Produce shopping yesterday at the Untiedt Stand in Long Lake.
Jason and I selected a half-dozen ears of corn ($4.00), freshly picked raspberries @ $6.00 per pint, a "black diamond" water melon -- "it's so rich in color and taste you're not going to believe it" -- was the sales pitch.
And then, as pretense for capturing a quick foto for the Poppy Blog, we asked to see a pair of locally grown, organic, heirloom tomatoes right off the place.
Our new BFF counter person was a persuasive pitch-person. Sharp-tongued, too, so of course we had some fun chatting it up.
While J and I failed to ask the lady's name we did learn that she'd received a text earlier in the day from one of her daughters with the following acerbic message: "Looks like the Hell Train is Running Again."
Hell Train must refer to the Mom ... but why and what and huh?? More on this in a later post.
