Hello All, I am happy I got some fresh veggies, and my favorite cucumbers, too. Love the Swiss chard, beet greens and especially. new red potatoes, and squash, broccoli and cabbage; what more could I ask for? Happy camper here. Waiting on getting more, too. I hope everyone has fresh veggies and berries. Had raspberries as well.

The farm stands are open now. Curra's and Heald Farm, and the Community Market, too. Love checking out all places.

Coming up

Freedom Grange has a chicken barbecue at Ingraham's Equipment Aug. 2, noon till gone. Takeout only!

Tag Sale Aug. 1, 8 a.m.-2 p.m. at VFW Hall, Belfast, for No Greater Love Food Pantry and the soap closet.

Congrats to the guys

The Maine State Prison Showroom announced that the upholstery shop has been making masks. According to the prison showroom's Facebook page, they have made 100,000 masks, used 10,000 yards of fabric, 475,000 yards of thread, and 45,000 yards of elastic. A lot of hard work over four months. The showroom is open for some real nice things to purchase and made top grade, right in Thomaston.

Belated birthday greetings

A very happy 90th birthday to Gladys Smith Holmes! May you have more.

Not much else

Since everything is COVID virus shutdown, not much to report now.

Until next week,

Take care, all. Hope some of you are getting some vacation days for some fun with family. Enjoy our sunny weather, although had humid days to deal with. Had a rainstorm recently, with much-needed rain for the gardens. The hayfield behind me was recently mowed. Nothing like fresh-mowed grass smell. Be safe, and stay well. This month is nearly gone by now.
