Thank goodness for GPS or I would probably be lost somewhere and would never have made it to the market.
Gotta love the spelling
Google maps likes to take you by the closest route, which often takes you on side roads. Today was no different and as I wove through new to me neighborhoods I thought about the variety of life in the Atlanta area.
I was heading to the Brookhaven Farmer's Market which is less than 3 miles from me.
I consider it to be early in the season, but I was surprised by the local produce that was already on display.
I knew that it was late for strawberries here, but I was able to get in on the last weekend and buy a quart. Next year I will know to get out a little earlier in the season. Fresh local grown strawberries are my favorite, and I will definitely be enjoying mine.
I remember when I was a child and my mom would make strawberry jam from the strawberries we got from my Aunt and Uncle's farm. I can still remember the smell and taste of that jam to this day.
I also love peaches. What would summer be without them, and I was so happy to see that they were being sold already. Yum!! I'll be sinking my teeth into this one later today.
Fresh picked green beans and some delicious chicken salad rounded out my purchases this morning.
I love summertime.
Oh, and look what is popping out on one of my tomato plants.
Can't wait to have some of my own homegrown veggies.
