Back with the Food Trucks at the Farmer's Market
A common question at the Farmer's Market is: 'What is in the Silver colored Tower in the back of the truck?'--The wiring, switches & electronics to run the freezers and refrigerators off of the truck engine, off of the grid when docked at the farm, and off the Solar-electric Awning (Port Pal) when we will be parked for extended times and battery will not suffice at a Food pick up point, or Farmer's Market. Keeping the frozen foods at -20F while cruising at 55mph is not a problem; (and better than most food trucks on the road)!
To the Market today by Articulated Light Cart
The boxes say: "Bananas", but we have no bananas; we just use the boxes
because they are the right size and light weight. The signs in
this sidewalk display picture say: "Swiss Chard" and "German Statice";
but what goes without saying here is: Apples! Apples! Apples!
Is this a market or a party?
On the bicycle today, with fully loaded trailer.
The slow moving vehicle sign came from one of my very good
who saw me riding on the shoulder of the highway the other
was just about to order one for the ALC, and pay with, you
money, when he came in and had a selection of several that he had
picked up at yard sales since he had heard that I was going to install
one. Now, we are having a bumper crop of sweet onions, many of
which are weighing in at over 2 lbs. each. This particular sign
was obtained in trade for 2 onions. What a deal!
Partially set up. Herbs and spices, fruits and vegetables, eat it now,
or grow if for later. You can put quite a bit on a bike.
Vendors on both sides of me have sweet corn for sale. Our corn
was saved for seed this year. But you can get your Kohlrabi here;
or Jalapeño peppers. The basil will always be fresh.
The green beans delivered at 8 this morning were picked at 9 last
Half way through the morning, and over half sold. The trip back will be
My neighbor snickers as I set up the tripod and run to get in the
picture. Later I overheard her talking about her new camera
equipment and the historical documents that she is recording with
it. If I had been using my
head, I could have asked her to take the picture.
