Ain't No Potato.... a Farm Show potato! Yep, yesterday we went to the PA Farm Show, largest indoor ag fair in the country, 91st year or something close to that. We got the usual baked potatoes and milkshakes, we saw ducks, chickens, goats, alpacas, horses, steer, and cows. We learned about amphibians and reptiles, alternative energy, whittling, the plight of the American Chestnut, and the importance of buying local. We saw the 800 pound butter sculpture, bought maple syrup and apple cider, hot mustard and maple sugar candies. I picked up some fiber - direct from the lady farmers themselves. We met some friends and explored the main exhibit hall. And, we saw the rodeo! The farm show is going on through January 14th - so git on out to Harrisburg! Yeeeeeee HAW!
