State Fair 2011

We like the State Fair.  Usually we stay on the side with all the animal barns, and we go to the Swine Barn, the Cattle Barn, the Sheep Barn, etc.  But this year we decided to try the other side of the Fair.  There used to be a time when there wasn’t much there, but Chef convinced me to check it out.  And the Fair has grown a lot!

We learned all about no-till agriculture and water conservation at the Pathway to Water Quality, and we saw a cicada.

The cicada was not part of the exhibit, though.

Chef learned to tie knots in the Boy Scout area.

We saw a pretty cow,

and sheep and goats















and elephants!


And we ate at the Indiana Pork Producers tent, then got some Hot Wisconsin Cheese, and then had a nice, cool vanilla shake from the Dairy Barn.

Then we finished off with a Deep Fried Klondike Bar.  It was actually kind of yummy.

That’s pretty much our eating tradition: pork, cheese, vanilla shake, and something fried on a stick.  It’s a good tradition.

I love the State Fair.


About Karen Koch

I like the old-fashioned lifestyle. All this new-fangled stuff baffles me sometimes. I cherish living out in the country, raising chickens and rabbits, planting fruit trees, and enjoying a slow life filled with beautiful words and ideas. I don't always achieve a slow life. I teach middle school English and manage a little burgeoning farm with my husband, and somewhere in the midst of that, I try to find time for writing, running, knitting, reading, and playing the ukulele. And sometimes, I actually succeed.
