|Before Emily stuffed our library|
In light of our cool nights (which I love), I pulled the rest of our basil on Saturday. I've made and frozen a year's worth of basil from my plot and took the rest to the food pantry. I had doubts whether it would be taken, but I need not have worried. Half of it was gone before I had time to leave the building. On Wednesday, I was speaking with the leader from Faith Mission's Community Garden (which received Outstanding Community Garden of the Year at the annual Growing to Green dinner). Like us, she also grows herbs to improve the taste of the food served at the homeless shelter. So few gardens donate it that she has dedicated a significant amount of space for them. I always wondered if they would cook with the herbs I've donated and she assured me that they do.
