Picking the perfect produce

faces_farmers1.jpg

If you don't stop at Homer's Produce stand (above) on Harrison Road, you still get a smile and a wave. Homer Solesbee, soon to be a Thomson resident, had watermelon, butterbeans and squash along with other vegetables on display. He also had a good attitude on display. "If they don't buy, that's fine. I'm still going to be friendly," he said.
