It’s the heart of summer-harvest season around here. But even the best backyard gardeners can’t grow everything. Stuck with too many squash but not enough kale? A bumper crop of butter beans but no roses and not even one tiny tomato? Trade your edible extras and raised-bed adventure stories with those of your neighbors at the Albany Local Garden Swap (1249 Marin Ave., Albany). Nothing’s for sale here: Homegrown fruits, flowers, vegetables, herbs, and seeds are all free as long as you bring something to trade. — Anneli Rufus
