The little vegetable stand I set up out front has been a great success so far! I'm really surprised at how much money it makes. I'm even more surprised I've never seen anyone stop there. Weird.
I put the sign back up on Saturday. David's dad brought me some great wooden quart (or half quart?) containers, so I've been using them to sell the tomatoes. I think it works much better selling them as a bunch rather than individually.
This morning I harvested stuff and put almost everything on the stand. I kept a few squashes, the not-so-perfect tomates, and all the jalepenos (I'd like to make something with them) for us.
This is what it looked like when I left at 8:00 AM. When I got home, I'd sold 2 baskets of tomatoes, 3 cukes, 5 yellow squash, and all but one of the white patty pan squashes. I think total, the stand has brought in about $25 in two weeks. I used some of the money to buy a new chicken feeder and waterer for the broilers!
Oh, and remember that little baby black bird I had? Well, I called Tri-State Bird Rescue to check on him, and sadly he had to be euthanized on Saturday. They put a pin in his broken femur, but he was too stressed out and ended up injuring himself further. Poor little guy.
Remember that old sugar sack I found from my thrift store trip?? Well, I finally framed it and hung it on the wall! I really like it. It's almost the exact color of the wall. I'd like to paint the room (the mud/sun room), but I'm not sure what color.
