On Saturday evening my friend Willow invited me to a fundraising dinner at the community gardens where she has her little plot. Mostly I think she wanted me to meet Charlie Brown, her little pumpkin. And by pumpkin, I mean an actual pumpkin. Since Charlie Brown will be carved up for Halloween, I was hoping that it might be all misshapen and deformed so that half the work would already be done. Alas, Charlie Brown is a very lovely ovoid.
The food was excellent, there were lots and lots of delicious veggie dishes, of which I partook with no reservations. We walked around the gardens and admired the growing veggies. One plot had some really flashy sunflowers.
And Willow showed off the worm bin, of which she is in charge.
A lovely time was had by all, and I made off with a bunch of fresh rosemary -- it was part of the table setting, and most people left theirs behind, so I scavanged it all and took it home.
