Hello, friends. I'm so glad to be back with you. Thank you for understanding that I was sick this week and didn't get any posts up. I am doing much better now. I think I'm entirely over being sick. Keep your fingers crossed.
My friend Kathy goes to a Senior Center several days a week. They do lots of things there. But every Friday a farm brings in some things for them that they can't sell. The produce is borderline. Still good, but not good enough for their farmer's market. All the people at the center are able to help themselves to whatever they want.
Kathy has been bringing things home for awhile. But now the lady she lives with has told her she doesn't want the veggies any more. I don't know why. Maybe because they are "borderline" and she can't use them fast enough. Kathy called me and asked if I would be interested. Yes! Of course! Kathy picks up the produce on Friday and brings it to church for me on Sunday.
I haven't been taking pictures of it, but I am going to begin to this week. What we can't use we share with our friend, Rosemary, who is going through a tough time these days. She lives two blocks from us, so I go through the things and Joe takes her a bag each week. It has been three weeks now (this Sunday will be the fourth week) and I am loving it. Let me tell you what I have gotten.
Week 1: sweet potatoes, white potatoes and cauliflower
