Today we went to the produce barn and got some Florida tomatoes and some cantaloupes. We can get them there earlier because they buy to sell until their own local ones come in. They still have some strawberries, fresh asparagus, and yellow squash. I love summer when you can get fresh veggies and fruits locally. Where we lived before, we had a huge garden with everything imaginable. I canned and froze. We had fruit trees and blueberries in addition to veggies. We planted "greens" in spring and fall. I really miss our own garden, but we just don't have the space here to do it. Besides, there are too many deer. I could go to the garden and pick each day our dinner, and then run down to the lake to catch a fish to complete dinner. That was really great.
