No Need To Panic

OK.  Maybe a little panic.

This is Saturday’s harvest.


Ten minutes after we had them in the house, Tom was running to give zucchini’s to our personal trainer, the barista’s at Starbuck’s and probably anyone that had an open car window.

The Sun Gold cherry tomato didn’t make it into the house.

  1. You *do* know the story about the small town where the neighbors never lock their doors except in late summer. 🙂 And I have to wonder if it wasn’t zucchini that was responsible for the plot of “The Pod People”. 🙂 🙂
