I told Bill Pitney that it seems fitting. He and his family have safeguarded the property for generations and he still watches over things and cares for the farm.
And now, the scarecrow named Bill, watches over our community gardens.
By the way, for those of you who don’t know, Bill the scarecrow is wearing Mr. Pitney’s pants.
