gift economies & a sense of community

I forgot to blog about this last week (things have just been busy, so busy, too busy; as of next week I'll have more free time) but I decided to fold up the zucchini patch and give away what I harvested that day. We already had four or five in the fridge. All of them were taken save one. I would like to live in a neighbourhood where this was common. I have a street neighbour who puts out potted plants for free (which is where I got my ficus, and my hibiscus, and my oregano, if you've kept track). It makes me happy. We need to do more of what makes our neighbours happy. We need to be that change. This is my baby step.
