What is wilson silverleaf? We're organitarians; it's best for our bodies and the planet. We cloth diapered Nina for the same reason. We drive a hybrid car & wish we could afford solar panels on our house. I'm a strong advocate for homebirth, full-time mom, & also a movie junkie. We don't have a tv though; we watch dvds on our computer. We love contradancing. I garden & knit; Larry's a puzzle lover & plays fantasy football.

fair continued

There were lots of agricultural demonstrations, such as this one with mules plowing a field. When I used to go the the fair when I was little, it was in Litchfield and moved around a bit until MOFGA bought this fair ground and set up permanent structures and planted trees. It's huge and allows for a lot to happen at the fair. But it still retains its integrity as an agricultural fair with an organic theme. We had french fries made from organic potatoes and as an added bonus there were hug cans of Muir Glen organic ketchup with pumps. Yum!

I had planned to meet up with my friend Renee but we hadn't made a firm plan so I was happy when we were standing in line for some organic ice cream (maple walnut, mmmm) and looked over and there she was! We met in college and have kept in touch intermittently. She was one of the 4 people who held the poles for the chuppah at our wedding.

It was an amazing day; when we got back to Freeport we decided to go to Norm's for dinner. They have the best steak salads.
