How more locally grown can you get? Turning the corner at our street after school, we saw some people with a fruit stand in the vacant piece of land there. We drove on by, went home then walked outside in our backyard down our stairs to them. Nicely located, huh!
They had avocados (not ripe at all), tangerines and lemons. They had made juice from some (juicing) tangerines that was just out of this world! Beautiful vibrant color and perfectly flavored. We bought 10 tangerines for $1.
I spoke to them a little asking if they grew them and they did. I mentioned that our orange tree was not quite ready, they were still a little sour, and they said theirs was too. I found out that they live right down the road from us! (Now I must find that avocado tree! hahaha)
Boy those tangerines were good, a few had seeds though. I love how easy they are to peel, and the kids enjoyed them.
Local tangerines, from down the road! Even our Farmer's Market here isn't that local. =)
