Tahsis and the Vegetable Truck
In small towns all along the coast of BC, we have encountered these vegetable trucks. Usually they show up once a week in the summer, bringing a load of fresh produce from truck farms further east. A few years ago in the Queen Charlottes, we bought fresh peaches from a truck just arrived from the Okanagan Valley (Figure out that trip on your road map!). There is a road to Tahsis, even if the last 40 miles is unpaved. The vegetable truck shortens the time and distance produce has to travel, since the tiny store here gets its produce as the last stop on a slow and long distribution chain. We now have a stash of fresh peaches, melons, beans, and other luxuries. It's a good day in Tahsis.
