I was in the Pitney Meadows Community Gardens very early today and picked two eggplants for the Franklin Community Center food pantry from a plot with permission.
One was quite hefty and I think together they weigh at least a pound, maybe more.
It being early and Labor Day, no one was at FCC when I left them on Carolyn’s Bench outside the entrance.
But I hope they find them when they come in because I believe it will put us over the 100 pounds of donated fresh, organically grown vegetables for the season.
We are only a half pound from this milestone. Abby, Julie….let me know!
This morning, the gardeners at the Pitney Meadows Community Gardens donated 22 pounds of fresh, healthy, organically grown produce to the Franklin Community Center’s food pantry.
Twenty two pounds! That brings our total contribution this month to about 40 pounds.
I’m so glad we are able to do this!
Thank you all and especially to those gardeners who are traveling this week and gave us permission to harvest ripe vegetables from their plots.
If you won’t be about next week, please let me know if we can harvest from your plots.

Annabelle Shuck from Girl Scout troop #3359 harvested 19 pounds of fresh produce from plots the scouts tend at Pitney Meadows Community Gardens. All summer, the Girl Scouts have watered and weeded and yesterday the organically grown vegetables were delivered to Franklin Community Center’s food pantry. Kudos to the girls and to troop leaders Carolina Mitchell and Jess Clauser for a job well done.
