I think it would be a great idea for there to be a website that lists all of the local farm stands. I know some states have their own websites set up, but I think there should be big database that includes all states. The people who own them can post what they sell and how much they sell it for, and the people who have bought products can write reviews.

       It'd be great for those veg heads among us who travel by car, and really, really. really love our farm stands. It would probably improve business for the farmers too. Nice thought.+

       All states? What about the rest of the world?   

       Besides, any business can put itself on google earth.

       I stopped at a blueberry stand in Maine, the man smelled like he hadn't washed up in a week. Figured him for homeless and picking up odd cash from robbing the forest of wild bbrs. So I think of him, doubt he owns a computer.   

       ps I bought the berries. washed them well.

       of course you mean actual farm stands. so maybe that's more likely they can do this.   

       edit: thanks [jurist and bigsleep] I'm not too smooth with that style of poetry, how does this work?:

       [dentworth], with just some minor editing there's a very nice little poem in your first annotation above. It is reminiscent of William Carlos Williams' "This Is Just To Say" poem about plums.

       Re poem: one more line after week about the man. Maybe the state of his hands, or his hat or maybe what the stand was made of. Then submit it as poetry. New Yorker takes over the transom stuff. Not that they have ever printed any of mine.

       I like this idea, but especially if each sequential review shows mounting disgust of the stands, with increasingly perjorative comments about the people who run them, and the produce itself. The disgust should be based on things like bugs, dirt, mold and other aspects of fresh farm produce. The latter reviews could involve fights with the farmers, throwing produce on the ground etc.
