The apples are coming. We have greens. The first of the autumn varieties are beginning to arrive (keep your fingers crossed for sweet potatoes in the next few weeks.) The summer crops -- tomatoes, corn peaches, plums are abundant and at their peak. It doesn't get much better than this, yum.
Our season has been, in one important way, a little too successful. All the attention we have gotten has meant that our Bonus Fund (The one that allows food assistance to double the value of their vouchers) is draining faster than we'd planned and we may have to cut back the program. If you are in a position to help us replenish this fund, we would be grateful for any donation, large or small.
EVERY PENNY OF PAYPAL DONATIONS WILL GO TO THE BONUS DOLLARS FUND.
