Peaches & Nectarines

Naturally, visiting a farmer’s market means directly supporting our local community. The money that farmers and other vendors make goes directly to them and has no middleman. Food grown locally does not travel huge distances. In a world far removed from our sources, fulfilling some of your needs at a farmer’s market is a decision rooted in conscience.

Wine is constant proof that God loves us and loves to see us happy.

I don't think of myself as a role model. I do try to live in a compassionate, considerate and positive way. The only advice I can offer is to find what you love to do, find the joy in it, and express yourself through your passion.

Wow these do look wonderfully delicious, I remember the produce that my parents
got 40 years ago was far superior to anything I have seen in a store, shame really.

Hmmm, I am thinking peach cake right now! In our area the farmers would put out their stands in front of their farms but this year Leamington has made a farmer's market available so everyone can gather in one place, mush easier. Great dof Eric, the photo is delicious!
