Farm & Food Friday September 2019

Howdy, howdy!

Can you believe it’s almost fall? In August we attended the Fig Festival on Ocracoke. What a great excuse to head to the coast! Despite the rain, it was indeed fig-tastic and my little fig tree is happily shooting up from his pot. This month, we’ve got tickets to the Coast to Curb event in Greensboro that will support their food assistance programs.

I’d appreciate your feedback. Is this helpful? Enjoyable? What sort of events do you want to see more or less of?
