The Wood County Fair always offers a wide variety of activities and interest for everyone, including gardeners. PHOTO BLOG
Inside the Home & Garden World building, various horticulture and flower entries showcase some of the best the local garden clubs and other individuals have to offer. Next door in the Grange Building, many of the home-grown vegetables are showcased.
The county's Master Gardeners are also set up in the Home and Garden World Building, offering information most days from noon to 9 p.m. On Saturday and possibly other days, volunteers will be in as early as 9 a.m.
The volunteers will provide answers to questions regarding your garden, as well as details on upcoming sessions for the next training for the master gardener program. An informational meeting is set for Aug. 27 at 7 p.m. at Way Public Library in Perrysburg. (More information on this program will be published at a later date.)
Beyond the building, just a trip around the fairgrounds will allow the gardener to see many shining examples of landscape ideas and settings which they can include at their home. Several area landscape and garden center businesses graciously set up displays at various locations around the fairgrounds.
Sentinel photographer J.D. Pooley took some photos of the some of the displays at the fair this year. Among the more unusual are the sandbox set up in front of the Home and Garden World Building by D&D Landscaping, and the water feature constructed in the back of an old pick-up truck in front of the Fine Arts Building, created by Bostdorff Greenhouse.
There are numerous other showcases for gardeners to enjoy and get ideas throughout the Wood County Fairgrounds.
