entrepreneur



All you need to go into the pumpkin business is a small piece of land and some pumpkin seeds. Most small roadside pumpkin stand are on the honor system. This person had the pumpkins marked with little signs, and you simply leave the money in a box.

Likewise, the fresh egg businesses. One farm wife has a refrigerator next to one of the outbuildings. You take the eggs out of the fridge and leave the money in a container. It's called trust - it works.

Wouldn't it be nice if it worked everywhere and not just rural America?

My Grandpa has a stand like this. Practacally supported 6 kids off it.


Untill the city told him it was illegal.

He's bee doing it 40+ years, longer than the city has been in existance. Stupid laws....

I agree with SRP, wouldn't it be nice if it could be like that everywhere?

I love the colors in this photo - that bright orangy reds against the blue/purple/grays. Awesome contrast.

We have an 'egg' place here, and I'm dying to stop by (they're not open when I blow through town in the wee hours of the A.M.)
