TA DAH! The Produce Stand is Awake!

Wow, a dream come true!  Finally, we now can provide friends and families an opportunity to get on the "Buy Local" wagon!  We unofficially opened on Wednesday last week, but today we actually got the refrigerator plugged in and have unwashed lettuce and chard in it.  
Another purpose for the stand was to provide an outlet for those veggies that ripened between our CSA harvests.  The cucumbers and the zucchinis were the worst behaved.  Those zucchinis!  My word!  Turn your back on them for a second and they've changed from a cute, tasty little guy to something you want to put wheels on and drive around the yard.  You laugh, but you know what I mean! 

  So, here's the inside.  Not much to look at yet.  There are both red and white spuds, garlic, new red potatoes, some nice zucchini and the lettuce and chard in the refrigerator.

It looks empty now, but wait ... there will be reasonably priced green beans, cauliflower, beets, onions, a big variety of squashes and lots of other good stuff ... and later in the season, local honey.  All grown on the Farm.   In the lower left corner of this picture is the old antique scale ... the white thing ... we can't get it to balance ... maybe because it's a "money" scale and not a vegetable one.  Make it a great day!  LOL  (Oh, almost forgot.  Since it's on the honor system, the plan is to keep the produce stand open every day that we have produce.  We'll get it stocked with fresh produce by 11:00 a.m. and keep it open until 6:30.)
