::sunny days::

It’s been a good few days in southern Georgia.  Sunny days but not yet humid.  Long days with room for naps and games, making good food and walks around the neighborhood.  A brief respite before what will undoubtedly be a crazy summer.

Are we too redneck for setting up a card table in the driveway and playing Sequence? Pretty sure our lack of folding chairs and using the ones from our dining room table was a step up.

Is there anything better on a hot summer day?

The Statesboro Farmers Market has been going on for about a month now and this was the first weekend we were able to make it.  I couldn’t believe the abundance of local produce that was already available.  Almost every table there boasted of organic and environmentally friendly farming methods.  I’m excited to learn more about what seems to be a promising farming community once we move back down in the fall.

Sadly, I only needed a half dozen eggs since we’ll be packing up in a few days.  But I was really glad the farmer didn’t mind selling that few to me.  The amazing colors and difference in size of the eggs really shows how much interest and beauty we lose when we mass produce.

Sugar snap peas… not to be confused with snow peas.  These little babies are going in a stir-fry soon.  If I can stop eating them raw from the fridge…

And these?  Maybe it’s because I haven’t had strawberries in a while… or maybe I have never tasted fresh strawberries that have ripened in the hot southern sun, but these were so delicious… I had red stained fingers and lips by the time we got to the car.
