LIVING ON A FARM
At the last town meeting there was a vote to make our town, Colrain, a farming community. What a nice gesture. Most people who live here adjust to farm smells and farm sounds. But there are those few people who complain about both. My friend Lynn has had a neighbor complain about her rooster some years ago. I have a neighbor who constantly complains about everything , some people like to complain but when you live in a rural town you can expect the baaing of sheep, crowing of roosters and the mooing of cows and yes, sometimes very barny smells! I am glad that Colrain remains a small town and encourages farmers. We have both large and small farms here and its a great place to live.
THE FARMERS MARKET
The farmers market livens up when the veggies come in but it’s still an enjoyable place to be on a Friday afternoon. There are still lots of things to be had, fresh home-made bread,greens, handspun yarn, fresh eggs, ice cream, lamb and much more. Ricky set up the tent and helped me and Jane came and spun. I am working on the Farmers Market rug and enjoying meeting new people and introducing them to my products. Here is a look at the progress on the Farmers Market Rug.
THE LAVENDER FEST
JOHNSON HILL FARM IN BUCKLAND, MASSACHUSETTS
Yesterday was a glorious day.. Breezes with plenty of sunshine. Everything looked beautiful and it was a great day for meeting old friends and greeting new people. Ricky helped me set up. I worked a little on the Farmers Market Rug but today I am bringing my spinning wheel. Come join me.
Many thanks for reading my blog on another beautiful day. Carole
