memorial day, corn and pepper picking

Hey Gang,
YES Malinda and I will be holding a Memorial Day picnic. Place will probably be in the metro parks. Stay tuned.

Today I went shopping at Save A Lot. It should be called Save A Little as even groceries in this store are starting to get expensive. At one time the store in Euclid had a nice meat department. Over time it has gotten smaller because of the cost of meats. 4 burger patties now a buck a piece at a cheap discount store.

But that's not what I wanted to write about. I was checking out and the male cashier maybe early 20's mumbled something. I thought he asked the price of the ears of corn I had. So I told him 3 for a dollar. He looked puzzled and then said in a manner a little more understandable what are dese? Corn. He still looked lost so he asked another cashier. The other cashier said just type in 512 it should come up. Is this what it has come to in America? A person doesn't even know what corn looks like?

Friends who live close by and who are planning on planting a garden. In about 10 days I will be going back to a farm right here in Kirkland. I never noticed it before. Gee its only been there for 55 years. I was at other nursery's looking for vegetables to plant. Most of the places look like their stock comes from some corporate farm and the prices reflect it, expensive. Some tomato plants are now at $3.50 each. Well when I stumbled upon this place I lit up and felt so good. The man had an accent that reminded me of years ago. Rural and almost sounding southern. Its getting harder and harder to find the old time farmer up north. This farm has quite a variety priced right. I bought 9 tomato plants, 3 pepper plants and one flower for $8.50.

He asked if I liked hot peppers. I replied yes that's why I got the hot banana peppers. He replied them ain't hot. He gave me a paper that listed his hot peppers. The paper is titled Welcome to NE Ohio's Hottest Garden. There are almost 200 kinds. Names like Moruga Red, Scotch Bonnet, Scorpion Trinidad.

Anyone want to join me in about 10 days? Heading back there to get the rest of my garden.

Gotta GoGo!!
