Weather Watch: After the First Frost

Posted on October 13, 2011 | Blog Category:
By Charlie Hohn



the final harvest of the year

Last week I undertook a yearly ritual known to many in Vermont. I went out to the garden and harvested anything that looked even remotely edible. Green tomatoes, underripe peppers, tiny baby greens, and undersized corn cobs all ended up in my bucket. The reason for my garden purge, of course, was the forecast of frost the following evening.

Weather Watch: The freeze is coming!

Posted on October 5, 2011 | Blog Category:
By Charlie Hohn



Our garden has had a tough year. Between heavy spring rains, Tropical Storm Irene, powdery mildew, and our local groundhog, keeping the garden going has been a challenge (though we have been rewarded with a great deal of cucumbers). Here in East Middlebury, we narrowly avoided a frost in late September, but the end of the growing season is very close. The first hard freeze of the year is coming to Addison County.

The Great Outdoors: Otter Creek Falls

Posted on October 5, 2011 | Blog Category:
By Christian Woodard



Editor's note: Please don't try this at home.

This week, another installment of paddling in our backyard: Otter Creek Falls.

Whenever we slide into the water behind the restaurant there are a few patrons who shout off the porch.

“Do you know there’s a waterfall down there?” they say, gesticulating wildly.

“What?” I say. “Really? A waterfall? How tall?”

Notes from the Border: On sin, forgiveness and the death penalty

Posted on October 3, 2011 | Blog Category:
By Rebecca Reimers



By coincidence, this year as the Jewish High Holidays approached I have been reading "Dead Man Walking," Sister Helen Prejean’s personal witness against the death penalty. Her account of her journey into the lives of death row inmates and their victims’ families is riveting. She quotes philosophers and criminal justice experts, cites statistics and Catholic doctrine to support her arguments for opposing the death penalty. But for me what is most timely and moving is her unrelenting focus on forgiveness, in Hebrew selichot.

Table Talk: Vergennes Laundry garners national press

Posted on September 28, 2011 | Blog Category:
By Andrea Suozzo



Since its opening in December 2010, Vergennes Laundry has become a hotspot for locals, with its flaky croissants, tarts made with local tomatoes, fennel and other seasonal vegetables and loaves of bread straight from the oven in the afternoons.

One of the standout items on the menu is the Petits Pots a l'Absinthe, which are light, creamy, imbued with licorice flavor and topped with fresh berries. They come in small white cups with accordingly small spoons, which make the experience last all that much longer.

The Great Otter Doors

Posted on September 28, 2011 | Blog Category:
By Christian Woodard



Okay, so this is a little downstream of this week's section, but we'll feature it soon...

So, the Weekly Rider is "rolling on" into a broader blog dealing with The Great Outdoors more generally. You'll still get biking updates on occasion, but this week, it's paddling.  

I’ve been doing a lot of paddling on Otter Creek lately, and there’s nobody else out there. So, it’s time to go public:

There’s some phenomenal canoeing and kayaking to be had in our backyards.

You could literally paddle in the backyard a few weeks ago, but this is more figurative.
