Seesta B ~ Acting Corny

Mais, I took Seesta B (my sister, Brenda) with me to the veggie market the other day ~ we had a great time and came home with a truckload of good locally-grown produce. After hitting a couple of vegetable stands, we went down to a famous Topeka landmark for lunch ~ BoBo's Drive-In for burgers, onion rings and root beer.

This cantalope was the *score of the day* at the veggie stand, Meier's Veggie Market. Seesta B spotted a whole bushel basket of ripe cantalope for $2 ... there must have been 10-12 large melons in dat basket, so we split it between us. When is the last time you paid one dollar for 6 large melons? The bargain of the century, and I been eatin' cantalope till it's comin' out my ears!!!!

Man that's a great score on them melons. A little cubed cantaloupe ain't bad in a stir fry....

Chez,

Speaking of chow chow, are you able to carry your tomato plants into fall to where you can get another crop of green tomatoes to make chow chow with?

That is one thing that I really like about the weather in the North Texas area. The weather is moderate enough that we are able to carry over our spring tomato plants on into December, usually, where they will produce a bursting second crop of green tomatoes, just in time for chow chow canning season. To die for!
