The Colors of Harvest

On this last day of summer, we traveled to the Common Ground Fair – one of the highlights of the year for us. It’s billed: A celebration of rural living that promotes organically grown Maine produce and alternative lifestyles.

We walked for miles all the while studying the colorful harvests, displays, arts and gifts. It was fun watching Hannah’s enthusiasm for everything from animals to beautiful vegetables. I purchased seed garlic to plant next month. We sat in on a workshop about raising goats and browsed the livestock barns, dreaming of growing our farm. It was a glorious day and after six hours of non-stop walking and a five-hour round-trip drive to Unity, Maine, I’m pooped! Click on thumbnails for large pics.
