I'm playing the Grand Lake Farmers' Market in Oakland tomorrow morning (Sat 6/28/08, 9:30am to 1:30pm) - one of the sweetest gigs on earth.
New Buffalo MI, Nelson Ledges OH, and Pittsburgh next weekend. And lots more shows this summer. Details on the gigs page. Come hear!
I'll try to get it together and stop by. And of course check out the produce. Is it apricot season yet?
it is here
Cherries just finishing

the plums down the street are almost done, and the ones in my back yard are about two weeks from being ripe.
we used to raid back yard plum trees, and neighbor next door had a pear tree, i would get on our garage roof and gorge, not that this has anything to do with David!.... unless he has such trees in his backyard?
We have two lemon trees that have ripe fruit every single day of the year. It's a wonderful thing! And a fig tree that yields a nice crop around late August.
My wife is the produce expert in the family, but it seems to me we're right in the heart of stone fruit season. peaches, apricots; nectarines and pluots and other cool hybrids.
