Jim,
We are a CSA so unlike a farmstand I am only dealing with customers 3 days a
week (which might be enough).  It so happens that I have no one Mon and
Tues.  I have sort of unofficially made Monday my day.  I don't have to do
anything business related Mon.  That doesn't mean I don't work in the garden
but I don't have too :).
Hubby is the type of person who works better than he relaxes so he tends not
to take time off which he probably should.  We both like going to other
farms/farmstands.  We actually left the farm for 3 days last summer to go to
the NOFA conference.  I loved it :).
For me knowing that it will frost in Oct is very good for my psyche :).
