The Unwritten Rule of Summer

It's the unwritten rule of summer: when it's warm and you're driving under a sky filled with lazy, puffy clouds, you must pull over at the country roadside stands. You must.

 
Especially when they sell strawberries you can pick yourself. And peaches they just picked themselves.


And especially when they have red new potatoes, still dusty from the soil. And jams they canned right there. And cold, bottled fizzy drinks from yesteryear. Then you really must stop. It's the rule.



If you're ever in Pittsburg, Texas, stop at Efurd Orchards. And when they offer you a free peach still warm from the tree, think of me.

This makes me want to take a long drive this weekend through a small town and find an old-time general store to browse. Thanks for the inspiration, Brin!

Yes! The only thing I would add is, if you come across a fire department or scout group selling BBQ chicken halves, you must stop and support them and enjoy some of the best chicken around.
