Oh what a difference a zip code makes! (or three)! Brilliant clean barnyard, beautiful old wood full of holes for the wind to rustle through, paint peeling, roof rusting, but still hard and dry and comfy and warm for everyone. Straw and rain and mud outside can’t stop this conflagration of pie cherry soup, crushed granite and Caltrans mowing. Spicy JUST to the point of hot, watery and fresh quells all those notions, and Everlasting Gobstopper is the fruit du jour.
