About Me

I've been gardening and farming nearly all my life. As a child my parents gave me my own garden spot to do with what I wished. At that time we lived in the suburbs and traveled back and forth to the family farm on weekends. I grew pumpkins and sold them from the garage to neighborhood kids every fall. When there was garden surplus I loaded up my little red wagon with garden goodies and went around the neighborhood door-to-door. I now live on the family farm and sell garden goodies at a local farmers market.

Getting into the online business started with drawing a self-portrait sketch to put on Christmas cards. It said "Hoe! Hoe! Hoe!" under a guy working in the garden getting rid of weeds. Then I found iron-on t-shirt transfers. (A light bulb moment!) I put the design on a shirt I could wear to the farmers market where I sell my garden goodies. From one... came other ideas and more shirts for variety. Shoppers started commenting that I ought to be selling the shirts. A few shirts sold, nothing much really, but fun to have beside the veggies at market.

Then... whilst surfing the net in January 2005, I came across CafePress, it looked like a good fit for selling the designs on the net and maybe developing some other design ideas. Another good thing... they also did books. I had been gathering recipes at the market for years and been thinking they should really be put together into a recipe book. Yep!... I ended up with a recipe book to sell at market too. So... That's how I became an online merchant.
