I just wanted to write, and perhaps have you share this with other
members...today I went to check my garden and found that SOMEONE has CUT
off my BEAUTIFUL CAULIFLOWER!!! Now maybe it's not a big deal to a lot
of people, but we are a family of 5...with one small income STRUGGLING
to make ends meet..and I can NOT afford to go out to the grocery store
and buy things like fresh cauliflower/broccoli etc...My children deserve
to have the opportunity to eat fresh produce, and enjoy their gardening
work...yes my 11, 6 and 2 yr old have been working hard helping me
garden and grow this food and were VERY excited that we were SUPPOSED to
be having fresh cauliflower and cheese sauce for supper...and I had to
come home and tell them we couldn't...now imagine how that felt.
children already have to go without A LOT of things...there are no
summer camps...no trips to just buy toys..and not much there for
birthdays and christmas...because I am not able to work so we live off
ONE income to pay EVERYTHING. We've been through A LOT financially this
past year..including NO INCOME for 4 months..and I had to scrape and
save change to go out and actually buy plants and seeds this year to
HAVE a garden..I went without medications myself in order to be able to
do so...this hurts more than you can imagine that someone would do
It HAD to be someone KNOWING what they were coming to do as
it was CUT cleanly off the stalk...it was the biggest..the best of the 4
I had...I am so hurt you just can't even put it into words...and my
children even more so.
SO..to WHOMEVER thought it was ok to go
out and STEAL someone elses food..you took food LITERALLY off of my
childrens plates...children who really don't have much in the first
place..and COUNT on the garden crops for their fresh produce...I hope it
feels wonderful to know that..and be such a thoughtless pig to do it!
IMAGINE YOUR FAMILY HAVING TO GO WITHOUT FOOD BECAUSE SOMEONE THOUGHT
THEY SHOULD STEAL THEIR FOOD FROM
THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What a bad sense of community!
