Generally pollen from plants, but also mold, dust and even scents, can cause allergic reactions in some people. If you’re one of these, you don’t have to give up gardening during part of the season, or have to convert your landscape into silk flowers, gravel beds and garden gnomes or plastic flamingos. Changing some gardening practices, or choice of plants, may be all that’s needed to lessen the symptoms.

Vermont cooks and gardeners can get a little obsessed. We spot one another across a room and pull off to the side to swap stories and how-tos and what-ifs. We prowl Field Days in search of secrets to those blue ribbons. After all, we’re trying to grow better carrots and tweak that recipe for chocolate cake. We’re insatiable learners. We’re tinkerers. And, yes, we’re show-offs.

Crowds turned out to watch the Champlain Bridge Grand Parade on May 19, but for some in the crowd, this wasn't the first time.

Art Clifford of Starksboro was just a boy in 1929, but he traveled over to Addison with his family to watch the festivities that opened up the first Champlain Bridge. He was one of the '29ers who attended this year, and he sat down with Robinson Elementary School students to chat about what life was like back in 1929.

The parade mimicked many elements the original opening parade in 1929, which was attended by then New York Governor Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
