The strawberry farmer


By the Bockenheimer Warte
Frankfurt

After the long hike @ Oberursel I was happy to see this vendor by the Warte on a Sunday afternoon. The near by supermarket was closed.

The farmer or seller had white asparagus (Spargel) and strawberries (Erdbeeren), etc.

A box of strawberry weights 500 g and sold for €3.50. She picked each box before selling it. I have a €5 in my pocket and asked if I could have €5 worth of berries.
“No.” She said.
“How about sell me box and half?”
“No I can’t.”

Can not lah! Gosh, a vendor has only one way to sell. Oh well.
