If you think you have the ultimate racing cucumber growing in your garden, or can bring a peeler or apple corer to share, please do! All leftover cucumber donations will go to Neighbor to Neighbor, and scraps go to our compost.  Ms. D brought some Dogwood cherries that some preschool friends of hers collected. They make great racer lights!
