Feed your local cat lady

The bounty of summer is ready to share, and I'm blessed to have neighbors who share with me. Earlier this summer Debra and Christy made a gift of fruits and veggies:

Yesterday, Valarie and I worked a trade. I got the more plentiful end of the deal: cucumbers and a pepper for pickles, zucchini for bread, and an additional grocery bag of brown rice and wheat pasta. She got Swiss chard from my garden. Swiss chard, kale, cherry tomatoes, and a zucchini that is just starting to bear are all I have this year. I have a start on the bread. I probably grate and freeze what extra zucchini I end up with, for bread later this year

Do you share your garden veggies with others, and (or) end up with gifts from them as well?

  1. I don't have much this year, just cherry tomatoes, bush beans and rutabagas. I've been eating tomato soup for the last week, from my volunteer tomato plants. A squash plant suddenly took off along the driveway, also a volunteer, will see if it bears its fruit (acorn squash) before too much rain happens. Another volunteer, was a cantelope, that so far has two melons, nearly ready to harvest. Do not know anyone else with a garden for mutual sharing. Wish I did. Zuchini bread looks good! I did not plant much due to my neighbor poisoning my yard, which is also where I garden, with weed killer, in May (without permission). Set me back. Killed garden starts also.
