach concoctions. Live music will be played throughout the day in Fort Chambers Park and topped off with a showing of James and the Giant Peach at dusk. Franklin County peaches are definitely tasty… and lots of festival fun, too.

Get Started Growing & Eating Locally With Your Own Garden Thinking about spring is one of the best ways to make it through dark, cold winter days. Put those thoughts into action and plan a garden. The first order of business is where to plant the garden. Should it be a patch in the yard? Should it be in pots or in a raised bed? TIP #1 Plant a garden in an-easy-to-see spot. Plant near a much-used door; it will be an easy reminder of when plants need to be watered, weeded, and fertilized. The next questions is: What to grow? It is important to be realistic about the time you have to take care of plants and your level of experience. Consider starting out with some herbs in pots. These can be started from seed, grown indoors, and transferred outside when the weather warms. TIP #2 Remember to use the herbs in cooking or flower arrangements. Using the herbs will keep the plant full and vibrant. Try a few easy salad vegetables. Arugula is an easy-to-grow salad green with a robust, spicy flavor, or try some leaf lettuce. Sow seeds directly into the soil, and seed multiple crops. TIP #3 When seeding lettuce, remember to seed sparingly; don’t use the entire pack in one seeding. Tomatoes are the queen of the garden. Fresh-from-the-garden tomatoes are the reason many people have a garden. Tomato seedlings from a local nursery will get you started quickly and within about 9 weeks start rewarding you daily. TIP #4 Deep water tomatoes in the morning for the best crops. Really soak the soil early in the day, so the water penetrates to the deep roots of the tomato plant. No garden is complete without a zucchini plant because it rewards you easily and often. It grows quickly and is so productive. It simply makes you feel good about what you are doing TIP #5 With zucchini, a little goes a long way. One plant will yield about 8 lbs. of zucchini.
