Produce Exchange Sunday 9/26 at Beverly's House

A big "Thank You" to Lori for volunteering her home for our last wonderful exchange. WOW, what a bounty of  beautiful fruits and veggies, plants and bread (Thank you to Antonio of Nopalito Nursery  for sending your cousin, the amazing Culinary Student from San Francisco)!

The 19th Exchange saw more than 36 people sharing the following:
Mint, oregano, avocados, juice oranges, chard, kale, carrots, tomatoes, apples, greens, eggplant, squash, lemons, mandarins, beets, plants, meyer lemons, figs (my personal favorite), chiles, rosemary, sage, parsely, basil, tomatillos, garlic plant, cantalope , watermelon, nectarines, lavender, chives, carrots, lavender bundles, orange peppers, San Marzano tomatoes, tarragon, marjoram, the ever-popular Dog Treats, zucchini, grapefruit, bell peppers, society garlic plants, succulent starts and artisan bread.

Thank you one and all - whether you were volunteering, on the giving or receiving end or both !
What a great community of
gardeners and gatherers !
