why I love Ohio in August



I love Ohio in August because you can pick up all sorts of yummy, home-grown fruits and veggies, literally on the side of the road. There are quite a few places around here that put up little produce stands in front of their houses at the peak of harvest season. This is one of my favorites and it's just about a mile from my house.



Nothing fancy, just an old farm table on the side of a state highway. Last night they only had cucumbers, giant zucchini, and fresh springs of basil, but I was there the other night and got the best cherry tomatoes!



They had lots and lots of cucumbers!




Nobody mans the stand. There is a coffee can sitting on the table where you pay by the honor system.



You can see, I think they're trying to get rid of all their cukes because they've marked them down to 10 cents a piece. I wish I had the time to make some pickles!

Gotta love Ohio in August!
