Gardens winding down but still productive

We were able to gather a lot of produce this week for the Saturday food giveaway. We even had enough food to give some to the Louisburg soup kitchen. Even though it is late in the growing season (August) the gardens are still kicking out peas, beans, tomatoes, and peppers like crazy. We were sorry to see at one of the donated gardens where we pick that the cucumbers had overripened and been lost. Still, we had a full car full of food -- and several local gardeners dropped off boxes of more: cantaloupes, cucumbers, zucchinis, and more! During the giveaway, many families and providers stopped by and picked up several bags each of produce. We were able to give away hundreds of tomatoes (everyone around here seems to still be getting tons of tomatoes).

Giving away food is a great way to solidify relationships and deepen friendships, isn't it? Sad that the cucumbers were lost, they might have made wonderful holiday gifts (canned pickles).
