Fresh from my garden!
We got some, the squirrel got some.
As summer merrily rolls along, the excuses to not eat more fresh fruits and vegetables quickly lose their validity. No more complaining of the produce tasting so awful in the winter. (Which, by the way, I have to respectfully disagree). But I will agree, fresh IS best. Just take a peek around you because it’s hard to miss the local produce showing up everywhere.
