Join me this weekend!

I'll be at the Spring Garden Fair at Exchange Place Living History Farm this weekend in Kingsport, TN. This is a beautiful 1850's farmstead and this weekend you can visit and see the normal springtime activities that took place on a farm in this era. You can tour the buildings to see how simply they lived! There will be "sheep to shawl" demonstrations, a working blacksmith, demonstrations of traditional farming methods, heritage breeds of animals on display, children's activities, "ol' fashioned food" and traditional music.  All of this takes place on the beautiful grounds of this historical farm!

You will also find thousands of plants and trees, herbs, natives, heirlooms, perennials, garden art, and of course, I'll be there with my soaps, salves and teas!

There will be speakers throughout the day giving talks on gardening, farming and other related topics.  There will also be a "Baaa...ck Porch Sale!"

The hours are Saturday April 24th from 10 am to 5 pm and Sunday April 25th from 12 noon to 5 pm. The admission is very reasonable!  Adults $1 and children 50 cents.  On Sunday, at 2:00 pm, you will be able to watch the Edens Ridge Whimmy Diddle Competition...I'll bet my boys will participate!

I hope to meet some of you there this weekend!

  1. I'm apparently blind! Can't find way to email you. Wanted you to know "Charly" is one happy puppy, very smart with a mind of his own; and Choco is thrilled with him, except for the ear tugging/stretching. Thank your mother again for me. The whole family adores him. About the booster shot???

    The weekend fair sounds great. I hope to come. See you there.
