Met Sonny yesterday at the farmstand his kids manage for him. I've been taking their pictures for weeks now and they turned me loose on him. Or rather, they turned him loose on me. He is charming and loves (LOVES) to talk.
"Yes, I'm checking up on them. Wanna make sure they're doing right by our customers. And wanna make sure Kevin over there handles the Kale carefully and Lauren doesn't beat up the beets." (insert Sonny chuckling here.)
Every few minutes, his daughter Kasha (yup, her real name) would call over to him to come meet a longtime customer.
Then we'd get back to talking. Going up to his farm this week to spend more time yakking and see the 120 different items he plants. Hopefully, I'll get another picture or two.
