The strawberries are ripe and ready to go and area farms have a variety of fresh produce for sale.
Flowers and vegetable plants are also available by the wagonload.
There are many people to engage in conversation when you visit a local farm stand. I have met some wonderful folks while shopping for raw milk, berries, jam, spring veggies and pickled eggs.
I have also met some very sweet cows that guard the farm gate while......
others take an afternoon nap.
My favorite sights are antique weather vanes against a perfect blue sky.
I am lucky to live in a fertile valley of farms, food, forests and bovines.
