I sampled a vegetable grower today. It is always interesting to see what he is growing or has grown. He has asparagus, turnips, beets, strawberries, zucchini, lots of cabbage, broccoli, green beans, sweetcorn, spaghetti squash, horseradish, pumpkins and I suspect just about any common vegetable you might find in the Midwest. Most is sold out the door or at his local retail outlet. We collect extra samples because the fields are small. He also grows field corn, soybeans, and wheat. It is not a big farm, but lots of diversity.
