We went to the German-American Festival today. William didn’t want to go. We took Beth’s friend. We tried some of the German foods, listened to the bands and watched the German dancers. It was fun. The festival wasn’t huge, but it was fun.—–William starts classes next week.—–The beans in our garden are over one inch tall. The other rows haven’t sprouted yet. We put some old hay between the rows to use as mulch. We do have a mulch pile, but the items aren’t turning into mulch very fast.—–There is a hurricane going up the East coast of America. It came on shore in I think North Carolina and is going up by Boston, New York City and going through the middle of Main. There are so many large cities in it’s path.
