    Does anybody want any beets? I planted WAY to many. :no: I have canned 19 qt and that will be plenty for me. I may put up a load of pt’s but that will be it. :no: I have thought of taking time to one of those stands that sell produce and trying to make a few bucks but I doubt they would give me anything. :no: If you want some beets let me know, PLEASE. :D I don’t want them to go to waste. :no:

    At least here you can give them as a dontation to local food banks. It is part of a Plant a Row for the Hungry program.

    I called this # 4 or 5 times yesterday. No answer. :( Now I am from Lima and know how this area is! I will bet you a couple bushels of beets (if I am right you get the beets) that they only take non-perishable items. :no: If they took my beets they would have to try to find some one who would like to have them. (read get off their butts and do a little work!) If I am correct you get the beets! If I loose St. Vincents get them. I can't loose in this bet. :D

    I will keep trying and give you a report if I find out anything.
