We'll continue our visit at the High Plains Food Bank in Amarillo by doing a walk-through of the garden with Cara Young. 

Harvesting bounty from the one-acre plot is part of the daily chores for Cara, her husband Justin, and a small group of summer interns.  They are assisted by other helpers, some furred and some feathered who help keep down the weed and insect population.  Our tour continues with a look at herbs, berries, and vegetable plots that will provide a fall harvest.
