We received ourmoon calendar for the 2007 year (can’t believe a year has already passed; where did the time go?). We’ve always been interested in the earth cycles and moon phases (for one life-school session when we were young we learned to how to tell weather through natural signs around us, tell time by the sun and moon phases), especially for productive planting so we were quite pleased with the easy to read layout of this moon calendar. It should be quite helpful in our learning to become better, more in tuned (and perhaps more productive), gardeners.
We sold out of the 1 1/2 gallonollas. Last two were sold to a former city of Pasadena official and native landscape enthusiast. Seems like theollas may be our best sellers (trying not to “count our chickens”). After expenses, we hope to raise at least $2000 net for the website to break even and pay for itself. We have big dreams and plans for this site and our continuing outreach and hope this store makes it possible for us to expand.
For those of you who are interested and live here locally, except for a few dropped shipped items, you can save on shipping costs and pick items up here (and any other items we have in stock). We will be placing another order with the company; so, if you are interested ,let us know so we can order extra!
Today, we added even more items to thePeddler’s Wagon. Check out the recycled tweed skirt, Dr. Bronner’s castile soap (always a favorite here on the homestead), ‘How to Grow More Vegetables’ by John Jeavons (a classic and highly recommended by PTF for any serious garden and city farmer), herbal medicine kit (makes a great gift), Country Living Grain Mill and much more!
What would YOU like to see or be interested in “buying” for your donation? The store is still young and you can help shape its future so we appreciate your input. We are going to rely on you, our readers, to spread the word for this site. If we can’t even break even (after all expenses), we may be forced to take some not so pleasant actions. Hate to sound so “doom and gloom” but just stating the facts, folks.
