Over the past few years, Putnam's First Fridays are one of the things I love to do!
As a proud representative of The Last Green Valley, this year I offered information during each month's First Friday, based on the month's celebration. September 2014 is dedicated to agriculture.
The information that I am offering each month comes from a great publication from The Last Green Valley ~ "Notables and Notorious". It has been a blast going through the pages of this book, and reading about all of the characters that have ties to The Last Green Valley throughout history, They are indeed notable, notorious and colorful!
To celebrate agriculture at First Friday, I chose Sarah Gray, who pickled her husband.
As odd as that sounds, it was a very brave and family minded thing she did...
You can read all about Sarah Gray's story of pickling her husband here, and you can learn about The Last Green Valley here. You can also become a member of this great non-profit organization for what will probably be a surprisingly low annual fee! Check it out.
