***SORRY THIS POST IS OUT OF ORDER. I POSTED IT A WEEK AGO AND HAS BEEN FLOATING IN CYBERSPACE SINCE THEN. ILL FIX IT LATER!***
Shupe Farm has released their second product to the public for sale. Emily helped me label three gallons of our maple syrup this week.
The syrup is now for sale at a local farmer's store near our farm. I don't plan to retire on the income this produces, but maybe we can make enough to justify our hobby at the very least.
Grandma arrived at the zoo Monday morning just in time to help me deliver the syrup. We also picked way too many green beans from the garden. The official count was well over fifty pints that she canned after returning home. That total doesn't include the two big bags left in my refrigerator. Beans, anyone?
Though I celebrate our success at growing beans, I'm much more excited about the prospect of our farm bearing the Kentucky Proud logo as a local producer selling our maple syrup.
And....it hasn't occurred to David yet that there is money to be made selling garden produce.
Give him time. He will think of it soon enough.
Grace made it home from camp safely. More on that tomorrow if time allows.
Doctor visit today for me. All good news to report. My doctor has declared I am travel worthy, so now we head west.
If ever there was a need for prayer for our family, it is now. Not for physical well being. We fear for our mental health as we set out across the country with four very chatty kids in the cab of a truck. Now THAT is a situation to worry about.
