That moment when you’re making lunch and you have to stop and photograph it….
You just don’t get tomatoes like this from a grocery store. I missed putting in a garden this year, so I bought these from Blum Ranch, right across the valley from us.
I was looking for another batch of peaches. Sadly, they are very small this year, and they were selling lugs for under $10.00. Good price, but not the big beauties they usually have. Not the sort of thing I usually enjoy taking everywhere I go all summer. I bought a small basket of their O Henrys.
“We need rain, huh?” I said to the family member behind the counter.
“Yes, we do,” she said, smiling apologetically. It’s going to be a long summer.
The rest of my lunch: black beans with pico de gallo salsa mixed in and steamed cherimoya squash. I like spice, but it’s also nice just to experience the veggies as they come.
My sister, Pegerty, gave us these sweet little bowls for Christmas and not a day goes by without us using at least one of them. They are the perfect size… a little over a cup.
