The story i am trying to write here, er my intention, is to discover an alternate means of exchanging food here in Renton Washington.  An exchange that is more than just buying packaged processed food from a grocery store.  Which story happens to mesh with Lara's of growing fresh food on our community farm and giving (or trading it for donations) to people in renton who might not be aware of that possibility.  So after the farm stand today i will try to circulate among others here in Renton and see if we can exchange some food.

Well i think it was quite successful ... i like the location outside of Luther's.    Afterwards i took the remaining produce, (about 80% of what you harvested), and distributed it to Bonnie & Mort & Kristen, and Krysten, and Lena and Laura and Preston's mom.  Some reports on what how they used it are appearing on my photo.  I'm going to see if i can make some zucchini bread with a couple of these giant monsters ... maybe include that with our next spread.




source: my summary of the year to those involved

Thanks to every one who worked on the farmstand,  i think it was a big success this year for reasons too numerous to chronicle here.

 I harvested some tomatillios from the plot this afternoon and there are still a lot more in the field but they are kind of small.  I think i got the last Cinderella pumpkin.  

I managed to trade a half dozen giant zuchinni to the Forest Fairy Bakery for a loaf of their pmpkin bread.  These giant ones were not the most popular item and few people wanted to deal with them.  Trading them for baked goods that then get distributed by the farmstand might be a good idea to develop next year.

Again, thanks to everyone involved
