With Labor Day, summer comes to a screeching halt. All students in Greensboro are back in school and memories of summer are quickly fading. Fortunately, the weather was nice on Saturday and Sunday (until late afternoon) in Greensboro and people were able to swim. These tomatoe plants, captured poolside, are still producing tomatoes. We'd hoped to enter Earth Fare's tomato photo contest but didn't get around to it. The winners are posted here. They hold the contest every year in July so mark your calendar and start planning your best shot. Maybe we can hold on to this photo and submit it then.
In the meantime, we're taking some time today to remember that Labor Day celebrates the economic and social contributions of workers. America started talking about having a "labor day" celebration in the 1880's, inspired by the Canadian holiday. In 1890 it officially became a national holiday and 30 states were already celebrating Labor Day. Most neighborhood pools close this weekend as all of the students who work there have gone back to school and many, back to college.
