What to do with all those vegetables

The nights are getting frosty, which means gardeners are going into high gear this week, harvesting their more delicate produce before a touch of below-freezing temperatures threatens to damage the goods.

With all the sun and heat that, up until this week, has blanketed the Friendly City throughout summer, this means there are likely going to be a lot of tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, Swiss chard or 'what-have-you' in bags and boxes in people's homes in very soon - if not already.

For some, putting to good use all these foods is perhaps not as difficult as it might be for others. However, there are options for those with limited storage (and stomach) space.

One of those options is to bring that fresh produce down to Moose Jaw & District Food Bank.

The local donation depository will take whatever is grown in gardens in summer. In order to donate, one must bring the vegetables directly to the 305 Fairford St. W. food bank.

Another option is simply to offer any extra produce to friends and co-workers who might not have their own gardens, sharing in the wealth of gardening goodness with others in the community.

The vegetable gods certainly smiled down upon Moose Jaw this year. However, it's important one not blaspheme their charity by letting what one reaps go to spoil.
