I stopped growing corn a few years back … for good reason. It takes up precious garden real estate and inevitably gets snatched by some clever critter or other the night before I plan to pick it.

During last week's 63rd annual Addison County Fair and Field Days, the #1 Auto Parts Demolition Derby was once again among the most popular events. Over the course of two nights, fans gathered to watch old junker cars — decorated with spray paint and driven with pride — continuously smash into each other until just one vehicle was still running. The event featured separate competitions for 4-cylinder, 6-cylinder and 8-cylinder engines, as well as a minivan round and a pick-up truck round. Here, sports reporter Andy Kirkaldy gives a rundown of the popular event.

Tomato season is finally here. The red (yellow, orange, if not mottled green), juicy, oozing with vitamin C, sweet but slightly acid pungent fruit is in season. And it is a fruit, not a vegetable. We just call it a vegetable.

Many thanks to Nate Gusakov of Lincoln, Vt. for providing the music. The song is "Bellingham" from his upcoming album, "Running Clear."

Patchwork: Late July musing - hanging onto summer while heading toward fall

Posted on July 28, 2011 |
By Barbara Ganley

Yesterday the wind blew hot and surly across the tall field grasses. Today the high dog days of midsummer have pooled around my feet.

Kate's Garden mid-July 2011.jpeg

Moby Dick the woodchuck is back.

No, he is not an albino woodchuck. He just keeps resurfacing. At the moment, he looms larger than life in my tiny garden. I analyze the damage in the morning, raise my fist, and mutter epithets toward the sky — though he’s a groundhog. There’s no question I’d like to shoot him, but I can’t. We live in town.
