We arrived at the farm stand in the early evening. As we carefully considered our choices (who can choose among the bounty?), we paused to chat with the farmer and his wife. We talked tractors and new grandbabies and pinched nerves. The farmer is our brother-in-law; the wife is Ron's sister.
Between snippets of conversation, we gathered Indian corn, Cinderella pumpkins, and Mexican hat pumpkins and put them in the wagon. More chatting, and then some butternut squash. More talk, more gourds. Ron and the farmer discussed sweet potatoes. The farmer walked over to his plants, crouched down and dug up a few, and handed them to Ron. Bekah chose some Baby Boos for her room and some for Kati who was at work.
The shadows lengthened, we gathered our selections, and headed home for an easy supper of leftover sloppy joes.
