Wooden Bowls big enough to hold Russell Guy Perkins tomatoes

2014-07-12 - Adair Annex Parking Lot, 424 Public Square, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener. Carles Lloyd and Russell Guy Perkins were hard at this morning, getting read for the opening, a few minutes later, of the Farmers Market on the Square. Carles makes turned wooden bowls, walking sticks and wooden toys, which he has at the market. Russell Guy Perkins is the legendary tomato grower with secret patch grown for himself, his family, and a few favored friends, some of which could pretty nearly fill the large turned bowl in front, with one tomato. In real life, Perkins is a legend at the Taylor County RECC, with, already, the second longest tenure in the cooperative's history - over 51 years - and will like hold the all time tenure record in a few months. FM2 is open 8am-1pmCT, in the Adair Annex Parking Lot, 424 Public Square, Columbia, KY, today and each Saturday through October 26, 2014.
