Brown County Fair going on this week

The countdown on the sign out front of the Brown County Fairgrounds went down to zero, and it is fair time in Georgetown. Of course, it began raining overnight on Monday and Tuesday morning has seen some light showers throughout the area. The rain is not enough to hamper the fair so come on out the fair.

The week is jammed packed with events. Check out the entire schedule of events at www.thelittlestatefair.com.

Soil Health and Cover Crop Field Day

The use of cover crops is becoming more and more popular with the ideas of improving the soil, reducing erosion and reducing the loss of nutrients and fertility in the soil, not to mention improving water quality. There are several different crops that can serve as a cover crop and there are several growing on the plots that will be part of the field day on Wednesday, Oct. 7. The program will begin at 5:30 p.m. and is scheduled to last a couple of hours.

To register for the program contact the Adams County Soil and Water Conservation District at -937-544-1010. The field day will be located on Peterson Road which is on the south side of state Route 32 about three miles west of Peebles. There will be signs posted to assist you in finding the plots. Please register by Oct. 6.

Presentations will be given concerning the use of cover crops and some of benefits that different crops can provide. The cover crops include radishes, crimson clover, rape, cereal rye, rye grass, and many more. Plan to attend and bring a lawn chair. Soup and sandwiches will be provided.

Black Walnuts

Every year at this time people begin to call about where they can take walnuts to sell. As has been the case for over 40 years, the town is Seaman, the location Seaman Farm, Garden and Pet Center and the phone number is 937-386-2134. The store is on state Route 247 near the railroad tracks.

This year the hours are from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 8 a.m. until noon Saturday. The starting date is Monday, Oct. 5 and they plan to buy through the month of October. This the price is $14 per 100, but is subject to change. Call for current price.

Brown County Tire Collections

There are several dates planned to collect used tires in Brown County. The dates that I am aware of are all in October. There will be more details on the number of tires and exact locations in the coming weeks, however here are some dates to put on your calendar.

The collection in Ripley and Aberdeen will be on Oct. 10, Fayetteville will be on Oct. 17, and Georgetown on Oct. 24.
