Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Safe food, from soil to plate
Other Words - 6/2/2010.
By Amanda Hitt – E. coli-laden romaine lettuce recently sickened dozens of Americans in five states, as a food-related listeria outbreak killed at least two Texans. These were just the latest in a string of similar incidents. An endless deluge of foodborne illness outbreaks demands the reevaluation of our food system.
Workshops help food entrepeneurs find the recipe for success
Portland Press Herald - 6/1/2010.
By Ann S. Kim – When Fayth Preyer decided it was time to fine-tune her recipes, she put up 275 jars of pickled goods. She went to work hand-packing and processing the jars – no more than six at a time – in the kitchen of her Portland home. The results of her labor went out to her friends and their feedback came back in.
Maine apple producers wait for verdict on frost damage
Bangor Daily News - 6/1/2010.
By Sharon Kiley Mack – Machias: “The jury is still out,” apple grower Rob Boothby of Livermore reported Sunday as he assessed his orchard’s apple crop. Three nights of severe and unexpected frost in mid-May appear to have heavily damaged apple production in southern Maine – with some orchards predicting a 90 percent failure – but Boothby said the real evidence will be “the June drop.” He explained that each apple blossom sets several fruit and then naturally drops the weakest ones in June.

Bangor Daily News - 6/1/2010.
By Eric Russell – Morrill: The easiest way to get rid of pesky bedbugs, which have seen a resurgence in recent years, is to spray with toxic pesticides or use a concentrated heat source to kill them. Unfortunately, those methods are usually expensive. But there is another way: A thin, polypropylene material that covers mattresses or pillows, which keeps the insects from their food source – unwitting sleepers – can be had for about $20.
