Solar Garden Products
A number of solar garden products, besides solar lights can liven up your garden and yard in unique ways:
The solar moler, from SolarPassion, vibrates when the sun shines on it, driving pesky moles (and other rodents, we assume) to find another place in the sun. You simply stick it in the ground (very much like a solar lantern), and it runs day and night, powered by a NiCad battery. It retails for approximately $40 U.S.
A solar powered mosquito repeller is similar in concept (though not in looks). It sends out a sonic wave warding off the pesky critters. It's available from realgoods.com (among others) and it works great, say fans.
The solar powered sunflower, from Solar World, spins in a unique pattern when the sun shines on it-a sort of solar powered horizontal pinwheel.
A number of solar fountains are available from SolarPassion. These range from a fountain with a sizable (.8 square foot) panel to a unique floating solar fountain that looks very cool and aerates your pond water at the same time. These range in price from $120 to $70.
Solar tunes are available from SolarWorld.com. Whenever the sun shines, you'll be entertained by Scott Joplin's "The Entertainer."...
Farm Progress Show 2018

Exhibit Field Boone
S. Avenue & Highway 17
From 1924 through 1941, Prairie Farmer sponsored corn husking contests. Early in 1953, Prairie Farmer joined forces with WLS-Radio in Chicago with the idea to host a farm event even better than the mechanical corn picking contests taking place around the Midwest at that time. It is this group who is credited with creating the idea of hosting a field day where farmers could see first hand the progress being made in farming equipment, along with seed varieties and ag chemicals.The first Farm Progress Show took place on October 2, 1953 on the Earl Bass farm in Armstrong, Illinois and hosted over 75,000 folks. This show offered visitors an opportunity to see equipment, seed and chemicals as well as fire-fighting demonstrations, sheep dog trials, stage entertainment, a fiddlers' contest and even the WLS Barn Dance. In subsequent years, the show evolved to include seed test plots and field demonstrations. While some of the programs evolved from our original program, we've stayed true to American Agriculture and to bringing the best of American Agriculture to our audience.The Farm Progress Show is the 'Super Bowl of Agriculture' with its huge exhibit field and product demonstrations.*Booth prices are subject to change.Don't wait to register for the Farm Progress Show 2018.
