Blenheim apricots, Santa Rosa plums @ Live Oak Farm, Grand Lake Farmer's Market

First sighting of these for me this year - the Blenheim apricots are teeny, some no bigger than marbles. They taste good, but stone fruits are so good this year I can't say they taste significantly better than other apricots. Or maybe the ones I had were a bit underripe. I'll give them a few days. The Santa Rosa plums are excellent - sweet, super juicy (as in eat over the sink juicy), flavorful. Both are $3/lb.

Also - the zucchini guys (forgot the name of the farm... they don't sell just zucchini, but they have more zucchini varieties than anyone else - they're near the orchid sellers) are selling zucchini blossoms this year! Male blossoms only, but super cheap (I bought 12 for a dollar today).
