Your eyes are not deceiving you.... this is actually the beautiful bounty I came home with last weekend! I am off to do it again tomorrow after yoga. The University Farm Organic Growers is a non profit organization that is essentially, a community garden. I'm still getting the hang of all this, but if you go volunteer by picking what the garden-leaders require for garden upkeep, you can pick whatever is ready that you wish to take and have it for free!
Actually they don't even seem to require your hard labour in line with their goals, but I feel the need to give back lest my food rot in my mouth with bad karma.
I came home with the following goodies:
- LEMON BASIL!
- swiss chard
- red leaf lettuce
- green leaf lettuce
- and a corn stalk and some string beans
