one big zuke
mary julie and carrie are all posing with the same enormous zucchini,but only one of them brought it home. (We are hoping for some zucchini bread to be brought to class this week. hint, hint.) Sometimes we struggle with the fairness of gardening together and sharing the harvest. This week we harvested the one zucchini and a small handful of beans and peas and lettuce. It hardly seemed fair for one person to bring home the celebrated produce and others to take home little or nothing since we all help with planting,watering, weeding and harvesting. But this is an important lesson in the garden too, trusting that another week we will each get a piece of the abundance.
