farmers market

here in texas i dont go to the farmers markets much because
several years ago i went to several and to several local
organic farms and observed what they were growing in 
each season 
i also talked to the farmers who was growing the stuff
i then tried to duplicate what they were doing
right now i am growing okra malabar spinach barely tomatoes
bell peppers arugula and basil
everything else has shut down in my garden and also in many
of the farmers markets

however when we were in nicaragua we went to the ultimate
farmers markets
think rows and rows of fresh vegetables and fruits
all ran by friendly nicaraguans

they also had a great bean selection
for those of you who like beans
they are a good source of protein
and great producers of gas

we also ate at a local outside restaurant
which had delicious fresh fish either from the pacific
or from lake nicaragua one of the largest
fresh water lakes in the world

then there is this guy (ill change his name) 
that every calls greens bob
he is probably an old hippie from a well known liberal
university who has been in nicaragua for years and 
has not ever gone back to the usa
he grows organic salad greens and sells them to local 
restaurants in the area
locals can buy from him if you can find his place

so we went there to his place
felt like i was in an old movie
there along the small streets in this town there was a row
of buildings all connected together was
a green building with a blue door with no markings on it
my relatives said thats his place
we knocked and knocked and finally someone answered
felt like we were on some clandestine mission
we were only buying salad greens
inside there is the living area with open courtyards
where he sells his greens
they weigh it out and you buy it
yes it was salad greens nothing illegal

then as we were leaving there was a mirror with this 
on it 
those ron paul supporters will like this one

yep great fish great farmers market and great salad greens
wonder if greens bob votes in the us
