Too many vegetables?
For those of you who planted too many cucumbers or tomatoes or whatever vegetables and have canned/frozen/eaten them until you are tired of them, remember the food banks in your area.
We had so many cucumbers this year that friends and neighbors had started running the other way when they saw me coming with a bag. I had made pickles until my kitchen was a sticky mess and every flat surface was covered with canning supplies and cukes. Then I remembered the food bank just down the road from me and "bingo!" had the solution. They were extremely grateful to get them and now I don't have to put perfectly good vegetables on the compost pile any more.
Check with your local churches or the Cooperative Extension office in your county for possible places to donate your excess. You will feel good about it and those folks a bit down on their luck will eat better as well.
