In John Bunker's beautiful essay about ancient apple trees in this summer's MOF&G, he writes "Would that we all could enjoy traveling less, enjoying our yards and our neighbors more, tending our gardens, eating local and expressing grace in everything we do." August in Maine makes it easy to enjoy all the things John listed. Our gardens and kitchen counters are overflowing with fresh produce from our gardens, our neighbors, and our local farms. The warm, sunny days help ripen our tomatoes, and the cool, bug free evenings make it more comfortable to be out pulling weeds (or just enjoying an evening cup of tea by the edge of the garden). When you next take a break from this busy season, read on for some helpful resources and upcoming ways to celebrate gardening with MOFGA through online events and the Common Ground Country Fair's digital Exhibition Hall.
