Yam Jam fun

This past Saturday, I volunteered at Yam Jam 2010. It’s the grand daddy of all gleaning events, and this year didn’t disappoint. The hundreds of volunteers collected 21,407 pounds of sweet potatoes.

True, we did collect sweet potatoes, not yams. You’ll have to pardon the slight misnomer–all in the name of attracting a good crowd. (FWIW, there’s no music, or “jam” either)

The two pics below capture the mood of the day.  Feel free to submit your own caption for the second one. And check out the Yam Jam set on Flickr.
