If the late, great Fred Wiche taught us anything, it’s that people love gardening. Be it flowers, vegetables, herbs … more flowers, whatever, there is a sense of accomplishment to planting, nurturing and ultimately harvesting botanical life. Not only that, but tomatoes taste good. At the 16th Annual Gardeners’ Fair and Silent Auction this weekend, all you gardeners can get your freak on with the chance to buy not only plants, but pretty much any kind of gardening tool or accessory you can imagine. Also, professionals will be on hand to answer questions and help solve your garden issues. A silent auction will serve as a fundraiser for Historic Locust Grove and will feature scores of items such as antiques, quilts, art, gift certificates and more. Might as well wear your floppy gardening hat, too; all the cool kids are wearing theirs. —Kevin Gibson
