After a dry summer, the rains finally came. And it rained–maybe 10 minutes before the sun came out again.
We drove over to Monte Vist today. Stopped by our favorite farm to buy tomatoes. I don’t know what kind of tomatoes they grow but they are so good, so sweet.
Then we stopped at this little antique store. My big purchase was one cute little basket. We drove on for a ways up toward South Fork. There was a makeshift Farmer’s Market…one man, one truck. He did have some beautiful peaches…I bought a little paper sack of them…..$11.00. I thought that was high. But they were fresh from Pallisade, Colorado. I know they will be delicious. Would have been more fun to pick them ourselves, which is what we plan to do for apples. Soon as they are ready we plan a trip to New Mexico orchards. There we can pick our own apples.
That’s about the size of things for today. We came home tired and and hungry…That peach pie is going to be so good with a big daub of ice cream. For now, got to get cooking.
