DiIorio Farms

While U.S. 290 usually isn't the quickest route between my folks' place in Houston and the Beetsolonely North American headquarters here in Austin, it does give me a chance to stop off at DiIorio Farms in Hempstead for some fresh produce.

I bought some large homegrown tomatoes, a pound of green beans and a rather large watermelon there yesterday. It's the height of watermelon season right now, and they grow some sweet ones in Waller County.

DiIorio Farms is on the old U.S. 290 business route that goes through the center of Hempstead. It's a nice way to break up the drive if you aren't in a huge hurry.
