Strawberry picking.jpeg

It’s the season of first cuttings of hay, fresh peas, garlic scapes, early broccoli and strawberries. The day lilies are blooming, the peonies winding down and the sorrel has bolted even though I have been cutting it back.

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.

ADDISON COUNTY –– Many Addison County schools have gardens that supply food to their lunch programs and teach students about agriculture during the academic year.

However, over the summer vacation, when these gardens need the most care, students are at home.

Three local schools — Ferrisburgh Central School, Lincoln Community School and Patricia A. Hannaford Career Center — have figured out how to address this issue, with solutions ranging from committees to parent involvement to partnering with youth day camps.

My garden is no longer my own. I have a weeding partner early mornings, when the shadows are long and the air is cool. Annette, from Gaborone, Botswana, is the mother of our “host son,” Aubrey, who has been attending Middlebury College for the past four years. She arrived a week ago to witness his graduation.

I had a bad dream the other night. A classic gardener’s nightmare.

In the dream I awoke to a soft, sunny morning: a perfect gardening day. Robins were working the lawn, orioles were singing cascades of silver notes from the treetops and swallows were darting above the field, black shooting stars against a deep blue sky.

We harvested more potatoes today, on a warm clear afternoon, geese threading south high above. With the first killing frost a few days ago, we now light a fire in the fireplace at night, but steadfastly refuse to turn on the heat during the day. The temperature went down to 58 in the house; sweaters came out, quilts for the beds, the soup pot went on the stove and we began toting firewood.
