You can't call Zeke a young'n. No, I'd have to say he's quite a young man for a 15 year old. A fruit and vegetable stand man, he has been selling in our little town since he was 12 or 13 years old.
This scale belonged to his grandfather and has endured 5 generations.
Zeke is what I call a good, ole country boy who knows what it's like to earn his pay. I went to the Godfrey Tree Farm to get my Christmas tree last year and Zeke was there, helping the Godfreys trim and load trees.
He's learned early the value of a dollar. I asked him to let me snap a photo of the money. He reluctantly held out a wad of bills folded up and clutched tightly.
Enduring the 100+ heat on any given day, Zeke can be found selling the best produce in and around Washington County.
