Late Fall Vegetables and Fruits

On the way to watch birds at Watkins Lake yesterday (see this post) we stopped at a wonderful farm stand on Sharon Hollow Road. The season for most summer produce is ending, and I was surprised to find quite a few exquisite fruits and vegetables. At dinner last night we ate the eggplant that I bought. I regretted not buying more of everything!

Amazed to find just a few peaches, which came from Grand Rapids as our side of the state was peachless this year.

Honey Crisp apples were only $1.29 a pound.
Very late tomatoes.
Small sweet peppers -- the ones I broiled were just delicious with the eggplant last night.

Oh you lucky "gal" The Amish farmstand down the block has been surprising me with goodies for the past couple of weeks. She is closing soon but has eggplant and still a few tomatoes. I sure wish I would have grown more eggplant but before they are gone, I'd better go buy us some more!!! Eggplant and Roasted Peppers, oh goodness:)

Thank you so much for sharing, Mae...
