Neighbors Vegetables

Have you been shopping at the Outside Inn’s free veggie stand lately?  The popular Nevada City spot is located in front of the motel’s office and you never know what might be in the cart.  It is a place for people to drop off extra fruits and vegetables and for others to come and collect.  And while things come and go quickly, due to the reputation of the cart, the variety of locally grown produce is vast.  I’ve written about the veggie cart here, here and here over the last couple of years, but have been amazed by how some of the photos of the cart have gone viral via Facebook and Tumblr.  To see a collection of photos of some of the variety of produce dropped off click here, or check out the Outside Inn’s instagram feed.  Our friends at Peaceful Valley Farm and Garden Supply want to help you with your fall garden, because you never know, you might plant too many of something and want to drop it off at the Inn?  I’ve got a little giveaway of Peaceful Valley organic, non-GMO seed packets (radish, lettuces, beets, chard, spinach) and small canvas tote bag with a couple extra goodies.  For some great ideas on what to plant right now check out their fall planting schedule.  Please post a comment on this blog post and I’ll draw the winner for the goodies on Friday, August 23rd.

    Great idea! I would definitely use this. Maybe I should start one — I will be inundated with tomatoes soon…

    I think this is an amazing idea! I may just do a free stand out front of my own place! Thanks for the inspiration and for the chance at non-gmo seeds

    I love the Outside Inn’s veggie cart. I have a bumper crop of zucchini and plums so far this year and can’t seem to find enough friends to take them, so the cart is a very convenient way to give them a home!

    I live seeing the cart pics go viral- and the variety of things shared is always so fun (olive tree)! Thanks for the chance- I may not be close enough to share my extras at the inn, but have no doubt I can find takers… 😉

    What a great idea! Our church youth is planning a “victory” garden against hunger. The produce will go to supplement the local homeless shelter and food pantry. A stand similar to this could be a way to get others to contribute their extra produce, or set up to support a needy community and encourage gardening in that area.

    I have not painted since my 20’s, I am 50 plus years past that! I would love to have a painting of the “free Ouside Inn cart!” I adore the idea of trying it myself. Thanks much, I love everything about how you conduct business, thank you,
