Sharing the Fruit of the Harvest

For this post I'm joining in with Kimba over at A Soft Place to Land for her lovely Garden Party. Please visit her blog to see links to TONS of cool decorating/outdoor/garden ideas!

We are so enjoying having fruit trees in our yard!! It's our third summer of harvest and right now we're loving sweet, juicy apricots!!This is a very simple way to share some of your garden treats with neighbors and friends! And perhaps an alternative to secretly leaving those cucumbers by someone's door in the middle of the night! :-)

Parchment paper
folded into a little bag; add a message tag; tie with ribbon or cording and away you go! All stuff you have readily at hand! And you might even have some little helpers:

I wish I were your neighbor! I was just telling hubby that I really want to plant some apple and pear trees this year.

This is such a great way to share our gardening bounty.
