Just Peachy!

The other day, we were in Niagara-on-the-Lake, and it’s certainly fruit season there.  Driving by so many orchards and vineyards, we soon came upon a local farmers stand full of fresh produce.  Behind the farm stand we saw rows of sunflowers standing tall.  The nectarines were planted off to the left, and on the other side of the lane were the plum trees.  I’ve never seen a plum tree before, and these were so full of fruit and so purple, they were beautiful.  It certainly doesn’t get any fresher than seeing the crops growing as you purchase them!

The farm stand was full of beautiful fruit, flowers and vegetables.  My husband especially liked the sign!  Good advice in general!

The fruit inspired us to make one of our favourites, from Canadian Living Magazine
