One of the people at the Wagner Lumber ribbon cutting works at Fair Oaks Farms and she had some brochures about the new Winfield Crop Adventure. I said that they had not had the big opening ceremony for that one that they have had for some of the other new attractions. She told me that in fact they had had a big ceremony, but it was not geared for the local audience. The Secretary of Agriculture, Tom Vilsack, had attended as had other people important in agriculture. The event was by invitation only. Searching the Internet, I found a several places that reported on it, including here and here.
Speaking of crops, there is now a wide assortment of veggies at the Farmers Market.
Big Dog announced that it will no longer be renting tools, party supply, and equipment to the general public.
Work on Halas Hall seems to be almost finished. I think this is the final look. Gallagher Hall still has a lot of work remaining.
I noticed this tree at the Fair Grounds last week. I am not sure exactly what it is, but it is some sort of chestnut.
