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.

The big day, at last! The Common Ground Country Fair. It has been going on for 30 years and I started going about that long ago so it was nice to be able to hit it this year and share it with Nina. Mom drove (which is why there is no mile count in the title) so I got to take some pictures. I'm sad I didn't get a picture of the road sign that advertised the Budweiser family pack (but you can see it here, that's the joy of the blogosphere!). That's Maine for ya.

I did get a nice one of this old train car, though.

There was a lovely children's play area with a puppet show and lots of activities (we particularly enjoyed pounding real nails into boards with hammers). I remember that I was in the parade several times when I was little.

Nina got an octopus painted on her face.

We went into the exhibition hall and saw lots of beautiful, unusual, and large vegetables and fruit, including a whole table of peppers.
