St. Nicholas of Tomatoes?

Wonderful Front Porch Forum posting of the day from Christine in Burlington’s Old North End…

Some of us, including myself, have mentioned problems in our neighborhood this summer.  I just wanted to mention a kind act that was done for me.  A couple weeks ago I posted a question about worms in my garden soil and mentioned I was trying to grow tomatoes in my yard.  A few days later I came home to find some beautiful tomato seedlings on my front steps!!  I don’t know who left them for me, but I was so surprised and pleased to receive them!  Thank you to whoever gave me the tomatoes!  I will be sure to share the tomatoes from these plants and therefore you can know your act of kindness has given happiness to others too.

While on the topic of things we are thankful for, I just want to say how grateful I am for my neighbor Iris, who watches over my home whenever I am not there.  She is a wonderful neighbor and has been such a help to me over the years.  I always feel more secure knowing she will keep an eye on my place if I am not home.
