Pies and gardening this weekend

If you'd like your local food in tasty "pick it up and buy it" form, stop by the Dryden bank on Saturday morning:

The crisp, cool days of autumn have arrived, bringing with them the yearning for treats fresh from the oven, which means its time for the Dryden Town Historical Society's famous annual home-made Pie and Bread Sale! This mouth-watering event will be held on Saturday, November 6th, in the lobby of the 1st National Bank of Dryden (West Main Street, Dryden) beginning at 9 AM. This sale is made possible by the efforts of our members who are among the finest bakers in the county. Come early for the best selection and don't count on finding so much as crumb left after 11:30. For more information, call Mary Hornbuckle (898-3461).

If you're more interested in growing your food, the Dryden Community Garden has two end-of-season events Sunday. First, from 1:00pm to 3:00pm, a Putting The Garden To Bed day "to clean up the beds and paths, and to heap the vines etc. into a temporary compost pile. (A more formal compost system will be constructed next spring.)"

After that, they'll be having a celebration of the garden from 4:00pm to 6:00pm at the Dryden Community Center Cafe. They not only built the garden this year, and had people using plots, but also harvested huge quantities of squash from the extra space that they donated to food pantries and dinners.

To see what it looked like in summer, you can explore pictures I took earlier.
