Today we went to The Farmer’s Daughter Produce farm in Brentwood, which is about 60 miles east of SF. Brentwood has lots of farms with u-pick and picked fruits & vegetables for sale. I’ve gone there just about every summer for the past ten years, but obviously wasn’t able to go recently. It was great being able to make the trip.

Right now it’s prime stone fruit season, so we went in search of nectarines, apricots and peaches.  There is nothing better than ripe fruit picked right off the tree.  The weather was beautiful in SF when we left, but it was downright hot once we got inland.  It was great being able to go on a weekday. The farms weren’t crazy crowded, and besides a little bit of congestion in the Caldecott Tunnel, we weren’t in any major traffic. One of the perks of living in the city is that you’re nearly always counter-commute when venturing out.
