here. It's been great fun. I fudged the recipe a bit, added a bit of this, removed a bit of that and came up with a peanut butter treat that doggies love. Seriously. Sam, my dog, will sit there and rivers of drool will come flowing down when I hold up one of these treats.
I posted them on Etsy, nothing happened. (though my brother did buy a bag, how sweet) I took some in to work and told people about them, not much happened.
Finally I told my friend Susanna I was selling dog treats and a week or so later she said: "Why don't you sell them at my place?" (Hedgeapple Row Farm; doggie daycare) and then all the activity started!
I've been baking about 3lbs of treats a week to keep up with sales and the fact that Susanna now only gives the dogs at her daycare my homemade treats! I enlisted Mom to be my backup if I get behind. She's on call......
These are the same people (her and her husband Henry) who gave me the veggie garden. I helped Henry build the fence so I would know how. These people are amazing. I am so blessed to have such supportive friends.
I made a photo story for their wall:
|Yup, it's sideways, sorry for the crick in your neck|
I decorated the shelf and stocked it:
I got business cards!
And then I dug out my BIG mixing bowls so I can start making double (ahem; triple!) batches.
Bought large quantities of peanut butter;
Then my friend Susanna says: "Well why dontcha sell your jam here too?"
Whooboy....I'm gonna need a bigger kitchen!
