Well, we got winded out of the event yesterday evening. Luckily it wasn't until the beginning of the evening, so we did make some sales. But the wind picked up, and when the glass started flying (nothing broke luckily) we decided it was time to pack up. Karin, H and I did a performance in the high wind. It is interesting trying to pass clubs in the wind... acrobatics are a little easier. Luckily it was mostly done raining by then.

Today, after cursing the weather for being so nice today and not yesterday, I realized that I would actually get to go to the plant sale at the Clackamas co fair grounds, which I thought I'd have to miss due to merchanting. Mom and I went and eventually met up with Stacy and Wes. We picked up a ton of plants, and resisted a whole bunch more. Mostly I stuck to veggies and berries. Next spring once we are done moving dirt around I can actually start doing some landscaping, but for now I'm restraining myself, or getting stuff that can go in the garden area for now or far enough away from the house that it won't be bothered by construction. Oh, and not getting the espalier with the 6 kinds of apples was hard. I really want it. Next year... I want 3 espaliers eventually to go near one side of the house.

Here's what we got:
