Aren't these just about the choicest looking Tomatoes you've ever seen. Taste pretty good too. The tomatoes are Kevin's and the bread is Casandra's. Both form the Saturday market. What an absolutely crazy time of year. Such an abundance of everything. Well, and the weather has held for us. A guy is able to look after so many of the fall projects. We are so lucky to be living here in Creston.
Stop in and check out our newest fruit stand here in Creston. It's across from the Erickson school. In just a few years Barb and Frank have done the most incredible job of turning raw land into a productive market. The fact is they're seasoned hands and does it ever show. Great corn, loads of melons, peppers, garlic, apples and a mountain of pumpkins. Oh, and the best deal on their lovely little bouquet of flowers for just $2.00. A deal at twice the price.
"To reclaim this much control over one's food, to take back from industry and science, is no small thing; indeed, in our time cooking from scratch and growing any of your own food qualify as a subversive acts." I'm lucky to be living with one of these subversive types but the Kootenay's is full of them. Loads of good food. Oh, the quote is from Michael Pollan's book In Defense of Food. That's quite good as well.
Tim's Fish and Chips was new to Creston this spring. Oh, it is so good to see a fun-funky-interesting-independent restaurant open up. We have a good number of independents but of late we've also been hit with the foul little franchise places. "Rickies" Can you believe it. But enuff. Tim's is doing great. He has a little patio in the shade and get this, he also sells icecream. He's really worked hard this last summer. Stop in for a bowl of chowder.
