It won’t be long before Duffield’s will have homegrown rhubarb and asparagus for sale in their farm market. Love both. Strawberries will probably be early this year — I can hardly wait.

I took this photo last summer at the height of the season. The man in the left foreground is bagging fresh corn, warm from the fields. Duffield’s is famous for their Silverqueen corn, sweet white corn that melts in your mouth.

And Jersey tomatoes are the biggest and best. They usually come out around July 4. And Jersey peaches. I like my peaches dripping sweet juice all over my chin and Duffield’s grows good ones.

And the bakery. Gotta get to Duffield’s soon.

Livvy (on the left) struck a great pose for this picture. Maddy hung back just a little.

Here’s Maddy in her car seat. Livvy was zonked out in her seat.

Here’s another shot of Maddy. I used one of my 50mm lenses, my favorite for making portraits of kids. Get in close and wait for the right moment. The film, Freestyle Arista Premium 400, is made for Freestyle by Kodak (it’s really Tri-X).

This is a photo taken along Break Back Run, a tributary of the Mantua Creek and the first photo I took in Wenonah. I was on the north side of the main drag and the bridge over Mantua Creek. Even though Mantua Creek flowed under the road, the trail didn’t. Access points for the main parts of the trail are on the south end of Wenonah. I returned the following week and began my exploration, then a few days later I bought a copy of the Wenonah Trail Guide at the town office so now I have a map and a much better idea of where the access points are located.

We had a lovely family gathering and dinner at our home on Easter Sunday. I got all the girls together and had them pose for photos outside in front of our house after dinner.
