One eye on the shopping list, another on the AL East


Early July is high strawberry season in New England and the mid-point of Major League Baseball's schedule. Our Beloved Sox are riding high now, but you can never really count out those pesky Yankees.

At Wilson Farms in Lexington shoppers keep abreast of the standings via a replica of the Fenway Park scoreboard, positioned high above the bins of cucumbers and honeydew melons. The board, which looks to be about 8 feet across, is updated every day by someone with an exceptionally neat hand.

Being in first place through asparagus season, strawberry season, and when the sweet corn ripens in August is all very nice. What really matters is where the Olde Towne Team finds itself when the frost is on the pumpkin.
