Luckily, we have a neighbor who works in Virginia, MN, which is about 100 miles from her aunt. Bless his heart, he is willing to take the cabbages (all 20 of them) to Minnesota. Hurray, the connections are made!
Yesterday, was a beautiful day for a ride to the produce stand.
We did stop at another produce stand that we have never dealt with before. Their cabbages were small and had worm holes in them and they wanted $.30 a pound. That was very pricy compared to what we could get them for farther south.
It was such pretty ride, as the leaves are starting to peak. When we arrived at the market, there was so much to look at.
|Pumpkins all lined up - sorted according to size|
|Rows and rows of hearty mums|
|Gourds in many shapes and sizes|
|Hubby's favorite, Hybrid kolarabi|
|Huge jumbo squash|
Other than the produce that is sold by the pound, its all on the 'honor system'. We loaded the truck with the cabbages, and bags of onions before we went into the small store to weigh up the produce sold by the pound, and pay for it all.
Inside the store is delightful, the shelves were stocked with canned fruits and vegetables.
With the truck loaded, we headed back home. Along the way we stopped at a wayside along the Wolf River. It is such a pretty place... see for yourself:
And that's the way it is...........................
