The 4H barn is always my first stop
I might get some Muscovy ducks (above), they eat slugs and don't take any nonsense from would be predators. I'll get them if I can't find my first choice which would be geese. Local readers, if you hear of any geese for sale let me know.
The straw and manure was free on a "shovel it yourself" basis at the end of the weekend.
Its not all animals, this beautiful quilt was made by a 4H-er
Then on to the produce competition. It was all about veggie envy
|purple russian tomatoes (just in case you thought they were plums)|
I bought a jar of the first place blackberry jam to give to a visiting celebrity. How many people find something like that in their loot bag!
Next were the flowers

I must track down the winner and beg for some seed. Beside it was this pretty cake
Time for some fun
Then home for tea and fair bought sour cherry muffins.
