Henry Homeyer : Vegetables as Art
I would hazard a guess that if you toured an art museum, the artwork depicting flowers would outnumber the art showing vegetables by 10 to one. Or maybe a hundred to one. Flowers? Georgia O'Keefe and her poppies spring to my mind, Monet had his famous paintings of Giverny with its water lilies. Van Gogh had his sunflowers. And so on. But few painters have focused on kohlrabi or lettuce. And why is that? Vegetables are as beautiful as flowers if properly grown and displayed.

Henry Homeyer: Growing Your Own Fruit
Most mornings in winter I start my day with a bowl of oatmeal. That can get pretty dull, so I liven it up with a variety of fruits, most of which I grew myself and preserved either dried or frozen. Add some cinnamon or cardamom and a few nuts, and bland becomes bodacious. In my freezer I have blueberries, elderberries, blackberries, plums, apples, raspberries and a few peaches that I got by trading some apples with a friend. So if you're bored with breakfast, do some studying now about the various fruits you might grow, and plant them this summer.

NorthWoods Stewardship Center Offering Fungi Presentation
In collaboration with the Old Stone House Museum, The Northwoods Stewardship Center in East Charleston is hosting Lawrence Millman's presentation Fungi Presentation: A Painless Introduction to Polypores on Friday, March 21, from 7:30-9 p.m. Polypores are among the most interesting of all fungi. Some polypores can live for 70 years, some smell like anise, and there's one that can tip the scales at 300 pounds. They're also a vibrant part of the ecosystem- without them, the world would be virtually unrecognizable. Come to this event, and learn to celebrate these denizens of the New England forests.
