If this gardener’s production is any example there may be a few vegetables at the Horsefly Fall Fair this Saturday that have not matured yet.
My tomatoes are mostly blossoms, with the occasional small green one.
The rain drowned my onions, my raspberries are late, but of course I don’t have much expertise dealing with Cariboo gardening.
There is always a plethora of canned fruit and vegetables, flower arrangements, art work, photographs, wine, beer, knitting, embroidery, and many other interesting articles at the fair.
Horsefly sends a warm invitation to any and all who care to attend.
The Horsefly Fall Fair takes place this Saturday, Aug. 27 in the community hall and arena adjacent to the school and in the school grounds.
Livestock judging begins at 10:30 a.m. in the arena.
The Horsefly Women’s Institute’s barbecue also fires up at 10:30 a.m.
Opening ceremonies happen at 12:30 p.m. in the community hall.
There will be family games in the school yard from noon to 2 p.m. and entertainment starting in the community hall at 2:30 p.m.
Cupcakes will be served at 3 p.m. and the awards will be presented at 3:30 p.m.
The fair closes at 4 p.m.
I believe there will be a mini farmers market after the fair is concluded.
