Crowds descend on Miller Farms for free vegetables
Early on a freezing Saturday morning, Matt Merrill and his 7-year-old daughter began to dig potatoes.
Saturday was the second year for the event, in which people are invited to take home any vegetables they can find after the year’s last harvest. Between cold snaps and summer hailstorms, the fields weren’t quite as bountiful as 2008. But there were still carrots to be had, potatoes to be dug, and even the occasional onion to find.

OMG. My potatoes are still good?!? I thought I missed the harvest time in my garden.
Anyway, this is a nice story. Hardly anyone give away anything anymore*.
*although I did make anyone walking by my house take home at least one, maybe TWO, zucchinis this year... who knew six plants were waaaaaaaaay too many??
