4th of July Celebration

Yesterday we celebrated the 4th of July by taking the morning off and going into Staunton and watching their annual parade. It was a lot of fun to watch the old cars, tractors, fire engines, big trucks and floats go by. Oh, and after watching the floats roll past, the whole team got excited about making our own Polyface float for the parade next year! I will let you know if we do. It would be a blast if it happened with all the ideas that were being fired back and forth.

The reason why we are free Americans. Thank you to all our military!

Loved the back seat on this car! Looks like a fun ride.

After the parade I had my first taste of kettle corn.  I’m hooked now!

Making up the kettle corn.

The afternoon was filled with accomplishing some projects that were on a time crunch and some more clean up from the storm.  For dinner we had hamburgers with lots of fixings, potato salad with fresh garden potatoes, corn on the cob, and Sheri’s brownies for dessert!  It was delicious!  Thank you Brie and Sheri!

Some folks went to go see the fireworks in town.  I wasn’t one of them because my sleep is precious right now and morning comes early around here.  I am sure that the show was spectacular though!

What did you do for the 4th of July?  Any float ideas for us? 🙂

About Leanna Hale

Leanna Barth, born and raised in NC, first came to Polyface in July 2010 to attend one of the Intensive Discovery Seminars. She loved it so much that she applied for an internship position and was accepted for the 2011 season, after which she took the inventory/gardener position. Before coming to Polyface, she sold produce from her family’s market garden, along with homemade baked goods. This venture was mostly inspired by having read “You Can Farm” by Joel Salatin. Having always loved the outdoors, animals, and gardening Leanna is excited about this coming year, all that she will learn, and how the Lord will use this job later on in her life.

    The 4th is one of my favorite holidays, partially for it’s meaning and partially because other than fireworks it’s one of the least commercialized. Great parade pictures! The 4th was pretty quiet and routine around here. Rick is on 12 hour days seven days a week right now. The plant he works at was flooded in the storm so they have to replace every single working part, and he is in maintenance. I installed the electric fence in the grow out pig’s pen so they can learn about electric fence before the move to pasture. Envision me trying to string it while they went behind me trying to eat it and tear it down. I had put down feed to occupy them while I worked but pigs being pigs, what I was doing was way more interesting. Once it was up and turned, the lessons began, for me and them. I now know exactly what heights to string it at 🙂 After the initial trial and error (me trying heights, the pigs showing me how I erred) they have it all figured out and a healthy respect.

    Planning a Polyface float sounds like a blast!
