I loved farmers market! I bought dill that smells absolutely amazing (better than mine!) and is going to make delicious dill bread later today. I bought gourds too. I think the highlight of market for me was talking to a market farmer who lives in the woods. I didn't get his name. Steve bought wonderful apples. I got my dose of petting the livestock, ate part of a ridiculously greasy blooming onion and decided I will enter vegetables for judging next year.

Somebody's going to get a contact buzz, if you're not careful! Dh and I would be able to meet up with some fellow Grateful Dead fans! This will be a must attend for him!!!

Sounds like a perfect day.
I would like to try dill bread.
Sounds like I enjoy it with shaved ham, cheese and a sweet honey mustard.

Crap, we never made it. We had too much fun in Acadia. Bar Harbor was nice, but too busy for my taste (a couple cruise ships were anchored in the harbor). We both agreed that the MOFGA fair is something best attended when I'm actually here permanently, whenever that is...

Sounds like it was a great time at the fair, 'special tobacco' and all....

I did the 'peaches in Maine' workshop. The speaker was the same as last year, and his Dw. They operate a tree nursery ['Five Star Nursery'], are vendors at a Farmer's Market, and they supply Fedco with bare-roots.

Then I did a workshop on Cholesterol presented by a doctor from Augusta. She is totally against taking statins. and she has a great deal of information and studies to support her positions.

A workshop on herbs that help treat stress, by a medicinal herbal nurseryman from Rockport. Where I got some very good information. I walked out of it with a connection for a local ginseng breeder. I met the breeder and was able to secure myself a new ginseng plant.

Mark Fuller did a another presentation of soil science. He can be a great speaker!

Then I attended a talk done by Tom Roberts on Inter-Generational Farming using LLCs.

Then Edible landscaping.

Then my last one of wintering over bee hives.

Wow what a busy day.
