Honesty Policy

Since moving to the farm we have sold many of goodies by the roadside. We had a farm stand one summer followed by a pumpkin stand that fall. We have sold eggs in a cooler and the kids have sold crawlers a couple of Springs including this past. Some people come and go, others like to chit chat if we are outside. I like both kinds of people. The one thing they all have in common thus far is that MOST people truly are honest. It is nice to be able to leave a jar out and not have to tend the stand, it is nice to know that a good many people are honest. Maine Man is sold out of peppers but he has a few more tomato plants to sell. When I was in town the other day I saw single tomato plants selling for $3.99. We're not looking to make living, it is just nice to recoup some of money we have in seeds. Next year we will have more of a selection.

THese are the kind of stands I look for! My corn man has a stand, but I email him and order by the feed bag for freezing!

Thanks for being one of the people who takes care of people like me!

I can't say the same here...if I put something like that out, I'm afraid it would be gone before I could bat an eye. A friend put a file cabinet in front of her house with a "free" sign on it and it sat and sat. Someone suggested she put a "for sale" sign on it...she did...and it was gone within a few hours. Crazy. And sad.
