Memorial Day is always a busy time in Rochester, MA and always a busy time for the MacGregor family. Most of the family is always involved in the Rochester Boat Race and did really well this year. We also usually participate in the Memorial Day Parade in the Center of Rochester which is what Memorial Day is all about. My son, Eli marched in the parade with his fellow Pack 30 Cub Scouts. The Boy Scouts were also marching as well as the Rochester Fire Department, Girl Scouts, Rochester Memorial School Band, Board of Selectmen and Color Guard. The weather cooperated and it turned out to be a great day.
May is also the beginning of the garden planting and the hay season. We have yet to start hay but are hoping the weather cooperates to start this weekend. We have planted potatoes and corn so far, but we should be planting everything else in the days ahead.
It gets a little crazy at this time of year but everyone in the family works together to get everything done. My daughter is still busy at work weeding her strawberries for this year’s crop. They are looking good and we should be having fresh strawberries in a week or so. It’s a lot of work, but a worthwhile endeavor.
I am also still working in real estate. Call me with any of your real estate needs.
