The last of summer is upon us, and you know I’m ready for fall. But I saw the most beautiful okra at the Farmer’s Market a few weekends ago. It was pretty early in the morning and we were still planning on walking around a bit so I marveled at their green beauty and said I would come back later.
Florida isn’t the deep south, but the town I grew up was without a doubt country. When I say country, I mean “cuuun-tree”, you’ve gotta hold the vowels. Well, my mom was raised in Alabama so I guess that makes me half-southern.
