Our First Produce Stand

Our produce stand outside Labeebee’s yesterday was a great success- a big thank you to all of our friends and family who stopped by! We enjoyed talking to people about our gardens and the chickens, and we actually sold a good amount. We’ll be back there next Saturday, too!

Our first produce stand

Radishes, beets, eggs, alfalfa & mung bean sprouts, bell peppers, 3 types of kale, carrots, salad greens, basil, thyme, rosemary, and sage. We also had yellow cherry tomatoes, banana and jalapeno peppers, and lemongrass, not in the picture.

The best part of the experience yesterday is the confidence it’s given us in our chosen path. We’ve both dreamed of having a farm and leading a self-sufficient and sustainable lifestyle on our own little homestead, and yesterday we took a big step toward that goal. Good timing, as we’re both losing our jobs soon and were unsure whether we should find new employment or start pursuing our dreams. After yesterday’s success, we know that we should follow our hearts. We’re nothing but excited for the future!
