I love this time of year when all the fresh-picked produce starts filling up the farmer's market stands. This one is at Rocky Ford, about 20 miles from our house. The Arkansas valley is famous for its Rocky Ford Cantaloupe. I'm not personally a cantaloupe person, but my husband loves it. To each its own I suppose.
Here's the truck fresh off the fields. I had to wait to take this pic until the gentleman pulled his shirt down. Didn't want any cracks showing!
I thought this was a neat pic of the boy watching his daddy. Wonder if he's thinking, "When I grow up I want to be just like you"?
We had them roast a bushel of Anaheim chilies so we could take another little piece of Colorado to my brother. I went back today for my bushel. Now I have a year's worth up in the freezer. Green chili, chili rellanos, chilies for nachos and enchiladas. Yummy comfort food!
