The kids opened it for the first time recently and had a wonderful time. They picked vegetables from our garden which we had an abundance of. They put them in different baskets that I had been collecting from second hand store treasure hunting. We painted the front boards with chalkboard paint so they could write the prices below their items.
They sold cherry tomatoes, pablano, green and jalapeno peppers, butternut squash, tomatillos, herbs: rosemary, thyme, terragon, sage, mint. We sold bars of soap, body scrub, home-grown loose leaf herbal tea, eggs and alpaca wool. They created a lemonade stand with fresh lemons from our neighbor's tree. They saddled up our pony Elizabeth and gave pony rides and farm tours as well.
The kids made a price sheet for everything, they painted signs for on the road and ran it themselves, taking turns manning the stand, pouring lemonade, doing pony rides and farm tours and holding the signs. They collected money, made change, communicated with the neighbors and made a profit to share amongst themselves.
They are very exited about planting a bigger garden next year so they will have more produce to share.
Our honey and avocadoes should be ready soon as well as new holiday soaps and we are putting in the winter garden. We will be open again!
