More Changes

More Changes

Happy Labor Day everyone! And boy oh boy, that’s what we’ve been doing! Sorry I missed posting last week! We are still in the midst of big changes so this will be short.

I’m planning to set up at the highway about ½ mi. straight west of my house this week on Saturday. I’ll have a blue pop up tent and some make shift sawhorse tables. Hope to be up there by 9 am. I’ll have some produce, eggs, and crafts as well as a smattering of stuff out of my garage sale. Repainted some of my garage sale signs – they are the same green and white with sparkly fringe you are familiar with so please come see me if you can!

Whooo Hoooo! We got word yesterday that Hy-Vee in Macomb wants to carry our eggs! I spent the morning reworking our label to fit their needs. Gotta order more chickens and some date stamps this afternoon. Slowly but surely, we’re getting there!

God Bless You All!

:) Good news! Sack sale this weekend, Friday and Saturday Aug. 15 and 16! Bring any size bag and fill for $1. Almost all the garage sale type stuff will be included in this.

Bad news :( We had decided the garage sale was just not getting enough business to warrant the time and the space it was taking (Thus the sack sale). This weekend was to be the last of it. However …

:) Good news! As I was working out there last weekend, I was telling God how much I enjoyed it and that if He wanted me to continue with it, I needed a sign. Our location seems to be a problem this year so I had given up until we could get a better location.

Saturday, I shut down and went to the women’s conference in Keokuk that I go to every year. At the end, the minister invited people to come up for prayer. This prophetess told me I had my eye on a piece of property, but I had been afraid to ask for it. She told me to go ask and they would give it to me.

When I turned on my phone, there was a message from a neighbor of mine asking me to call. She has a lot with a barn and a grain bin on the highway that she thought would be a good place for me to set up a tent! It’s about ½ mile straight west of here as the crow flies. I’ve been thinking this property would be wonderful for a store all year!

Maybe someday we’ll buy it, but for now we’ll be setting up a tent up there on Saturdays. I’ll try to get up there by 10 am and run till 2 or 3. Later, when the farmer’s markets shut down we may add a day or two.


We bought 75 more chickens. They are a bit stressed right now from the move, but hopefully they’ll get up to full production soon. Grampa Tom is back to doing 4 farmer’s markets a week.


Seems I’m getting nothing done craft wise. To busy with the garden and taking care of old people. Oh well! Winter is coming.


The beans and tomatoes are really coming on strong right now. We also have cucumbers, oregano, basil, lemon balm, and onions.

God Bless You All!
