On Your Honor
One of the farms on Swan Road has a little market stand at the end of their driveway each year. First come the zucchini, a few cucumbers, some beets and green beans - and finally the sweet corn and tomatoes. We still have a little ways to go before the corn is ready (see the sign.)
It's always the best, very crisp, sweet and juicy - eaten the day it's picked. Now that's fresh!
The stand is unattended. Trusting Midwest souls that they are, the money bucket is left out to collect payment, "on your honor." And I don't think they would continue doing this year after year if there were any problems.
