At least today's market went ... Read more
Challenges, changes, and keeping my sanity...
Right this second, it feels like I'm losing the battle on all fronts. But that's ok. I can feel that way for a minute, all I need to do is breathe until the feeling lets up enough to think rationally.
I'm not losing the battle, I may not be... Read more
Giving a new market a try...
Since I've lost so many sales opportunities to lousy weather this summer, I've got to find a way to get sales up. So, I caved and agreed to go to a market out of my county. It's another that I was invited to last year and just couldn't do. I'm g... Read more

Been busy, now exhausted!
The sunday market was good, not stellar, but good. Lots of work. Sunday night and Monday I caught up on schoolwork, Monday night I had to go to green bay for materials, went out for dinner and they burned my steak, so I ended up on track for cal... Read more

The definitely met goal?

Humpty Dumpty's got nothing on me
Except I wasn't sitting on a wall, and I'm not in pieces. I did take a bad fall today and have a badly sprained and contused right shoulder. Guess I'm getting some time off, whether I like it or not. Still have to find a way to get the homework... Read more

Better late the never
Hubs did the math and decided to come home after all. It would have cost nearly the same to sit at the truck stop paying for meals and shower as for the fuel to come home.
So all my preparation was not for nothing, after all! And talking my... Read more
And so it begins-
The holiday weekend kicked off this morning with my usual Saturday farm market, but today was a little unusual. It didn't rain!! And usually, when it's super crowded, I don't do well. Today, I did fairly well. Even with doing all the work by mys... Read more
