For Sale

Well, the boy had visions of making a fortune selling silver queen corn.  He sat, and sat, and sat for hours and sold absolutely nothing.  We finally moved him to the store down the road, and only sold ONE bag.  That was to the husbands uncle, lol.  I think he felt sorry for him.
He hit pay-dirt when he went riding over to a neighbors house to deliver a bag to her.  (she had given us some tomatoes earlier)  There were a couple of fellas there and they bought a few bags to take home.  All in all he made 20 dollars.  Yesterday he made 12 dollars.  Know what?  He is ecstatic!  I guess that is all that counts.  He is already planning his strategy for next year.  Maybe that is how entrepreneurs get their start.

I would love to buy some of their corn. They are so sweet and those pics of the ice cream below. Oh my goodness, that is so cute.

I would buy a couple bags, does he have a way to keep it "fresh" during shipping?
