It's been a strange summer here -- boiling hot days alternating with cool, rainy ones. Our tomatoes are taking their time getting ripe. But we finally did manage to pick a pint of cherry tomatoes.
We bagged them up and labeled them and took them over to the summer lunch program at Arlington Eats. It's an amazing program. Four days a week lunch is served to any and all for free at Arlington's Thompson Elementary School, with an emphasis on kids who receive free lunch during the school year,helping them to eat well in the summer. (It has the title of "Arlington EATS Summer Lunch Program at Thompson School," but around here we call it Thompson Lunch.) Along with the Arlington Food Pantry, Arlington Eats offers a "pop-up pantry." Along one wall of the school cafeteria are tables filled with donations from Food Link and other groups, including, now, us.
Bagged up and labeled for distribution.
Our two little bags were dwarfed by the the bounty offered from other organizations. But they went fast!
Surrounded by other fruits and vegetables at the pop-up pantry.
The rain has kept us from turning on our soaker hoses very often, but we need the sun! Let the light shine!
