price at the peak

We recently took a short family vacation to eastern Washington where the sun shines bright, the thermometers approach scorching and the orchards are overloaded with apricots, cherries and peaches.

On our way out of town at the end of our road trip, we hit up an organic fruit stand that has become one of my favorite stops on this annual trip.  The “Rest Awhile” has been organic for years, but their certification just came through this past winter and now they are “certified organic”.  Well, the Ferry family loaded up and took home as much produce as our jampacked car could hold.

Reason # 216 to buy produce at the peak of its season: 16 pounds of certified organic apricots for $18.  And, my oh my – were they ever delicious…
