The beautiful summer growing season brings abundant harvests for many backyard gardeners.

Are you a gardener or urban farmer with too much of a good thing? A ton of tomatoes, a zillion zukes or cukes, beans coming out of your ears? One tomato, two tomato, three?

Call the Lemon Lady for immediate pick-up and delivery.

I deliver homegrown produce to local food pantries who feed the hungry. Chances are I have pick-ups right around your neighborhood too. If you need boxes, I can even donate boxes.

Grow it. Box it. Porchside pickup seven days a week! "Lettuce" feed those less fortunate throughout our community.

Daily pick up and delivery to food pantries throughout Contra Costa County. Call today!
