Quick update on the tomato plant, as I just know that I’m going to say next to nothing while I put in all the photos of the sheep and wool festival.
The tomato plants are looking fabulous, and now have a nice cage to grow up against.
They are now 4-5 weeks old, and the rain + sun we get has really got them just a-growin.
Saturday I went to the Iowa sheep and wool festival. Last year, I got lots of things. This year, I only got one thing, but I got 1.5 pounds of it, and I think it’s utterly marvelous.
100% coopworth roving (actual roving, not top) from Hidden Valley Farm & Woolen Mill. Absolutely fantastic stuff. The purple is much deeper and more complex in person. If I hear back from them about a certain fleece, there’s a good chance I’ll also be acquiring that. 🙂
Now, onto the rest of the festival. There was an antique Canadian production wheel:
Lots of wool:
Sheep dog trials:
I already can’t wait for next year. 🙂
