The Tomato Place

I will make a u-turn in the road for a roadside fruit stand  ... and "The Tomato Place" did not disappoint.  Jeff is working in Vicksburg, MS, and I motored down last Friday and spent the weekend with him there.  


this little place was listed in the local newspaper as a site to see - fresh produce, boiled peanuts, fresh lemonade, and fresh fruit smoothies.  We got a strawberry/banana smoothie that was so delicious


it was warm and sunny outside and bright and cheery inside


a wall of homemade marmalade


I wondered if these pecans were left over from the fall harvest?


peanut butter and banana anyone?  Occasionally they have live music - and you can eat a simple lunch or "get a bite to eat" as so often said in the south 


a shout out to my Ole Miss buddies
I think this is a Martin birdhouse.  One of those you would put on a pole up high in the air


it starts getting good for me when the funky and unexpected is just hanging around 


it was a cozy little place that had a radio playing in the back and was certainly worth the short ride over from our hotel ...  next time I want to eat a tomato sandwich, and corn on the cob.
