Dew on the Buckwheat

The weather this summer has provided challenges for both farmers and travelers. We seem to shift from bright sunshine to torrential rain every two days. While that has made it difficult for farmers to harvest their crops, the crops themselves are lush and green. Our Museum has rarely looked more green and inviting. The July sun usually bakes the grass brown by the first week of August. Not this year!

Here are a few pictures of the Museum behind the scenes from the first week of August, 2009.
The Carousel looks beautiful framed by the trees.
The historic Village looks freshly washed by yesterday’s downpours. There is fog rolling off the mountains above the Lippit Farm and Otsego Lake. There is dew on the Buckwheat. It was planted less than 3 weeks ago, and has sprung from the ground with great vigor.
