This 80lb motherload of beautiful tomatoes are courtesy of a local fellow Freedom Gardener (who heard it “through the grapevine” from another fellow Freedom Gardener ) that we were short of our typical surplus of tomatoes (normally harvest ~1,000 lbs and we are probably going to harvest less than 1/2 that this year). Through a brief online correspondence via our sister site, we arranged a 1/2 & 1/2 swap. 1/2 cash and 1/2 goods.
Thanks to this local FGer generosity we now have enough tomatoes to preserve and get us through the fall and winter.
We are getting more and more feedback how wonderful our sister site is and it’s only going to get better – promise! I think Freedom Gardens came at an opportune time for everyone, don’t you?
I hope all are gaining friendships and knowledge and even a couple tomatoes along the way!
This is just the beginning!
Guess what I will be doing for the next couple days – tomato sauce, salsa anyone?
