The produce farm at 20175 Manecke Road was hopping on Tuesday. In addition to yellow sweet corn (bi-color corn was supposed to arrive on Wednesday), it was serving up pumpkins, honey, beans, peppers and lots more.

A flat of slightly bruised tomatoes went for $5. Like everything else, it was only while supplies last.
