Roadside Stand!

I just love roadside stands!  Over the summer it's where I pick up a lot of my produce.  I even buy my raw milk and pastured eggs from a nearby farm with a 'help yourself' policy.

When we had our chickens and an overabundance of eggs (no chickens right chickies coming in May!) I put a few dozen eggs out in front of our house now and then.  But, we don't have a great set-up for a roadside stand.  There's not a really convenient place for folks to pull over.

Nonetheless, I decided to give it a go.  I've got fresh rhubarb coming in (it will keep coming all summer) and my favorite bush/tree is in blossom.  I'm not really sure what it's actual name is.  I always call it a snowball bush.  I put some rhubarb and some cuttings out for $1 a bunch.

Don't you just love the painter's tape I used to hold my hand-scratched sign in place?  I could not find any other tape & it took a lot of searching just to find that!

On a side note....I consolidated all my kid's Easter candy into one location today & am putting it up and out of their (and my) reach.  To put this in perspective, these are 1 gallon containers.  That's almost 2 gallons of candy!!!

Too bad I can't sell that at my roadside stand! :)


  1. We have a snow ball bush, too! Once the flowers start to brown/finish, they kids love shaking the branches to make it snow petals:-).

  2. What an adorable stand!! I always send leftover candies to work with my husband to hand out there...safer that way. LOL

    Have a great night!


  3. I would totally put the candy at the stand, marked "free!" And yes, I did throw my kids' candy away. I was really angry and they were right there watching me, crying. I feel a teeny bit bad but really I don't, they don't need that junk anyway. (I kept their big chocolate bunnies and lollipops, I just couldn't be that mean.) I love the stand idea. I buy tomatoes from a guy nearby, I saw him getting his field ready this week. I cannot wait! Good luck!
