It’s autumn in Ontario … which means the farmer’s markets are brimming with produce! For people like me who love vegetables, this is the best time of year.
Today’s outing was planned to take advantage of this bounty, so in spite of the heavy, grey skies and the forecast for rain, my good friend, Helen, and I headed out of the city. My target destination was a farm with an apple orchard about an hour from Toronto.
The orchard had just opened for business when we arrived at 9 am, and with the farm completely to ourselves, we set off into the fields in search of my favourite eating apple – the Honeycrisp.
In one short hour, we managed to fill up on apples, squash, corn, potatoes, tomatoes, and brussel sprouts. Yes – I love brussel sprouts. What’s not to like? … they’re so cute.
The rain threatened but never materialized. In all, a great outing.
This was my world between 9 am and 10 am this morning. For more of the One Day One World Project, visit Lisa at Northwest Frame of Mind.
