On Saturday, my mother-in-law and I took a trip to Easton to Candee Farm to pick fresh fruit and vegetables.
It was like being a kid again. There was no need for fashionable clothes or perfectly coiffed hair. Just a Micky Mouse t-shirt, shorts and for the accessory "des jour" a bucket tied around my neck. (I was picking raspberries.)
My mother-in-law and I picked (and nibbled). I was hoping that I did not have any evidence on my face from all the fun I was having! (I am glad they do not weigh people before they start picking, I would have been charged for an extra pound or two when I checked out!)
I am in heaven eating fresh, delicious tomatos, peppers and cucumbers. I am trying to get a healthy mind set again (see previous writings about my adoration of nachos). ...more later on the elliptical machine I purchased to compliment the vegetables.
I recommend a day of picking vegetables, fresh air and plain old fashion fun! This "Candee" is good for you!
