Clue/Question:  When the farmer began selling his own vegies and fruits, the result was a – – –

(I like it!  You know me, folks, the stinkier the better, when it comes to puns!  And, today’s is about as stinky as they come.  I bet farmer Jack is using good old manure to fertilize his fields.  We actually have another new clue word today, in “bearer”.  Our good friend, ralis95, will have to add this to his world famous clue word database!  Three of the jumbles came up as new, but we’ve definitely seen “sogeo” before.  Both “rohyte” and “eerrba” presented a bit of a challenge.  The answer letter layout had me stumped for about a minute.  A testimony to David Hoyt’s hard work.  At first I thought the second word was STORY.  But, even that gave me enough, in the remaining letters, to see that the first word was going to be a pun on GROCERY, and I just swapped the Y for an E to make STORE.  Cute cartoon, as usual.  From roadside stand to full-fledged grocery store.  I love driving through the country and stopping at roadside stands, for farm fresh fruits and veggies.  Some of them even use the honor system!  I hope we all make an effort to support our local farmers.  It’s good for the economy, and locally grown produce is usually healthier for you, because it’s fresher.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I really struggled to get theory & bearer, grrrr. But it’s so much fun when solved, eh Unc? Figured out store quickly and the remaining letters easily formed the true stinkiness. Good one today!

    UR, I remember going to Farmer Jack’s grocery stores way back when I lived in Michigan! And speaking of roadside stands using the honor system, it wasn’t all that many years ago, that an elderly man used to ride up a fairly busy street a few miles away, with his horse pulling a cart containing veggies, mainly tomatoes and corn- he had a weathered stand where he would leave an old wooden box with a lock on it, and you paid what you wanted. Then he’d come back at the end of the day to collect his box. It was a heartwarming perfect slice of vintage Americana!

    Probably not with the horse pulling a cart – unless you’re in Amish country – but, there are still plenty of roadside stands along country highways that use the old wooden box honor system! — YUR
