Sharing tomatoes with strangers

I was walking home today from the Cupertino farmer's market today when I spotted a sign in someone's front yard that said: "Pick some tomatoes for yourself." Next to it was a sprawling cherry tomato plant. So I picked a handful and ate them, standing on the sidewalk. Delicious! How good of these people to be so generous with strangers.

Speaking of neighborhood sharing, I signed up for a website called Neighborrow that makes it easier to borrow and lend books, videos, music, games, tools, and everything else with your neighbors, friends, and colleagues. Check it out - they have many local sharing groups, and even if there's not one in your area yet, it's very easy to create one and invite your friends to join!
