It’s Cooler in the Country

July 26th, 2010

This past Saturday was the Annual Montgomery County Farm Tour & Harvest Sale. By most reports the temperature was above 100 Fahrenheit throughout the county but our temperatures did not go above 98- so it is in fact “cooler in the country”! Attendance was a fraction of past years numbers yet over 300 people were “clicked” in by our official crowd estimators (thanks to Wiggins et al.)

Here is a short slide show of photos from the day:

We are grateful to Janet at Le Soleil Catering who was on hand with Gazpacho, trail mix, lemon cake and water. Our bee keeper, Chet from Banner Bee Company, was also selling honey and showing off his “observation hive”. And thanks to Matthew Pennington for organizing the music- The Rookery Project. There were also more than 15 volunteers who staffed the Farm Tour and we are grateful to them as well. Hoola hooping in the shade was the hit of the day!
