Thunderstorm, Tornado, Tomatoes, Toma-toes By Angel and Eric

Wednesday, August 24. London was expecting a thunderstorm and was under a tornado watch. Since it was just a tornado watch, and it was suppose to happen during the evening, Veggie City crew decided to go on with the distribution night. It didn’t rain earlier in the day as we expected which made it easier for us to set everything up for our shareholders to come and pick up their veggies. Eventually it started to rain but it wasn’t too bad and at the end of the day, it was a successful day.
            Despite the rain, it was a great night! We had collected a lot of goods from our gardens, we had an average of 700 cherry tomatoes, and many other vegetables. Also, the public healthcare nurse Jane came by to watch and help despite the tornado watch, she also thought many cool facts such as “root vegetables are good for your cholesterol”. With the help of Jane we decided to change the location to the side of the plaza in case of rain. Jane is also going to talk to the dietician at the Middlesex Health Unit and get some squash recipes for our shareholders to try. 
Just remember, rain or shine, Veggie City always does the job and we try to satisfy everybody.
Lots of Love from
Angelito (Deejay) and Ericito (Phil)
