Today I continue my quest in creating and posting one block a day of the fabulous That Town And Country Quilt by the lovely Susan-Claire Mayfield. This is day two hundred and sixty-five of that project.

This quilt block shows a green produce stand like you might find on the side of the road. at the top of the stand, going across the green front are the words "Farmhand Produce" in black and white pen, the white outlining the black in a three-dimensional way. Below the sign is an orange table with different produce on top. On the left are eggplants, then cucumbers, then tomatoes, and then zucchini. Each vegetable is made up of its own colored fabric with some stitching. Below the vegetables is stitching on the orange fabric to indicate the pleats of the sheet that is covering the table.

Farmhand Produce is named after Farmhands 1 and 2.

This year they had a produce stand at our local Farmer’s Market. The day before the market they would go to the front range with their mother. They had formed a partnership with a gardener there.

They would bring back vegetables and sell them at our local market. They split what they made with the gardener and then donated a portion to the Mountain Family center.

This was also their community service project for 4-H this year.

A little funny story that my friend told me. She went to buy vegetables at their table. When my friend asked FM1 if FM2 was helping, he replied “Barely”. When she asked FM2 if FM1 was paying him, he replied “Barely”.
