The park we are in now is next to a fair ground. There is a flea and farmer’s market there one day a week. We walked over for an exercise trip.
The veggies looked delicious. Some folk know how to display all the Reds, greens, yellows, oranges and purple. It is actually a beauty to behold.
It has been a long time since buying bell peppers, I couldn't pass up a mixed color basket for $2. I really do not trust Florida tomatoes, but one young man had cut some wedges of his for samples, very good, so we got a basket of tomatoes. Growing up I called the ‘grape, cherry, salad’ tomatoes ‘Tommy-toes’, so I had to have a basket of those.
On the way out we saw ½ bushel of oranges for $6. We sampled the young lady’s oranges and bought those also.
The first thing I did when we got home was cut a bell pepper, and eat some cherry tomatoes. DELICIOUS!
Then I thought of a piece of Plexiglas Mark needed so I walked back over to get it. On the way back I just had to have two of the red fruit Grapefruits at one stand.
WE have been snacking on fresh veggies. Pleasant is the feeling. I took the above picture a day later.
(The oranges hang outside, what we do not eat we will juice)
Son Mark came up for some of his mama’s fish stew and we cut him a window out of the Plexiglas until his replacement window is delivered. On the interstate a driver had brushed one of the construction barrels and spun it into his mirror that broke off and shattered his window. He was not hurt but lost his mirror and window. The Plexiglas worked perfect.
He enjoyed snacking on the cherry tomatoes, almost as good as Aunt Shirl's.
