19 June 1924 - Big Crop of Peas

In spite of the cool spring and the over-abundance of rain, the crops are being gathered with satisfaction.  Strawberries were about two weeks late, but sold well, and while some had small crops, most people had an average yield. There have been more cherries than in any one year, in ten, some say fifteen years, and yet they have sold for good prices, the supply has not lowered the price.  Peas are abundant, and bringing good prices.  Last Friday afternoon there were sixteen trucks rolled out of East New Market loaded with peas for northern markets.
