One of my favorite places to go in our town is a local produce stand that, luckily, is now open year round. It sits on a corner and occupies a space that used to be a filling station. I have enjoyed watching this small business grown over the last few years. I love the fact that I can go purchase wonderful, fresh, local produce for next to nothing when compared to super market prices! Today, I got to witness one of the farmers coming in to try and sell his produce to Mr. Ramsey, the proprietor. The farmer had a crate of really pretty tomatoes that he was trying to sell. Mr. Ramsey gave them a VERY thorough once over before purchasing the crate’s contents. It was an interesting deal to watch as I was paying for my loot. I think both men wanted to make sure the other one knew what a “good deal” they were getting. I’m almost certain they thought I was eaves-dropping, but I really couldn’t help it!
