I think it might be because I live in a small town. We don't have a soup kitchen so other than the few who try to sell their produce in the Farmer's Market, any overabundance is passed on to neighbors, who pass it on to others, etc.

Labor Day weekend things are heating up around here - almost in the 90s according to the long range forecast. I hope things are cooler your way and that you can wait for a sale!

You are such a good mum!
