As a child we used to travel in the summertime from Washington State
to the Midwest to visit relatives. It seemed like a
long, long, long trip for my brother and me so my
mother would stop as often as possible to allow us to stretch and let off a little
some of our pent-up energy.
No matter how often we found ourselves in
a rural area (it seemed like most of it was rural) we would find ourselves ready to stop at each and every fruit stand between Washington and Missouri!
Farmers would take their produce to a
stand or a pull out by the side of the road and sell it.
They usually had everything from fresh corn to
cherries, from apples and honey to peaches.
They were always perfectly ripe
and as juicy as could be.
We would get some
items for immediate consumption and save the rest for breakfast.
There still are a few stands left today if you travel the back-roads, but not nearly as many.
I do miss that opportunity to get some fresh produce and
chat a bit with the local people.
Hope you have a great week, and may the weather be pleasant wherever you are!
It's supposed to be 115 degrees here in Tucson today!
I told my husband this morning we need to go to Dubai to cool down.
It's only going to be 105 there!
