From dreams to reality; making plans for your 2018 garden

Johnny'sSelectedSeedsFarm.jpg

January is surely the quietest month of my gardening year. Outdoor chores are limited to a little pruning, and it will be three months or more before the first flowers of spring — snowdrops, daffodils, Lenten roses to mention just a few — start to push their way through the cold earth to greet the new season.

Top 10, No. 10: Gun regulations draw fire

Posted on January 4, 2018 |
By Addison Independent



Two county communities hosted at times heated debates this year about where lines should be drawn between the right to shoot firearms and the right to neighborhood peace and safety.

The situations and the results varied.

In Whiting neighbors of a gun range that town officials said was illegal complained about noise and safety. About two dozen showed up at a zoning board hearing in July to oppose ongoing shooting at a Stickney Road range. The owner, Nicolas Iocco, said he no longer runs the range as a business, although he would accept donations.

BRANDON — If a vote on whether to merge Lothrop and Neshobe elementary schools were conducted at the gym where a recent public forum was held, the result would likely be a resounding “No.”

The idea, which would send kindergarten through third-grade students to one school and fourth- through sixth-graders to the other, is one of two “Big Ideas” that were discussed at two public meetings in the Otter Valley Unified School District in the last week.

Winning the battle of the weeds

Posted on September 1, 2017 |
By Judith Irven



Garden by Dick Conrad_710393.jpg

Surely weeds are some of nature’s greatest opportunists.

They appear spontaneously in places where other plants would not stand a chance, such as in disturbed soil or along the dry salty edges of Vermont’s beloved dirt roads.

And in our gardens? Within weeks of making our beds all tidy and seemingly weed-free, new weeds just pop up uninvited!

How does this happen?

By Addison Independent



MONTPELIER — The Agency of Natural Resources has fined Suzanne Reider of Goshen $9,750 for making alterations to Stewart Pond Dam before obtaining necessary authorization from the state.

Climate change: Hardy plants that are ready for it all

By Judith Irven



n Climate change plants D71-710909-C.jpg

As I look back on last summer, both here in Vermont and all down the eastern seaboard, I recall it as incredibly dry and also very hot — not an easy time for our gardens.

And a quick check of the NOAA website for Burlington reinforced my impressions. The overall rainfall in the summer of 2016 was 50 percent below the long term average. A total of 15 inches of rain fell between May and October, compared with the long-term average of 22 inches, and every month was drier than the long-term norm.
