Wednesday Vignette, pop up cactus stand

After seeing this photo on Instagram I drove out to the location of the pop-up cactus stand so I could take my own photo and support the owner with praise and some cash. Unfortunately the day I drive by there were no cactus, only free squash.

  2. How did the squash compare in looks and price to the cactus?

  3. How cool is that? Squash forbidden? What a shame. I have a great recipe for making zucchini pickles, so yummy.

    1. Zucchini pickles!? Yes, that does sound yummy. Andrew had to eat one too many squash when he was a kid, and now I'm paying the price.

  4. Nice little plant stand. Squash and pumpkins--both so very special and so different. Thanks for today's smile.

  5. Those price signs were made when the table was new I think.

  6. Too bad, squash is certainly not as good as cactus.

  7. With prices like that no wonder there were none left! Make a note on your calendar for next year.

    1. I bet there are a lot of neighborhood kids growing cactus.

  8. Pretty darn cute! Now you have me wondering if I could get rid of my surplus supply of plastic pots by sticking seedlings in them and positioning them next to the driveway with a "free" sign. The lemons always disappear...

    1. Ya, unfortunately Andrew had to eat one too many squash when he was a kid, he thinks now that he's an adult he should get to say no.
