Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
A good harvester has to learn to choose and pick
Portland Press Herald - 8/16/2010.

The path I walked on was thick with weeds, obstructing my vision somewhat, and the plants themselves were a tangle of vines and leaves, creating some sort of strange vegetable jungle.
Apple season ahead of schedule
Bangor Daily News - 8/16/2010.
By Eric Russell – BANGOR, Maine - Mary Newey at Hillcrest Orchards in Winterport has been in the apple business nearly all her life. Her father bought the land and planted trees in 1963, so she grew up on an apple orchard. Decades later, she still gets excited every season. This year, that excitement came early. Hillcrest Orchards opened on Thursday, Aug. 12, the earliest opening date in recent memory.
