Today was the annual non-motorized farm implement auction. There were thousands of folks there. Along with farm equipment for sale, there are all sorts of poultry and rabbits. There were puppies and plants, boots and baskets, hand tools and honey. At any time, there were at least three auction rings going.
It's a really neat experience. We did not buy any bantan roosters, pheasants, ducks, guinea hens, fighting cocks, geese or peacocks (okay, there was only ONE peacok to purchase - I exaggerate.) We settled for some tomato plants, a jar of honey and multiple desserts.
