The forecast for the Moxie Festival is mixed. It might rain. As the Moxie math goes, heat always trumps rain for the festival, meaning folks will come out in the heat but not so much in the rain. The good news is that the temperatures are cooler than normal for this time of year and right now, the weather puppets are saying the rain will hold until after the parade.
I was just out in the garden inspecting the peas and other climbing plants. Some are more lush than other, but I think they’ll all flower. I like annual vines, like runner beans and morning glories. I’ll have to write a post about them soon.
Last Friday, Handy and I took a drive down to Five Islands. I had the good fortune to interview the owner of Five Islands Farm at a cheese tasting she hosted. Is it still politically correct to go to cheese tastings?
It was a lovely afternoon and Heidi, the owner, is delightful. She loves and promotes local Maine cheeses. Oh, and she plays wonderful jazz too.
Handy and I bought some cheese and a few other provisions; we soaked up a little sun and some jazz. It was swell.
What’s not to like about that?
