TOMATOES IN, ZUCCHINI OUTBowl after bowl of cherry tomatoes are coming into the Place Under the Pine. They are being eaten in all sorts of ways; raw, in salads, in pasta dishes. However, in the next week or two the volume of tomatoes is expected to far exceed the needs of the PUTP. Friends and neighbours may find bags full of cherry tomatoes on their doorsteps.

In the last garden update (update five) the zucchini plant was overrunning the garden and was given orders to stop expansion or face a severe cutting. Two weeks later the plant was given a warning trim. This warning was not taken seriously. The growing and spreading did not stop, therefore, drastic measures were taken. In an unprecedented move the garden committee used the Death Shears to enforce an eviction notice.
