We have been seeing a sign on the side of Hwy 89A that says “Fresh Produce”. We always forgot to stop until on the way back home, and by then we have already bought groceries in town. So, yesterday when we went to town to get some work done on the truck, we decided to see what they had for sale.
I’m really glad we went in there. The front yard was full of flowers–cosmos, roses, and sunflowers. It was like an oasis in the middle of the desert!
I’m sure if we had gone in there earlier in the year we could have gotten some lucious blackberries. There were just a few left, not enough to do anything with. They sure looked good, though.
He had some cantaloupes growing but these weren’t ready yet. Maybe next week?
The corn was white, and the ears were very nicely filled out. I made creamed corn, fresh off the cobb–mmmmmmm.
Look at that chard! That is one of my very favorite vegetables. I got a head of lettuce, fresh from the ground, and tomatoes, vine ripened, which we haven’t had in a couple of years. He has yellow tomatoes, roma tomatoes, cherry tomatoes and regular red tomatoes. We got some of each kind. And they were soooo gooood!
He also has pumpkins, broccoli, tomatillos, onions, and potatoes. I only wish we had been going in there all summer.
