Are you a picky eater?
I sure am...and you can be, too!
There's a delicious joy in eating things that you've picked yourself.
Summer fruit is ripening on the trees and lush produce of all description is almost ready. So much, in fact, that it can be hard to manage alone. Did you know that there are Gleaning and Foodshare programs in many of our communities? They match up the folks with more than they can handle with those with less than they'd like. It prevents wastage and keeps our heritage Island trees healthy, too.
What a great opportunity to introduce your kids to the avenues of local food in their neighbourhoods. Because as they say...the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
And when it does...I'm going to be there with you to catch it.
