My favorite produce stand!!!

So last year when we first got here, within a couple of weeks we made friends with the lady and her husband that runs one of the many produce stands around here. It’s easy and convenient to stop there and get our fill of vegies and fruits, and at better than store prices, that can’t be beat! Last weekend they opened the stand up for the season (they have a store/bakery three blocks over that’s open all year too)! It says on the website that they open the stand on July 1st, but we popped by just to check on Sunday, and there they were getting things set up and ready for the opening, and yep, they’ll sell you what they have even though they weren’t totally set up! So we have had vegi sandwiches for lunch every day this week, and zucchini for dinner every night, prepared one way or another. Yum yum yum!!!! As of last night we were out of most of what we bought on Sunday!

So today we went on through again! We got our tomatoes, and avocados, and a couple of apples, and Cassie wanted sweet potatoes (with lots of butter that’s better for her to gain weight then candy or a bag of chips any day!), and I got a few lemons because I love them in my tea! And of course we got a dozen or so zucchini to get us through til the weekend again. Whatever we don’t use by the weekend will be sliced and popped into the dehydrator, and we’ll get fresh again for the next three or four days!

So we’re checking out, and shes telling us how good Cassie is looking! Up another 8 or so pounds since Christmas! Yayy! And we’re talking about all the work we’ve had to do on the house, and all the work we have yet to do, and she swings around and gives me a couple of big ol bags of seconds. Fruits with bumps and bruises, and things about to go bad that they just can’t sell. Altogether 14 apples, 8 peaches, 11 plums, 7 nectarines, and three apricots!!! So I have got my afternoon cut out for me! Slicing away the bad parts, saving the good, and then I have coleslaw to make also!!! Yep, it’s summertime! Time to keep those fresh fruits and vegies flowing through here, and keeping an eye on it all to get it put up quick if it sits too long! Life is good!:-D
