Kennebec Journal - 9/8/2011.
By Clarke Canfield – Old-fashioned apples are back in fashion. After nearly disappearing from the marketplace, apple varieties that were popular decades or even centuries ago are making a resurgence.

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.
