Abundance

The summer season has always been the most awaited time of the year, well yeah I guess everybody does! It's the time when you let all those swimwear, flip flops, summer hats out of the closet. The flower blooms abundantly in different colors and sizes. And tropical fruits are often seen everywhere, in their freshness and luscious colors.

These were just some of the harvests I saw in a farmer's market last summer and I can't help but
take pictures of them. In the picture are dried and smoked fish sold packed by the dozens or you can buy them by the kilo. Sweet potatoes which I always cooked with brown sugar. Peanuts, green mango and cherry tomatoes are at it's peak season.


Ripe mangoes are very abundant and cheap during the summer. There's always bananas available all year round.
Crunchy green mangoes which we usually eat with sauteed shrimp paste or made into salad is one of our favorite appetizers, jackfruits are usually cooked with white sugar or cooked in coconut milk.


Before we hit the road back to the city, we passed by a vendor selling orchids along the road and they sell it in cheap prices. I  miss summer and I guess I have to wait for the rainy season to end and prepare for another road trip this coming dry season. Thank you for dropping by!
