What's a Girl to do

Peony, photo taken at Monticello by me.
My two favorite Charlottesville events occur in September. 

Not to be missed!

Sept 5 - Monday - Meet Yer Eats, Labor Day, 10-5.  $15.00 a car load - if you register by Sept 1, otherwise it's $25.00.  Twenty farms are participating in the third annual Market Central Farm Tour.  We visited 8 farms last year and that was all we could squish in.  It was loads of fun and along the route we encountered farms animals, beautiful scenery, plants, and homemade cheese and jellies.  Last year we headed north and this year we'll go south.

Anthony took this photo my cousins wedding - I enhanced it.
Sept 17 - Saturday - Heritage Harvest Festival, 9-4. $8.00 - if you pre-register, otherwise it's $10.00.  The festival is on the grounds of Monticello.  You must take a shuttle up from 2 designated locations otherwise you are charged the full house tour fee.  If you want to go to exclusive lectures the day prior, it's pricey, the featured speaker is P. Allen Smith.  Many free lectures and also additional fee lectures.  It's really not necessary to pay for lectures, there is plenty to do for the base $8.00 price!  Food venders, demonstrations, taste testing of produce, seed exchange, seeds and plants for sale, and strolling the grounds of Monticello -- the only reason I go there anyway!
