A call to urban hillbillies who are raising chickens in the backyard ("All Cooped Up: Chickens Are Now Chic," by Maggie Neil, Aug. 27 Magazine):
If you have more eggs than you know what to do with, why not put aside a few for your neighbors? Then pick some of those gorgeous tomatoes from your garden, grab the sheet off the clothesline, and you're ready to host a picnic! (The bugs in your compost bin will be grateful for any leftovers.)
Food, like music, is great way to bring folks together.
