We have benefit of a wonderful City Farmer's Market.
We also have benefit of many Local Roadside Stands
located here and there, not far from our home.
Each, both are wonderful.
This is a post to honor the local farmer
and summertime roadside stands.
The other day we took some time to visit a few roadside stands,
Sodini's Blueberry farm was one of our stops
we purchased already picked and started eating them right out of the box
Shortly after arriving home
I made a yummy Blueberry Torte for starters.
I'll be making Blueberry Muffins next.
River Road Roadside Stand
fresh veggies daily
Just a hop, skip and a jump
really not far from our home, there is a small veggie stand.
I drive by this stand when leaving the house to go out and about
and drive right by when I am returning home.
Perfect place to make a quick stop
to pick up some fresh veggies for our evening meal.
can you believe it, only 25 cents each
Naan Bread, Veggie Pizza
I cut up some zucchini and summer squash,
and began to saute' the veggies
with sliced onions, peppers, tomatoes.
I brought out a cookie sheet,
added a bit of olive oil to the Naan bread,
sprinkled some pepper cheese on the bread,
added the veggies, added more cheese on top,
set the oven at 400 degrees
and baked the Naan bread, veggie pizza
for about 8-9 minutes.
no doubt about it
Maple island Road
but right down the road we found another
and it is a gem
the photos say it all
this stand was totally self serve
one red money box, a few signs and some corn
loved this, one size bag for 1 dozen and a different sized bag for 2 dozen
I was over the moon at this tackle box, tool box, make shift money box
duct tape signage works too
this was the first corn pick of the season,
very young corn is truly my favorite
I bet the next pick will be perfect
Michigan Home Grown Sweet Corn
Zucchinis terrific!Like bunnies, prolific!
The trouble is, you cannot grow just one zucchini. Minutes after you
plant a single seed, hundreds of zucchini will barge out of the ground
and sprawl around the garden, menacing the other vegetables. At
night, you will be able to hear the ground quake as more and more
There Are No Happier Folks
Than Plant Lovers
And None More Generous
Than Those Who Garden.

Gardening is cheaper than therapy
and you get tomatoes.
