Today is Nourish Your Neighbor, the friends of theLoop effort to donate fresh vegetables from our gardens to the local Food Pantry.
The bin in front of Ed Merians’ house was starting to fill up Tuesday morning (pictured) and here is a note from him:
The beautifully decorated bin provided by the Sheldrake Environmental Center is out in front of my house. It already contains 4 pounds of carrots, 5 pounds of string beans, 15 pounds of cucumbers, 3 pounds of summer squash and some lettuce that’s too hard to wrestle on to a scale. My tomatoes were consumed by squirrels, chipmunks and a family of three wood chucks. Tomatillos and some tomatoes may be ready tonight. Good luck to us. I signed up for packing groceries tonight at the pantry and will bring the first load with me.
