As an LSU fan I'm always looking for ways to show my collegite pride. P. Allen Smith's latest web article, "Using Purple in the Garden + My Top Ten Purple Flowers," reminded me that people really are interested in showing their colors in the fall.
Catipalize on this idea for your farmers market flower station. Gather flower colors and make a pennet of your local college teams and sell flowers that help them make a statement at their game day parties. Don't forget your national football fans are most likely hosting a party at home.
