"Perhaps the most radical thing you can do in our time is to start turning over the soil, loosening it up for the crops to settle in, and then stay home and tend them."

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Smoked alewives spawn ideas
Portland Press Herald - 6/1/2011.
By Anne Mahle – As I was standing at the fish counter of Jess' Market in Rockland, deciding whether to buy salmon and please all of the people in my family, or branch out and only please one person in my family – me – I caught a scent of something deliciously smoky.

Civil Eats - 6/1/2011.
By Kim O'Donnel – Unless you travel in food policy or agronomy circles, you probably haven’t heard of Oran Hesterman. It’s time you had.
