Hundreds of people shared plants and gardening tips during the Harmony Museum's Herb and Garden Fair at the museum's historic barn in Butler County on June 8.

More than 300 people participated in the plant exchange, trading annuals and perennials from their gardens with others, said Kathy Luek, the museum's administrator.

Attendance was down a bit compared to last year, Luek said, a consequence of the cool spring and late start to the growing season.

“We were happy because most of the plants were exchanged,” she said.

On hand were members of the Butler County Master Gardeners to share advice on selecting and caring for plants. There also were several vendors and plenty of food, Luek said.

Local bakers brought 10 to 15 different pies, everything from rhubarb to pecan.

“It was tough to make a decision,” Luek said.
