so in love with the willamette valley

Didn’t plan to post today, since I’m working on the cranberry post and my next column for the Eugene Weekly, but I can’t resist.  I love living here so much.

Cracked-shell bags of filberts (local speak for hazelnuts) and walnuts, bedecked by pumpkins, Indian corn, and canned peaches from Detering’s Orchards.

The U-Select area of the apple offerings at Detering’s.  The signs note whether they are sweet, tart, crisp, good keepers, good for pies/sauces, etc.  U can also buy them by the lug or pick-ur-own.  They also have fresh cider and samples of hot cider on hand while you mull over your purchases.  Could we be luckier?
