Hallowe'en is almost upon us, but Autumn has barely begun to tiptoe in. It seems later than usual - some blame global climate change-and it is a bit tentative, but it sneaks in here and there.
A lot of South Jersey is still farmland: not "country acres held for city gentlepersons " - but actual working farm land.
Crops are being gathered and readied for market ...
Some of this fresh-harvested produce will find its way to roadside stands - like the very popular Rosie's in Mullica Hill.
South Jersey has no shortage of roadside produce stands : many of which sell food the owners themselves have grown - plus enough jams, jellies, bread, rolls,pickles, locally bottled wines,real creamery butter, etc. to save the roadside shopper a trip into town.
I have to admit to coming home with a bag of local goodies...
Doing my "walk-arounds" in the Autumn is always rewarding !
