Common Ground Fair

Last weekend we also had the opportunity to go to the Common Ground Fair
It was amazing, I had not been in years. I finally became a member of Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association (MOFGA).

I would like to grow some of these pumpkins next year, I love the way they look.


There was all walks of life at the fair. It was fun to just kick back and watch the crowd. 59,000 attended the 3 day event. Check out her dreadlocks.




The kids had the chance to play like we did when we were kids. Sliding down a hill on cardboard.



You take a couple pieces of newspaper and then one piece of colored paper (he choose camouflage) you place them on a paint can and then wrap masking tape around the can and paper 2-3 inches down. Viola…one groovy hat.


We milked a goat, a first for all of us.



Even our Maine Man….. initially he resisted (I think because he knew I’d get a snapshot) but with a bit of peer pressure he caved.

I got lots of good ideas from the crafters. Painted gourds aren’t these cool? We did not grow gourds this year and we usually do, we will for sure next year.



Can you guess what this is?
