Fresh-grown tomatoes...


I've been dreaming of tomato sandwiches... just a few slices of fresh tomato with mayo, salt and pepper on two slices of bread.
Yummy!
The only problem is you can't have a tomato sandwich using anything bought out of the grocery store. I don't care how fancy or expensive those tomatoes are they will never hold up on a sandwich by themselves.
So after missing out on two roadside vegetable stands yesterday during our trip to Harrisonburg, I drove eight miles out of my way this afternoon to shop at the little roadside stand between Ruckersville and Madison.
I bought tomatoes, onions, cucumbers and peaches... the lady told me most everything she sells is grown from her garden.
I asked her how long her roadside stand would be open this year because I was sure that I would return for more produce... and after eating my wonderfully fresh tomato sandwich a few minutes ago, I'm already planning my next trip!

Tomato sandwiches are one of my favorites! Home-grown ones are always the best. Simply delicious.

I'm so hungry now. Just thinking of fresh veggies. I could really go for some okra...

Roadside stands are always the best to get veggies, they are always cheaper and better tasting then whatever you get in the store! I didn't realize until we were older how much of a blessing having Tater Town was to us growing up! We took fresh fruit and veggies for granted! LOL
