Jars at the County Fair

Filed under:General — eric @ 3:54 am

Since I am officially a farmer, I took some of my produce down to the county fair today for judging. I brought a quart of pickled beets and eggs and pints of pickled green beans, salsa verde, tomato sauce (made from the white Dr. Carolyn tomato), and apple butter. I’ll find out next weekend if my goods are ribbon-worthy. I think I’ll go to the fair next Saturday, wearin’ my overalls.


  1. that’s adorable…

  4. He’s also got a big red thing too…if you need IT (I have a picture to prove it if you wanna see)…

  5. You can’t be no farmer unless you use “chaw”. Do you use chaw now Eric? It is a nasty habit (much like picking your teeth with a ballpoint pen). ;)

  6. I went back to the link where you officially became a farmer. I didn’t know overalls (or as my grampa said “over-hauls”) made you a farmer. I thought the seed supplier “gimme” cap made one a farmer. I got one from DeKalb if you need it…

  7. Well… technically, it’s not MY big red thing. It’s a national treasure. It belongs to the peoples of the US if not the world!

  8. Matt… It’s not just the overalls that make me a farmer. It’s that I bought them at the feed store. I haven’t picked up a seed cap yet, but the fact that you have one tells me it’s not a farmer indicator.

    And Satan (oh… I remembered the other day who you are, and had it confirmed later. Glad you’re here!), it’s been my experience that the guys who repair cars while they live in a trailer on the corner of some farmer’s field use chaw, but very few actual farmers actually do. We’re too busy chewin’ on long pieces of grass.
