Phelps Fever – Everyone’s Got It!
Actually, it seemed like sports day all over the Shoreline yesterday. On our way back from Star Fish Market, we stopped at Jake’s, a roadside farmstand. Jake sets up in Zhang’s parking lot in Madison starting about noon everyday but Monday in the summer and he’s got terrific produce. His corn is spectacular, his green beans the greenest and snappiest around. In fact, the only thing that’s snappier than Jake’s beans is Jake’s patter — I love listening to him chat with his customers, almost all of whom are regulars. And it was a regular who stopped by yesterday to pin a Boston Red Sox’s banner on Jake’s truck. Not that Jake needed to be converted to the team, he was already drinking coffee out of a Sox mug.
