"It's the first day of corn [so] it's busier than ever!"
Marilyn sits behind the counter with a blue patterned mask on while one of the farm cats, Leonardo, lounges. Immediately Holly and I go to pet the (informal) Wyman's mascot.
She smiles. I had just asked her if we had her permission to photograph her and the farm and ask a few questions. "Cats can be the star- they don't need to wear a mask!" We each chuckle.
Richard is unloading the mornings cucumbers from a large tote. "Oh, they're just foolish". He turns to look at Leonardo and Marilyn replies, "They're cats!".
Marilyn proceeds to share the goings-ons about the farm. "Tomatoes are ripening slowly. Like every year, it's the same way. We got a lot of zucchini and summer squash. Cauliflower and broccoli. The cabbage is doing great, onions too."
I ask Marilyn how long she's been at this. Marilyn smiles. "Since 1970.... Long time huh?"
