We reap what we sow.
It's that time of year when the shadows are getting longer...and so are the zucchini. Very soon
we'll all be enjoying the fruits of our labour.
Vancouver Island has a rich and vibrant agricultural heritage, and for over a century Islanders have gathered to celebrate the bounty of the harvest. Award-winning produce, well-groomed livestock, tasty preserves and great local entertainment are just some of the things that make an old time country fair so very special.
If you've never experienced the magic of an Island harvest celebration, bookmark our list of
Island Country Fairs...and make this the year to do it.
And don't be surprised if you find a mystery zucchini on your doorstep, either. I kind of overdid it again.
