Here we go fair week. Franklin Co Fair starts July 11th with the fair parade, and full of all the activities starting on Wednesday July 12th. Becky’s Greenhouse will be there in the spot we have had. We are bringing lots of plants, and more plants. In fact, I am still planting today, Sunday.
The baskets at the ice cream Parlor and general store are from Becky’s Greenhouse. We took several pots to Grandpa’s Farm.
For me, it starts on Monday with a big load. Come back Monday and fill up a livestock trailer and double deck the pickup full of plants. It is always good when all of this stuff is at the fairgrounds.
Weather sounds warm tomorrow, and then a little cooler with storms coming. Doesn’t that sound like Fair week. I know many of you are getting ready to go to the fair and take things too. I am wondering if we have been taking things to do the fair when Josh first joined 4-H and that would have been in 1988. 36 years of getting ready for the fair.
Larry will be out to Grandpa’s Farm helping the fair board with that work. Both Larry’s Garage and Becky’s Greenhouse are closed for the week. We take the week off as our vacation.
Just stop by and say hi, let me know if you hear me on the radio, KLMJ, or you read this blog. It would tickle me to know how you hear about us.
Stay cool, enjoy this great Sunday weather. An almost perfect day again. See you at the Fair. Till next time this is Becky Litterer from Becky’s Greenhouse, Dougherty Iowa 641-794-3337 cell 641-903-9365
