from kindly neighbors....

We have a lot of totally nice neighbors and we live in a tiny village, and walking as much as we do, we know a lot of people.  Lately I have taken to carrying a string bag, because some of them put free garden veggies on the curb!  Look at the size of that cucumber....I added the little blue smiley faces, actually....and another neighbor has a gorgeous farm and usually puts flowers out...we hadn't seen her in a couple of months and wondered about the flowers, then last week?  She is out walking with the toddler in the stroller .....and a tiny newborn in a snugli.  Ah HA! Therefore the flowers-on-the curb delay!  They are once again available.......

Nice vegs, with faces yet. The flowers are lovely. How terrific it must be to live in a sharing neighborhood!
When I was still doing manic gardening there were always a few zucchinis and summer squash that would hide and turn into things more like weapons than vegetables. I started carving them like pumpkins. It made for some interesting creatures!

You are SO lucky. Flowers and veggies at the curb. Makes snowy winters totally worth it to have summers and neighbors like that. (She says from Florida....where she had to BUY zucchini at the store. Argh!)
