After a mere 15 mins of eating, we were done. Not a single piece or crust from the deep fried batter was left. We can't help but smirked at the long queue of hungry faces when we were leaving Clam Box... let them wait while we head for dessert!
This was the second time we went to Smolak Farm in North Andover, Massachusetts. The last time was a mere shortwhile ago..... last weekend. The peaches then were ripe for picking and we had so much luck of picking tree ripen peaches and so we would like to try our luck again. It was Peach Festival this week and we were not so lucky this time as the early birds have got all the best ones and I was starting to wonder if this is Karma.....it must be those people who were in the queue at the Clam Box! And so we have to settle with unripened peaches and pick as many as we needed. Peaches are fruits that taste the best when ripen and picked from the tree with its sweetness and juiciness beyond words and infact not describable and the nearest I can explain it is that it is like a ripe and sweet watermelon, where the juice drips with every bite and the sweetness keeps coming till you finish up to the pit part! There were plum trees and nectarines too and heirloom tomatoes fields. Couldn't resist the ice cream stand and continued with my cholesterol and calories intake with a vanilla cherry cup while browsing in its small but lovely country store. It was a hot day and the kids were simply done for this season. We will be back next year.
