Farm Blessings


I didn't take a picture of what we bought at the local farmer's market on Saturday, but since then we've acquired this nice array of homegrown wonders!  We spent more time today looking at property and on the way home passed thru a neighboring small town and remembered their farmer's market is Mondays 3-7.  We almost didn't stop, but I'm glad we did.  We got the 4 varieties of cucumbers, nectarines, grapes, apples (just a couple, we still have gobs from friends) pears and plums on the vine-aren't they pretty?  The tomatoes and onions in the box came from another friend at church, and the eggs are ours-just thought they added to the photo.

I'm trying to remember something I read recently about not refrigerating certain types of produce because it dulls the flavor.  Citrus was on the list and it seems like tomatoes were too, but I can't recall.  Anyone else ever hear that?
