The sign said “Sweet Corn, U-pick, $4/dozen”
How do you pass up a deal like that? So we turned off the highway and began our descent into a beautiful valley – a microclimate. It reminded me of Bear Flats, up by Hudsons Hope.
Bill did the picking and I took the pics…
OMG now THAT’S SWEET CORN!
Soda Creek Sweet Corn has been run by the Kaufman family for over 30 years, Keziah told me, as we paid for our corn, yellow beans, jalapeno peppers, sweet peppers, tomatoes, garlic, and one lovely little patti-pan squash.
This little oasis, at Historic Dunlevy Ranch, is bursting with veggies and flowers and herbs.
I was a bit sorry I could take along so little, but we are travelling in a little camper after all!
So here’s a shout out to Soda Creek Sweet Corn, a stop that we’ll be making whenever we pass by and there’s veggies to be had.
