Summer Fruit

I love summer. It might nudge its way to the top of my favorite seasons list just because of the fruit. Sorry, Spring!

The stands at the DC farmer's markets are overflowing with fruit. Cherries, sour cherries, peaches, apricots, gooseberries, currents, and the best blueberries I've ever had. Hands down. And I don't even like blueberries that much -- I never buy them fresh, just frozen for the smoothies. This week, I bought 2 paper-container full (Nate says it's about a pint).

And guess what's coming in August? WATERMELON. I really can't wait. Watermelon with seeds ( none of that pansy seedless stuff). I'm talking real deal.

I could probably eat an entire watermelon in one sitting. 

Also, isn't this plate super cute?

It was my plate when I was a baby, and it was my mom's plate when she was a baby. Family heirloom, real backwoods aristocrats style.
