I saw this handmade box coming home from errands on a new route. Isn't this the most charming thing ever? It gives me hope in humanity, and in cukes and zukes, too.
I drove by another day to see the box brimming with pears. This time I was bold enough to knock on the front door to introduce myself and chat with the homeowner, Becky. She told me her family decided to do this after seeing a picture of a similar box. Neighbors help each other in a give-and-take all summer. "We always have enough to share," she said.
And that, my friends, is one secret of raising a good garden: when you desire to share you will have abundance.
