Farm Fresh Fridays- two days, two trips, too much food!

PHOTOS MISSING, WILL BE REPLACED SOON. THANKS FOR UNDERSTANDING.

WENT BACK TO HARROW TODAY TO SEE IF THEY HAD MORE RASPBERRY/PEACH JAM, THEY DIDN’T. I GUESS I NEED TO LEARN HOW TO MAKE IT FOR MINI-ME WHO LOVES IT
BY THE AG BUILDING IN HARROW. YOU CAN SORT OF MAKE OUT THE SIGN


AG BUILDING, BAD SHOT BUT THAT’S IT. I PICTURE IT AS SOME SORT OF SECRET SERVICE, MISSION IMPOSSIBLE TYPE TRAINING FOR COWS AND PIGS. I THINK I HAVE AN OVER-ACTIVE IMAGINATION
SHOCKER, CORN FIELDS IN ESSEX COUNTY. LOL


WE GOT REALLY LOST SO I TOOK A CHANCE AND TURNED DOWN THIS LITTLE BACK ROAD


CORN ON ONE SIDE


CORN ON THE OTHER SIDE


I  HAD CHILDREN OF THE CORN RUNNING THROUGH MY HEAD. TOLD MINI-ME TO LOCK HER DOOR AND NO MATTER WHAT DO NOT MAKE ANY EYE CONTACT IF YOU SEE SMALL KIDS


WE THOUGHT THE CHILDREN OF THE CORN SCENARIO WAS DONE UNTIL WE TURNED DOWN THE NEXT BACK ROAD. APPARENTLY THEY ARE JUST WINDING US THROUGH THE CORN MAZE BEFORE THEY GRAB US
SAFETY AT LAST. IN THE BIG TOWN OF MCGREGOR. THIS IS THE TOWN WHERE HORSEY IS BOARDED
I TRIED TO GET A SHOT OF THESE COOL LITTLE CARS FOR YOU FOLKS


BUT THIS BUTTMUNCH CUT ME OFF


THE SONG “MEMORIES” PLAYS IN MY HEAD AS WE PASS HOMESENSE. ONCE UPON A TIME WHEN HUBS WAS WORKING THIS WAS MY FAVE STORE TO HANG OUT IN. I HAVE NOT BEEN INSIDE IN OVER 2 YEARS *TEAR*


OKAY WHEN I TOLD YOU GUYS WE HAVE STANDS EVERYWHERE I WAS NOT KIDDING. THIS IS ON A MAIN  INTERSECTION IN THE CITY


YUP, THIS IS WHAT LIVING NEAR FARM COUNTRY MEANS. THEY BRING IT IN TO SELL IT TO THE CITY FOLK


MY FATHER IS LAW WORKS HERE, TOTALLY RANDOM BUT WE PASSED BY SO I TOOK A PIC OF IT FOR YA


EVERYONE’S FAVE STAND, LAFFERTY’S- IT’S BY THE AIRPORT ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD


TOOK MINI-ME OUT FOR FISH N CHIPS. DOES THIS NOT LOOK FANCY? LOL, BUT IT IS HONESTLY THE BEST FISH AROUND


MY BEAST


I RAVE ABOUT THIS PLACE TO EVERYONE INCLUDING MINI-ME. TAKE HER TODAY AND IT WAS NOT UP TO PAR. NOT SURE WHY. BUT THE FISH WAS GREASY AND THE FRIES HAD TO BE SENT BACK AS THEY WERE WAY UNDERCOOKED. GOT A SECOND BATCH AND THEY WERE STILL ICKY. FELT BAD AS I HAVE BEEN TELLING MINI-ME ABOUT HOW GOOD THIS PLACE IS FOR EONS. THEY MUST HAVE HAD AN OFF DAY


DRIVING HOME, MORE STANDS. WE ONLY STOPPED AT TWO. BUT THERE ARE ABOUT 100 ON THE WAY. 


VIEW OF THE 401


MORE FARM STANDS


MORE FARM STANDS
THIS IS STUFF I SCORED AT REMARK FARMS YESTERDAY. WE WENT IN THINKING WE WOULD NOT HIT THE FARM STANDS THIS WEEK AS SCOTT WAS HERE. BUT WE ENDED UP HITTING THEM ANYWAY TODAY
REMARK SCORE
REMARK SAUCY SCORE
MINI-ME PICKED THIS
I PICKED THIS
MINI-ME PRACTICALLY KNOCKED DOWN AN OLD LADY TO GET THIS. I THINK SHE MAY HAVE “SQUEE’D” AND THIS KIDS DOES NOT SQUEE….EVER
REMARK BREAD SCORES=MARBLE RYE, CHEESE BREAD AND ARTISAN
BEAUTY RIGHT. MAKES ME THINK OF THE SEINFELD EPISODE WHERE JERRY STEALS IT FROM THE OLD LADY. NOT THAT I DID THAT. I WOULD NEVER DO THAT. THAT’S WHAT I BRING MINI-ME FOR
HUBS FAVE BREAD, HE LOVES THIS STUFF
MINI-ME’S FAVE BREAD, SHE EATS IT BY THE TRUCKLOAD. B EATS ANYTHING. AND EVERYTHING. HE’S 23, WE MAY AS WELL JUST BACK THE GROCERY TRUCK RIGHT UP TO HIS ROOM
NOM NOM NOM
FARM STAND SCORE, LOOK AT THOSE ONIONS. A THING OF BEAUTY. 
OKAY SO DO YOU THINK I HAVE ENOUGH FOOD???
THEN I REALIZE I STILL HAVE TONS OF STUFF FROM LAST WEEK LEFT
SERIOUSLY, WHAT’S WRONG WITH ME???
WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MIND NEEDS THIS MUCH FOOD???

Toodles and smoochies! xx

    @Dzoli-Got lots of goodies.I think she might be dutch. I've never asked her. Have to pop back this week as I ordered some special jam. lol

    @Mia- Thanks!

    @Peggy- Thanks and you are very welcome!

    @Cassie- SO good. The marble rye was the bomb!

    @Claudia- I went a little cuckoo this week. SO much food. Now need to cook up a storm with it all.

    @Anne- We made out like bandits. Bread was really good. It is flat but pretty here.

    @Ann- The corn things is hilarious. It's just what you see here. Corn or soybeans or tomatoes. Bread was killer. They make good bread there.
