A Little Ruralification
Living in a town on the Delaware River, I am surrounded by many things rural…old towpaths and canals, 4-H fairs, farms and lots of flora and fauna.
Enjoying Local Life
Thaddeus and I recently had a day that included biking along the Delaware/Raritan Canal Towpath, crossing the Delaware River on a pedestrian bridge North of where we live, going to a 4-H Fair and seeing all the flora and fauna that went with it.
The photo above was the vast and varied display of peppers submitted to the 4-H Fair looking to receive (and some actually receiving) prizes for their efforts. I found the display of vegetables to be almost fairy tale-like in their appearance.
Look at the cabbage head…it was huge and the rich greens in it were remarkable.
On our bicycle rides, we see an area of the county that is rich and verdant at this time of year and is also rich with history and wildlife.
