Under a blazing sun and blue sky, Joe McIntyre dug his shovel into the soft soil, turning it over and over to get it ready for planting. By mid-summer, the small lot in the 100 block of East Rittenhouse Street will yield its bounty – lettuce, spinach, peas, tomatoes and other fresh vegetables – all bound for a dinner table that feeds the hungry and the homeless in Germantown.
