It's the middle of fruit and veggie season! We drove on from Meaford to Thornbury and stopped at Goldsmith's Orchard Market. It's fast becoming a favourite of ours, and will only be a ten minute drive from the new house.
The first Ontario field tomatoes were available, finally. We have had lots of hothouse tomatoes, but always think the taste of real field tomatoes is better.
There were Niagara peaches, to my mind the best fruit of the year.
And the first apples of the season were available. That really marks the beginning of fall here, and there will be a dozen varieties ripening and coming into the markets over the next three months. Thornbury and Meaford are the biggest apple producing area in Ontario, so we have lots of choice!
There were beautiful bundles of bright sunflowers for sale.
We did stop down at the harbour briefly, at least to drive around. It's a popular place for fishermen. This view looks east across the mouth of the Beaver River toward the 'Blue Mountain'.
And this looks back west toward Meaford. A beautiful day!
