Brian, hearing of that trust in humans is something wonderful, that the veggie stands can be left alone, people to take and pick their goods. I think that most people are pretty honest and would obey the rules of honesty, but now and then you get those nasties too, but the good probably outweigh the nasties. When I first began with my small nursery I had, I had an honour system for when I had to go out. During those days I had a very tiny clientelle and now and then someone would come to the nursery, take some flowers and leave the money in the lock box.
I remember one man who was a regular at my nursery. I didn't know it, but he was a writer for our local newspaper. One day I read a tiny, little article in the paper about the lady with the small nursery who had the honour system. He was speaking about me, the little tiny honour system nursery.
The following years my size increased with the nursery, and I got so busy that I didn't leave the nursery alone, ever, except when it wasn't open. I just had to spend too much time there, transplanting, selling, and so on. But I will never forget how impressed this man was with my trust in the human folk. Just a little part of my history, involving trust in life. Beautiful and wonderful days. Cindi
