I won’t be showing a prize pig (as Will Rogers did in the 1933 version of State Fair) or competing in contests for flower growing, jam making, or artwork made of dried beans, but the Minnesota State Fair is always worth a visit. Thursday evening, I’ll be hanging out at the state horticulture society booth, where we sell T-shirts, garden gloves, a good selection of garden books, and subscriptions to Northern Gardener. Stop by and say hello. It’s always fun to meet readers and members of the society. The MSHS booths are in the Horticulture Building at the corner of Underwood Street and Judson Avenue. It’s a central location and dangerously close the the Food Building!
