Being Neighborly

Stopped by a roadside vegetable stand last weekend and met up with Mary Lee, owner of Lindrock Farm. After buying vegetables and three jars of her honey (she’s a beekeeper), she offered a tour of her place. Flower gardens, vegetable gardens, fresh herbs, beehives, pecan trees, blackberry bushes, her cute young chickens…I was a little overwhelmed not only by her beautiful, 80-odd acres, but by the warm hospitality shown to a stranger. By the time I left, Mary Lee had shown me how to improve our tomato garden next year, how to fry up her fresh-picked eggplant so Adrian D’Avanzo would eat it (which he did) and pointed out the way to nearby Chimney Peak mountain summit for a fall picnic. Oh, and then she gave us the name of a great local massage therapist, her cousin Barbara, who owns another
farm down the road and who we then
spontaneously called up to say hello.
