Thank you for sharing gardens’ bounty

Thanks to an extraordinary growing summer and the generosity of our community, Fishline and its clients have been the grateful beneficiaries of a marvelous bounty of fresh produce.

It has been a delight to see what comes in our back door — bags of beautiful beets with their greens, pounds of cherry tomatoes that are as sweet as they can be, green beans and corn and rutabagas. The fruit has also been so welcome; some neighbors have brought in several boxes of plums that stagger us to imagine the tree that produces them.

Each donation goes directly out to our front market, offering an array of nutritious options to our happy clients. Nearly always, our clients will opt for the fresh produce as they plan their family meals, and many live in apartments or shared spaces so they can’t grow their own.

Thank you, North Kitsap, for taking the time and making the effort to pick and deliver the best of your gardens. We wish this wonderful selection could last all year, but because of you, we have all had a summer to remember.
