RE: Farmer's Market dilemma

A friend of mine runs a plant sale in her yard as a fund raiser.  She pots
up 500+ divisions from her garden.  She gets help on the day of the sale
from family and friends. Everything is priced very reasonably, with most
large pots (mostly gallon) at $4. Choice plants might go for $10. She opens
at 10 AM and is usually sold out by 1PM. She advertised in the local
Pennysaver and put up signs on the road.  She makes about $2,500.

Gotta run!
