TGIFFF! Or, thank goodness it’s Farm Fresh Friday
As I always mention, one of the perks of buying your produce local is that you know where your food is coming from.
And in this week’s case, I really know where this food is coming from. That’s because it is coming from a family friends’ garden. If you’re reading, Hi Diane!
From their garden –> table top farm market –> my family’s kitchen.
And we are once again asked to be honest. Honesty is the best policy people!
Rows of tomatoes, zucchini, cucumbers, peppers, eggplant and fresh flowers growing.
I love being able to see a garden and can’t wait to have one of my own! Maybe it is the little kid in me that loves being able to see the veggies growing and then in baskets for sale.
Another reason to buy produce from local stands is because it is so much less expensive! Even if grocery stores claim that their products are local, their prices are always going to be higher.
As my Mom and I drove away on quite possibly the most beautiful day of summer I tried my best to make a memory of a perfect morning when we drove through New Jersey’s countryside in search of fresh finds. And how moments later we’d be purchasing fresh fruit and chocolate. But that’s a tale for another day…
Hope your weekend is fresh and fun!
