A Great Idea!

Have you ever wondered what to do with all those extra vegetables that your garden produces?? What about start a vegetable stand?? Sayre has become our young entrepreneur and has started a stand of his own!!
He made the sign from scrap wood in the barn and then asked me to write what vegetables he was selling on it. He particularly asked that I write in bold letters. We live on a straight stretch of road and customers can easily see the sign.
I think his arragement of the vegetables is very appealing. (note: he had just sold most of the squash which is why that basket is rather bare!)

Doesn't this look appealing??? I was very impressed!!

On Friday afternoon we had a "mechanic" set up shop in the ditch right in front of the stand. Collin had just recieved a clutch for his go-cart and the boys were in the midst of trying to get the go-cart running again.

Sawyer and Tristan taking it easy while Collin works with the chain.

This is what people see as they drive past!! Well, the dogs aren't normally there. We have a Teakwood plant not to far down the road, and Sayre's been getting several steady customers from there. This is a great way to share what you've grown with others who might not have the time or space for a garden. It's been neat to see people enjoying your veggies so much that they come back for more!!!
