$20 Challenge update

February 5th, 2006 at 05:22 pm

DH is not on board with the paper making. At all.

His idea is to grow salad greens for sale at the new farmers' market. This could work, it only meets once/month (I really have to contact the market manager and discuss that). We do live in a very hot area which is bad for salad greens (they bolt and get bitter) but if I plant them the week before and harvest them small, they should be sweet and good.

I already have the seed. It's old, but it should still sprout (just not at as high a percentage as it would have).

So, my job for the week is to contact the market manager to find out her guidelines for getting in, the costs, and the rules. I've been meaning to call her anyway, I opened and managed a market a few years ago and while I don't consider myself an expert, I do have some experience that I could pass on.

Then, I get to figure out where to plant it and figure out how much time it takes to get a marketable crop.

I'm still working on the mystery shopping, but so far there hasn't been a good opportunity.

    Are you both early birds - early morning people? Greens are at their best, at their heaviest with water (what you want to maximize if you're selling by the pound) and keep the best throughout the day if they are harvested early - right before dawn.
