One day out of the year, a fair came to Craftsbury, Vermont. Adelard and Mary Paquette lived on a modest farm about five miles from Craftsbury Common, where the fair was held. Their seven children looked forward to the fair, and though the Great Depression wringed wallets dry, Mary gave her third son Lucien a quarter to spend on sweets at the festival. Lucien returned later that day with 20 cents and a five-cent pack of chewing gum for his mother.

Table Talk: Field Days Food

A weekly blog about everything from farming food to cooking it

Food stands lined the dirt paths of the fairgrounds, their colorful signs screaming “Zeppoles!” “‘Fresh squeezed’ lemonade!” “Fried Oreos!” “Italian sausage!” Yesterday was the first day of the 51st annual Addison County Fair and Field Days, and it was already crowded.

The people strolling the paths, licking ice cream, drinking sodas, eating delicious-smelling fried things had whipped my head into a frenzied state, and I was hungry.

Jackie Rose looks back to a point in her life over 20 years ago when she met her soul mate. Given the opportunity to do it over again, she wouldn’t change a thing — except where she picked him up.

Now, she says, “I know better.”

After almost two decades of waiting, Rose was finally in a position to start her search for “the right one.” She just bought her first home in Florida and had a budding career: it was time.

College adopts "no-mow" policy

Mow no more — or, at the very least, less. The grounds crew at the Middlebury College has reduced the amount of lawn they mow by 20 acres this summer, allowing pockets of the landscape to return to flower-filled meadows. Previously, the school has mowed roughly 75 acres of lawn on the main campus each summer — which took seven employees moving for three full days to complete one mowing cycle.

Table Talk: It's lunchtime at 51 Main

A weekly blog about everything from farming food to cooking it

The late afternoon sun is hot, but inside the brick walls of 51 Main a group of people sits on the leather couches in the corner, talking and laughing in the cool air.
