I know, I know. This post should be about potatoes, but it's not. Last
summer when visiting PEI I stopped at a roadside farm stand and picked
up various items for that evening's dinner. Among these were a bunch of
small, squat, greenish white onions. As it was an honor system farm
stand I was unable to inquire about what variety of onions these may
have been. Anybody know? Thought I'd try to plant some this year.
That's right. Still in use in rural UK; not just at farm gates but
houses too . You can find veg, bunches of flowers, eggs, home made jam,
honey, plants, even secondhand books laid out on a little stand at
someone's gate or front porch, with a price list, and just leave the
money. It's never a box for the money, IME. Just a big screwtop jamjar
so the buyer can put his money in and take out what change he needs, and
paper money notes stay dry and don't blow away. .I used to sell eggs
that way at our roadside gate, whenever the hens were laying more than
we could use.
Many small private gardens which open to the public, just have an
honesty box at the gate for the entry fee, often with plants for sale,
and a guide map to take round with you then leave for the next person.
