Ok so today I had this great idea. 
I thought, well I can't have farm days, but I have lots of good product, I'll try to sell some!

So... I called a very well known nursery in Austin ....
and asked the woman who eventually answered, after I moved up the "queue" of calls,
I said " hello, I would like to bring over some worm casting I am trying to sell and see if you would put them in your store to sell for me."
She responded with "we have worm castings" 
To which I said " oh.... you don't want to carry any more?"
she finished up with a  firm "no".

Now I have to state here for disclosure reasons, that at one time years ago I applied for a job there, and was called in for what I must say was a ridiculous interview.
I was not asked once about my education, my experience with plants and growing, I was however asked 
what a person who had worked with me before would say if asked what my worst work qualities were.
I basically walked out.
I have a Bachelors in Science, I had my own gardening business, I run my own farm, I worked in the 
greenhouses at A&M for  years . None of which I was allowed to expand upon.
So when I got this response from them over the phone I was not too surprised. They do however, know how to run a very successful nursery.

What I decided to do is to list my products  and services here on my webpage.
I am in Austin all the time and can always work out a meeting place, or you can  pick up out here.
