local goodness.

There is an orchard just outside of town that sells peaches in the summer and mandarins in the winter.

Ian and I took a country drive the other day and saw the sign "mandarins". We stopped and bought a 5 pound bag on the honor system. Just place your money in the coffee can and take change if necessary.

We also took some time to chat with the old woman who owns the farm. She came out of the house to remind me to try and stay dry. (It had been drizzling off and on.)

I love driving out to her place...paying for my goods in a coffee can...chatting with the very person who grew my food. It makes me feel good, like I'm doing a tiny thing to make the world a better place. It makes the clementines taste a little sweeter, too.
