Thank you, farmers and farm families.
My walk from the subway to my gym takes me past both Lincoln Center and a local farmer's market. The market is set up across from Lincoln Center several times a week and the produce is amazing. Even though I live in the center of the densest urban area in the country there are fabulous farm fresh fruits and vegetables just a mile from my house. I know this doesn't happen by magic, but rather by the hard work of the farmers of New York and New Jersey. This summer I've made every effort to buy local produce and the effort has been so worthwhile. My favorite fruit has been the actually ripe peaches that have been the glory of the summer. They are every bit as good as the peaches I remember from childhood, sweet and so juicy.
I was delighted to find the first apples of the season. I did hold off buying them, and instead chose a selection of sweet plums and donut peaches. Plums and peaches have a shorter season and I've got the entire fall to enjoy apples.
I'm a day late, but happy to announce the four winners of the Sonic coupons. They are Tracy, Anne, Kelly and Carol Sue. I will email the winners in the next day. I so appreciate everyone who stopped by and shared their favorite flavors, and as always wish I had more coupons to give away. Happy there will be sweet times all over the country. Thank you, Sonic and my buddy, Madison.
We've had great weather and I have been outside enjoying the lack of humidity and moderate summer temperatures. I've had two ten thousand step days in a row and it is a treat to be out and walking.
As always thanks for visiting, take good care and have a great weekend.
Please note: The coupons have been provided by Sonic, but the opinions are all mine.
