I'd love to be able to donate my extra produce to a food bank but up here, you need all kinds of crazy permits to do so. I bring my extras to church, give to my neighbours, city construction and utility workers who fix things on our street, our fire house, and I bring bouquets of sunflowers over to the Starbucks near us. They love that. We just started bringing sunflowers over to our adopted Vietnamese family who run our favourite Pho soup place and they were thrilled, so a new tradition has begun.

Andi, Duane has harvested the last of your Redbor F1 Kale today and I'm going to use it with Butternut Squash from the community garden tomorrow. We've also pulled the last of the leeks, carrots, and turnips, so I'll be turning them into something as well this week.

We've got 2 more pumpkins to use now: a Galeaux d'Eysines from the fair and a Marina di Chioggia that I grew here at home (pretty small - Joseph would laugh, but it should have some good seed). I also have the only Thelma Sanders I was able to harvest so hopefully that will also have mature seed. It's a wonderful heirloom squash and I was really looking forward to it, but hopefully I'll be able to use that seed to have more success with it next year.
Grazie a tutti,
Julianna
