Super Awesome Pumpkin Spice Candy Corn Cupcakes

Out here in the country, we live too far apart to make door-to-door trick or treating feasible for the local kids. So this weekend a dozen or so houses held our annual Treat Street event, where homeowners in the area pick one street to set up candy tables so that the kids and parents can go candy hunting safely.Last year…See More

Adventures in Drip Irrigation

It’s not that we needed drip irrigation in our vegetable garden. I think spraying down the plants with a hose in one hand and a glass of lemonade in the other is a perfectly acceptable way to spend a summer afternoon. However, the furniture business was going slow and I don’t idle well.So we went to Home Depot and picked up a…See More

My First Experience as a Farmer’s Market Vendor

So my friends Gene and Maggie are vendors at our local farmer’s market. They’re dairy farmers by trade, but they also grow snap peas, zucchini and tomatoes on their land that they like to take to market. It doesn’t earn them a whole lot, but they enjoy doing it and at their age, who am I to complain? This week, Gene and Maggie had to go out of state to their son’s wedding. Being the friend that I am, I volunteered to man the stall in their stead. They weren’t in danger of losing the house or…See More

"Interesting... I've been seeing ads for the readers, but I'm honestly a bit hesitant to embrace it as a consumer. I don't see any reason a decent hacker couldn't find a work-around to save your info into the phone swiping the…"

"I like the smart phone card readers, it's easy to use we use and you can also email receipts. the only downside I have noticed is some cards take 4 or 5 swipes to read which can discourage some people. "

Jennifer commented on Lucy Clark's blog post 'Why Every Farmer’s Market Should Accept Cell Phone Payments'
"I *think* forms of payment accepted would be up to the individual farmer, rather than the market—right? But this seems to make a lot of sense. Any farmers out there tried using the smartphone card swiper and found it useful in increasing…"

"Can't decide which I love more, this sentence: "Previously, I had been under the impression that the only places you could find the little phone card readers were Brooklyn coffee shops," or the trend of farmers and market vendors…"

Why Every Farmer’s Market Should Accept Cell Phone Payments

A funny thing happened at the farmer’s market yesterday – I forgot to bring cash. I had totally forgotten that I gave my daughters all my cash to see a movie over the weekend and it never occurred to me to re-up at an ATM before hitting the weekly produce bazaar downtown. So imagine my surprise when I find myself standing at the checkout counter with a bag full of red onions and two whoopee pies and nothing in my wallet but plastic.But then a funnier thing happened – the merchant just whipped…See More

Softening Our Water to Save Our Plants?

In this week's edition of First World Problems - we have hard water.This isn't exactly a breaking development. We knew the house had hard water before we moved in. We didn't think it was going to be a big deal. Both my husband and I had grown up in houses with extra minerals in the water. We'd gotten accustomed to the taste and didn't consider the extra cleaning required to remove the residual scale to be a particular hardship.We had to use more detergent and clean our shower more often. So…See More
