A moody sky completes this coastal agricultural scene in Orient on Long Island.  We bought some fresh veggies from the Latham Farmstand and are enjoying some corn and tomatoes!

The Portsmouth Farmer's Market

The Portsmouth Farmer’s Market is a great destination on a hot Saturday morning in the heart of the summer season.  We visited and strolled around, picking some great veggies for a Sunday BBQ out on the grill (a very hot one…)…had some great lemonade and tried some delicious maple syrup from Sugarmomma’s Maple Farm.  I’d never heard of a hot maple syrup, nevermind actually tasting one, so when I had the chance to sample – I was pleasantly surprised and even used it as a marinade on some chicken for the bbq.  Delicious indeed.

I love this shot of all the rich wood colors and the natural goodness of the veggies….and I’m happy we took the time out of a busy Saturday to stop over.
