Summer Goods

7.24.2011

Last Sunday Mr. Savvy and I took a forty five minute drive towards the North Ga. mountains to shop at a farmer's market. I was wanting some peaches and they grow them there. They also carry all other kinds of produce amongst other things.


The weather last Sunday was hot, but the humidity was low as you can see by the blue sky.



There were lots and lots of peaches. I was walking around taking pictures and got some strange looks from folks. Doesn't everyone take pictures at the farmer's market?

I had one lady ask me why I was taking pictures. She said do they have a newsletter? I told her I was taking them for my blog. Mr. Savvy said she probably didn't have a clue what a blog is.









This is a barn they have on the property that you can rent. This was probably a family reunion. The car tags were from all over.


These are the peaches we brought home. A whole peck. I was going to get a smaller amount since they can spoil so quickly, but no, Mr. Savvy said buy the whole peck.

I have been eating peaches all week. I have had them sliced on my cereal and I have eaten them plain. I have mixed them in my yogurt and I have made two small cobblers. I love peaches, but I think I have had my fill for a while.

We also brought home squash, sweet silver queen corn, sweet potatoes, okra, and tomatoes.

We have been eating lots of fresh veggies this week. Next year I hope to have a small garden if I can get you know who to help.

Oh, yea, and we bought this, too. So good.

I will miss all the good fruits and vegetables of summer especially peaches, but I won't
miss the heat.

Enjoy your day

  4. We have been on the peachie binge too~!

    My friend bought me a huge bag of fresh peaches and we ate them gor a week on just about eveything. The best thing I did with it was to make sorbet.

    I have had an electric ice cream maker for 5 or 6 years now and we used it a LOT at first -- to make ice cream. It is so good and SO fattening, I put that contraption away --- five pounds later --- and never used it again!

    This summer we pulled it out again but are using it in a healthier manner.... peach, lemon, watermelon and strawberry sorbets.

    A little bit healthier way to go...?

    Such a scenic country market.
    Great pics Kim!

  6. Our Calhoun County peach guy was back again Thursday and we picked up another peck. YUM!

    There is a wonderful farmers mkt, just across the Mississippi River, only about 20 miles from us, but with road reconstrucion and floods, the ferries have been closed, so the drive has turned into one of about an hour and a half. Still want to make that run and may do it this week. The market is actually a large farmstand, at the farm where the produce is grown. All kinds of goodies other than fresh produce...including quilts and such.

  7. Next time you go to Jaemore, you have to try a fried apple pie. Yummy! And if they sell Nora Mill grits there, I highly recommend them. Nora Mill grits are the best "Georgia ice cream" ever.

    Hugs and blessings,

  8. Those peaches look wonderful Kim. At least they let you continue to take pictures. One time a while back Mike and I were at a Market and they said I COULD not take pictures...I was bummed. Stay cool, it's another hot one here in the South.

  20. Oh how I miss them Ga peaches! I remember my mama bringing them home all the time from some place in SC. They never lasted very long. I wish we had a farmers market here. We had one in Baton Rouge that the boys and i Muse to venture to every now and then. Thanx for taking us along and that is too funny the lady wondering what you were doing.

  22. I went to Jaemor this week too, Kim! I bought the $7.00 bucket, because I wanted that cute bucket to put my compost in before it makes it to the compost pile!! They were to die for though, weren't they?! I made a cobbler and then made a peach trifle, which is wonderful!! One day, I'm going to run into you, we shop and in the same stompin' ground :). Stay cool.

  23. Kim, Great trip to Jaemor. Gosh, I haven't been there in a couple of years. The peaches look great and so do the other veggies. Did you fry the okra?
    Have a great Sunday,

  27. I live about 20 minutes North of Jaemor and pass it twice a day going to and from work. I stop at least twice a week. We've really enjoyed the peaches this year too. They are so sweet. Don't know what we would do with Jaemor! Love to go there year round. Fall is a great time to visit too!

    Have a great week!

  30. Kim, We would always stop at this same market when coming back to Atlanta from visiting family. They always had the best fresh peas. We would buy them already shelled and frozen. I have peaches too and I was thinking of a making smoothies.
