Our trip to Onley, VA
I am amazed at the sparse population of this place called The Eastern Shore. We drive thru five miles of farm country on a back road to get to this RV site. I have mentioned, or alluded to, the fact that this park must at one time, been hopping with RVs and Campers. We drove out today because Sherry is a Birthday card person and we needed some cards for the upcoming birthdays. The lady is frugal and mostly buys her cars at a Dollar Tree or Dollar store.
We drove 20 miles to a small town called Onley, for cards but mostly to sightsee. There is a Walmart, BoJangles and McDonalds there. Also we found a Dollar Tree. Oh we were tickled to see a ‘Farmers Stand’. Yep, they had tomatoes and local sweet corn. BUT after picking one tomato and 6 ears of corn, the total was $7.59. OUCH. Corn nearly $1 an ear. Yep, we paid, we wanted some corn on the cob. I am not sure how many repeat customers they have.
But we had a nice day out. Drove down to a ferry landing that takes tourists (no cars) out to Tangiers Island. I need to look that up, I have never heard of it before, but it must be popular.
I do have a question, I know this plant but cannot name it. Only because I have asked before in another state. I want to say something like Sorgum but I am not sure.
The plants are thickly planted and stand about 4’ tall at the buds. I think the buds/tops are the ‘fruit’ but am not sure. I have never been a farmer (mama and daddy were).
This is a closer shot:
Anyway, that was my question. There are huge fields on the way to the RV ParK. We have spotted three deer and there are hundreds of these Geese over these huge mowed fields here at the campground.
And BTW the corn is good, but not quite as good as the Pennsylvania corn we enjoyed in Lancaster County.
