‘Member I’ve spoken of the farmers stand being rebuilt just outside the village limits? Well, it hasn’t been opened yet. The activity seems to have died away. All that money into that old building and nothing.

Still there is time.

I did bother to find a farmers market that is actually advertising for customers, however. It found me, really. Here, let me show you.

Special to the Courier winfieldcourier.com

Be sure to enjoy the fresh locally grown vegetables in abundance at Walnut Valley Farmers’ Market. 

It is mid-summer, and tomatoes and squash are in great supplies. 

The roasting ears have been scrumptious. Some corn might still be available, and okra should be picking up at market.

Fruits such as peaches and blackberries are becoming available, and one will find beautiful plump eggplants along with pickling and slicing cucumbers; yellow, white and green summer squash; onions; beets and garlic. 

Freshly cut herbs will be found, as well as fresh, colorful garden flower bouquets that will last a week with fresh water every other day. 

Watermelon may be the next new produce to make an entry to the market tables. They need the sunny days!  

Cantaloupe will follow.

Of course, I’ll drive down there (a long way, down there) about cantaloupe time and gather up some.

About tenwhiskey

User tenwhiskey is also the author of this blog. He currently lives in small town Kansas in a semi-retired condition. His kids are married and gone (thank you). An empty nester. Divorced. Very happy with life as it is. Ten Mile maintains a personal blog here, writing of events as they appear to him; commentary, and opinions abound. He deviates into fiction as the mood strikes and creates flash fiction stories and short stories. He will not warn the reader when he drifts from fact to fiction. He feels adults are, generally, smart enough to figure out which is which. He does, however, attempt to make his fiction sound as true to life as possible. You have been warned. He, as time permits, writes and occasionally sells writing. More often than not he gives it away to various non-paying publishers of Ether Magazines, forums or for entertainment on a wall for in need of a hand friends. He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.
