Ain’t Life funny?

August 23, 2010

So, when I go home to E. Texas on weekends, it’s too late to go to the produce stands for the good stuff. Most Saturdays, it’s all picked over so it’s been a slim summer for fresh things for us. The grocery stores in Jacksonville and surrounding areas won’t carry the local produce. That’s crazy. I’ve gotten some good watermelons and a few good canteloupe in road side stands though. One day, not too long ago, I was driving downtown in the city and lo and behold there was a small produce stand with a huge sign declaring that they had Noonday onions and Jacksonville tomatoes. Hot dog! Of course I stopped and they were the real McCoy. So, here I am in the city buying stuff from home and it’s all good. It’s just funny to be so far from home and get a taste of home all the same.
