The beautiful bulb on the menu at MDI Garlic Fest
Bangor Daily News - 9/7/2011.
By Emily Burnham – In his master plan, Frank Pendola envisions someday having a kind of garlic grower’s collective, where cultivators of the fragrant bulb get together to share varieties, recipes and techniques. For now, though, he’s happy to offer up the 13th annual Mount Desert Island Garlic Festival, a daylong celebration of all things delicious and garlic-y. Eighteen vendors will offer up a mouth-watering variety of garlic-flavored everything from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 17, at Smuggler’s Den Campground in Southwest Harbor.
New magnet school welcomes first students
Bangor Daily News - 9/7/2011.
By Christopher Cousins – Fairfield: Some of Caleb Chadbourne’s earliest memories are of performing chores on his grandfather’s dairy farm in Palmyra, where he has been involved since he was about 3 years old. Chadbourne is clearly comfortable in a farm setting, and with the formation of the Maine Academy of Natural Sciences or MeANS, at the former Good Will-Hinckley School in Fairfield, the 16-year-old Chadbourne sees a chance to reinvigorate his educational career.
Maine farmers hope wild blueberry crop will command higher prices
Bangor Daily News - 9/6/2011.
By Sharon Kiley Mack – Machias: Geography and timing played key roles this year in the success – or failure – of Maine’s blueberry harvest. If blueberries were in blossom when this year’s wet, cold spring struck, producers are reporting a crop less than half the size of last year’s. If the blossoms already had faded, that same rain was beneficial. At the Passamaquoddy Tribe-owned Northeastern Blueberry Co., based in Columbia Falls, field supervisor Jeramy Wentzell said last week that the harvest was going well but what was most surprising was that it was still going. “This has been a long harvest for us,” Wentzell said. “We would usually have been done a week ago.”
