I need at least 20 I think, or maybe more after picking up my goodies from our market yesterday. Feast your eyes on this table of organic delights:
Now, I MUST apologize to the folks that e-mailed me for info and directions to our market so that they could pick up some of those most fabulous champagne peaches. This Sunday, the vendor's supply was winding down, and most of the champagne peaches had gone bad and were bug-eaten, etc. I managed to pick a few from the bunch which our girls scarfed down at lunch in about two minutes!! Seriously! So, if you made the trip to our market and were terribly disappointed by the lack of beautiful, fragrant, champagne peaches - I'm sorry! Believe me, I was sad too - and our older girl... she was practically weeping! I did find other beautiful peaches, as you can see in the photo, so hopefully you did too!
Just maybe you visited the other stalls too. Look at that photo again. Wow! How freakin' lucky am I??! All organic. Can you see it all? There are plums, swiss chard, peaches, tomatoes, pears, blackberries, grapes, onions, cucumber, romaine lettuce, spinach, watermelon... and there were more foods at the market (I can only carry SO much home at a time)!
Just look at this selection of organic tomatoes from "Klippers Farm", some of them heirloom tomatoes:
He also had the grapes I bought:
and the peaches (not the champagne variety):
This is the first time I have had local organic grapes. They are small and sweet and so much different than what I get at the grocery store. It's so much fun to try new foods! :)
So exciting, I seriously feel like I've hit the jackpot when I come home from the market!
You know, I used to get excited about going downtown to dance and party with my girlfriends... till the wee hours of the morn'. Now, I am waking up just a few hours later than when I used to go to bed! My, how times have changed. Now, I get butterflies when I see altaulfo mangoes on sale - and they're organic - oooooh!
p.s. I have switched over to Blogger beta now... it's super easy to do guys, takes just a minute or two - AND, I didn't get an "invite", I just went to my Blogger page and clicked through on the "Blogger beta learn more" box. Skedaddle on over and do so too! :)
