Harisburg, Nc

By: Alex Stavitsky-Zeineddin

The back roads around Harrisburg, Nc still have working farms and a few surprises.  Just down the road from University of North Carolina’s Charlotte’s campus is Patterson’s Nursery.  Down the driveway and on the porch of an old brick colonial home sit the tomatoes that are sold per pound on the honor system.  The system works like this: bring some change, weigh the tomatoes, then put the change that you owe in the box on the table.  According to my mother, the old farmer says people always pay and do not take the money on the table!
