It is fall now and the weather has definitely changed. We actually got our “new” wood stove in and ran it to take the chill off. We shall see how good it works to keep the house warm. Since it is in the cellar, I have some doubts. Hopefully I will be proven wrong. In the meantime, we can go down cellar to warm up.
Like everyone, we are scrambling to save what is left of the garden. Most of what we have is frost hardy so we are in luck there. A few items are in the greenhouse and can take more cold that way. In any case, the growing season is all but over here.
This week, be sure and go to the Farmers Market this Saturday at the old Fox School. Waterford Fourth-Grade students grew pumpkins that will be for sale from 9 to 11 a.m.
Also this Saturday there will be a Hog Roast at the Waterford Fair Grounds. Cost is $20 and there will be music, bike events, and camping. This will benefit Ben Church. FMI call Dannie Brett at 461-4287 or Stacey at 743-5012.
There is also a Farmer’s Market in Norway every Thursday from 2 to 6 p.m. Area farmers have all sorts of good vegetables and baked goods. It is in the parking lot behind Fare Share Market.
Attended the first session of the Maine Humanities Council book discussion of five Maine writers. It was very interesting and well attended. The next session, Oct. 1, is about Collected Lyrics from Edna St. Vincent Millay and is at the North Bridgton Library at 3 p.m.
That is all of this week. I want to wish a belated Happy Birthday to David Hart Sr. And thank everyone who attended our House Warming/Anniversary Party. A good time was had by all. Have a great week.
