Fall Fair

By Stowel Lake Farm

Entering vegetables in a small town fall fair feels like it links us to the farming community of the past and the present. Admittedly it is a bit silly to try and find 6 tomatoes that are identical in shape colour and size or 8 carrots that are between 4-6 inches with matching tapers when we believe vegetables are better when they are not ‘perfect’. ¬†That aspect aside it is fun to spend the morning before the fair choosing the best specimens and taking the time to marvel over the treasures that come out of the garden.
