The Friends of Carpenter-Carse Library is holding its second annual Garden tour of six beautiful Hinesburg gardens on Sunday, June 13 from 10:00 to 3:00.
Home gardens are flourishing, and Food Shelf volunteer prima Karen Doris reports that the abundance of fresh vegetables made a recent Wednesday evening Food Shelf distribution look like a farmers market.
The first indication I had that there was a “hussie” in the garden was the intoxicating scent of perfume as I was drifting off to sleep. How sweet it was. Could it have been the Stargazer lily or perhaps Casa Blanca? Maybe clethra rosea, aka “summersweet”?
In 1996, I was a recent college graduate with a degree in Ecological Agriculture and Sustainable Community Development from Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington. I had just moved to Vermont. I was working as a baker at Klinger’s Bread Company in South Burlington, looking for an opportunity to farm and waiting for Nate—my long-time friend and new boyfriend—to finish his last year of studies in Plant and Soil Science at UVM.
On Nov. 8 Deb Preston said, “This morning I was putting the garden to bed, so I was out amongst all the pretty frost.” Same day, Kit Perkins said, “I took this early morning; first hard frost.”
