Shout out to Perkins Orchard - A Deep Rooted Family Roadside Farm Stand. Look at them NOW!

When I first started buying fresh produce from this roadside orchard, there were still fruit bearing trees. Late summer, I would call, Rev. Dr. Joseph Perkin’s grandson Alex, to ask if the figs were ripe as it was a race between me and the birds.

The Reverend and his wife began this business almost 50 years ago…and now, Alex is the owner…Here are some photos from earlier times and, my just picked garden flower bundles that I want Alex to include in his vast repertoire...Or, you can come to my house for flowers, Ancient Mediterranean Seasoning and what else I have conjured up this week!

Mr. Perkins Grandson Donovan Alexander Watson took over daily operations at the age of 10!
