This week I think I am spending almost as many days at the Howard County Conservancy as I did on my job before I retired. Sunday. Tuesday. Thursday. Saturday.
The Fall Festival was an immense success. As usual. Lots of my Facebook friends went. Loved the hayrides. Pony rides. And all the other things offered. I was there early to set up.
Putting up the apple peeling, and apple cider tasting table. Thanks to MOM’s for their contribution, and to Harbin Farms for their collection (labeled) of all the varieties available here in the MidAtlantic.
Then, helping with the tent (which we took down because it turned the welcome area into a wind tunnel)
then checking out the “bee people”.
The honey is awesome, by the way.
After about an hour helping set up, I went off to tend to my garden. Today, I returned to spend time harvesting food bank vegetables.
Thursday I am there for the new kindergarten program, for Northfield Elementary School.
Saturday, I can’t wait to hear about bats. A free program presented at 10 am.
Such an asset to the area. The Conservancy really does have universal appeal.
