Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Spike in deadly virus spooks animal owners
Maine Sunday Telegram - 9/13/2009.
By Beth Quimby – Newcastle: The fans in the barn at Eolian Farm in Newcastle have been turned on full blast for the past few weeks to keep mosquitoes away from the llamas. Owner Jenni Johnson has been rubbing down the eight woolly ruminants with a natural insect repellent and covering up her own limbs to protect herself from mosquito bites. "All I know is we have tons of mosquitoes, and it is very frightening," said Johnson.
Let asters add color to your fall
Maine Sunday Telegram - 9/13/2009.
By Tom Atwell – It's been this way for generations. The rough and untamed American gets shipped off to Europe, picks up a bit of culture, and then is shipped back to America and meets with great success. Oh, I'm not talking about the post-graduation backpacking trip. I'm talking flowers, specifically asters. Asters are a huge family of plants, but the ones called Michaelmas daisies (mostly in England) are either New England asters (Novae-Angliae) or New York asters (Novi belgii).
Teaching moments abound in a garden plot
Bangor Daily News - 9/12/2009.
By Reeser Manley – Recovering from knee replacement surgery, I find myself in the garden in a new way, as observer instead of gardener. This past weekend, I leaned my crutches against a post anchoring the grape trellis and soaked up sunlight from a chair in the middle of the garden while Marjorie pulled blight-infested tomato vines out of the ground.
It’s peachy right side up or down
Bangor Daily News - 9/12/2009.
By Sandy Oliver – Who would guess that after such an awful summer full of rain, blights and plant viruses, slugs and puny crops, we would be deluged with peaches. But there you have it. Our trees are loaded, and so are several in the immediate and farther neighborhood.
