The weather was perfect for the Saint Clair County Farm Museum Harvest Festival. Not too hot, not too cold, no rain, partly cloudy and light winds – the kind of weather you can really enjoy being outdoors, especially at the beautiful Goodells Park.
We set up our tent and tables early Friday morning and were immediately greeted and welcomed by people we had met at last years event. We enjoyed everyone stopping by and shopping. We talked about bee keeping and honey; growing, eating and peeling garlic; and we answered questions about soap making and which soap is our favorite and why. Even though attendance at this years event was low, interest in our products and what we were doing was high.
We had lots of fun demonstrating the garlic peeler and many people found that they needed one.
Regrettably I didn’t get any photos of the antique farm equipment, that was being displayed and demonstrated, to share here.
I do want to send a shout out to Leslie from 107.1 Q Country radio. My husband met Leslie last year, but up until Saturday I only knew her voice on the radio. It was a pleasure to meet you Leslie.
Another shout out goes to Lester the goose, who strolled nicely around the grounds with his friend Donna, letting strangers pet him and posing for pictures. I’m not really sure if Lester uses the internet but after seeing him walk around on a leash it wouldn’t surprise me if he reads this and then shares it with all of his peeps on twitter.
As we get back to work, clipping, cleaning and sorting garlic to go to market, we want to say a great big “Thank You” to all of the wonderful people who we spent time with this weekend.
