I'm a farmer!

September 18th, 2016 at 07:42 pm

I'm a farmer and I made some sweet cash from my crops!





I had mentioned in previous posts that I had a major excess of zucchini from my garden. After trying lots of new recipes, shredding/freezing some for baking this winter and unsuccessfully trying to give away to friends and family (could only get rid of a few this way). I had about 7-8 BIG zucchini left and already have about 8 bags in my freezer for personal use so I don't need more myself. I decided to process the rest rather then letting it spoil. So I washed, peeled, chopped, shredded with food processor, measured into 2 cup serving sizes, bagged into freezer bags and labeled.

I put it up for sale on FB for $2.00 per 2 cup bag......I SOLD OUT! 35 bags (70 cups!) SOLD! So that is $70!!! Hoping the nice weather we had over the weekend will produce some more as I have several more people that put in orders for at least another 20 bags, but if not was still a very nice and quick $70! Only took me about 1 1/2 hrs to process all the zucchini, so a really nice hourly wage!! Also it was about $10 per zucchini!

    How interesting! Did it sell to several people or just one? Do you think it sold well because you had already shredded it?

    I sold to many people, most took 5 bags. One person bought 10. One bought 2, ate it and then messaged me it was so good they wanted more but by then I was out!!!!! Yes I definitely think it was because it as already all shredded and ready for them to either use in baking or cooking or to freeze. I couldn't even give them away for the whole zucchini.

    That's insane. But I'm happy for you!!

    Did you try FB for the whole zucchini's? I would think people who bake with it already, but don't garden would buy. The people that are saying no, probably don't know what to do with them!!

    What a great idea! $10 per zucchini is mind boggling...but what a great idea for this and future year $$ making!
