What do you think?


  1. Thanks for the information you share, I am confused a bit with the info you gave on August 17 th 2016 that preferably use the method of F2W then instead you were using in your greenhouse and explaining circulating method video serviced on December the 1 st 2018. Which you gave reasonable trade offs for the F2W system. Why are you personally still using “circulating system”. Would you pls give some notes? Thanks in advance.

  2. thanks for sharing the experience, it looks like fun. I visited Johnny's in January one year and was disappointed that there was no store.
    Maine is considered the flat lands compared to the other three states

  3. Hi, I am from Maine and still live there. Glad you visited. Too bad you didn't get to tour Johnny's. I haven't been to the Common Ground Fair in years. I like that it's a more 'traditional' fair. No midway rides and crappy expensive "fair food". Interesting you were surprised by the vegetable judging. A big part of the fairs in Maine are the various submissions for judging and contests. They judge vegetables, livestock, cooking and canning, knitting and sewing, all kinds of crafts, etc. There are also contests like sheep herding, oxen and draft horse pulling, harness racing, etc. (truck and tractor pulling contests too) I just assumed that was the norm for agricultural fairs everywhere.

  4. Enjoyed this update, looks like you had a great day, funny how you don’t go big on the veg shows over there, like we do in the uk, I’m sure you will see more in the future, many thanks for sharing this, kind regards
