I met up with Connie at the Morris Farmers Market today where they were having the BUTTERNUT VALLEY SUMMER HARVEST FESTIVAL. It is the first time I have gone to this event. By the time I arrived, Connie had purchased a few items and put them in her car. It was a very nice event, very low key, with lots of area farmers and farming organizations selling items and giving out information about their products and services.
I ran into Sandy Scaccia, who I have not seen in probably 15 or more years. I noticed Kathy Shimberg playing in this band, and we kind of mouthed "hi" to each other but I did not have a chance to talk with her. Her band was playing as I left.
I purchased a few vegetables and a book commemorating the bicentennial of Otsego County. Connie and I took a ten to fifteen minute walk around the perimeter of the park, but it was really too hot to go any further.
I talked for several minutes with Sarah, who did a college internship in landscaping at Brookwood Gardens and now she works there three days a week on Tuesday, Thursday and Fridays. She said the gardens are in very good condition, better than they have been in years. I hope to go soon.
