Land of Plenty

While on TV we see pictures of famine, here we live in the land of plenty. The markets are overflowing with fresh produce. The peaches are at their prime, sweet and juicy. New strains of strawberries ripen throughout the summer. It's that time of year when I start nesting, putting food away for the colder days. I will be making jam and ratatouille and whatever else I fancy. The market beckons.


  1. How fresh and juicy they look! Japan is a land of plenty, too, though the price of fruits would higher than yours. Nowadays, we can buy almost every fruit at stores regardless of the season, but of course fruits in season are the most delicious as well as affordable.


  2. Yes, we are enjoying fresh local produce, too - esp. cantaloupe, peaches, tomatoes, and corn. I've had some out-patient surgery (more tomorrow) and haven't spent much time on-line in the last week. I'm catching up with you.
