But not out of my garden. Main reasons - I don't have a vegetable garden, don't have the know how to have a successful one, don't want the work involved, don't have the room for one here, and to much shade. Is that enough reasons? :D
So like many others - off to the farmer's market, roadside stands, etc.. One of my Grands and I made a pizza run one evening recently for dinner, and we passed a roadside stand. I told her to remind me on the way back to stop and get a watermelon - she thought that was a great idea.
Made the stop, popped open the trunk and told the man I needed a nice ripe melon..............
and added some yummy looking ripe tomatoes.
Asked Grand if she saw anything she would like. Oh Yes ! Peaches! They were ripe and you could smell them several feet away.
Paid the man, and went our way. We had not gone far down the road and we could smell the peaches inside the car, along with the aroma of fresh baked pizza - Yummmmm..........! Was that a perfect pairing of food ? Have no clue - probably not. However, it tasted yummy and what made it even better was the fact I did not have to cook dinner that evening.
Antique, wooden bowl the peaches are in ? Bought at a yard sale in the late 70's from a very old lady, who said it had been in her family as long as she could remember. Price 50 cts.
Summer reds !
A little editing done here.I am really "slipping" these days, as I have not cooked a pot of fresh purple hull peas, or yellow squash with onions, yet this Summer. Had planned on going to the farmers' market today for fresh vegetables, local made pepper jelly and chow chow. However, after I ran my other errands, and getting so hot in and out of the car I decided to wait. Plus since the peas and fried squash requires at least a tiny bit of bacon drippings to cook them just right, it would require a trip to the grocery - which I was NOT going to do today.
Just trying to "Keep things simple these days" .

ETA: Forgot to take a picture of the melon after it was cut, but it too was a beautiful Summer red and yummy.
