Hidden Worlds: Sidelong Glances
Odd thoughts strike in odd places and at unexpected times. Waiting for a friend, I stood upon granite steps walled on either side by uneven limestone blocks rising several feet high. The hot sun beat down uncomfortably from the south. My friend was not on time, so I descended and walked around to the northern wall of the steps seeking whatever shade it provided.

A Walk in the Woods
Throughout my days as the Grafton County Extension Forester I get the pleasure of walking on an amazing diversity of private woodlands. Generally speaking, north and east Grafton County are dominated by rocky soil covered by spruce, balsam fir and northern hardwoods with a mix of pine and oak. The forests and farms of the Connecticut River Valley on the other hand have better soil and are dominated by oak, pine and hemlock.

Henry Homeyer: Composting
Most of us have our own insecurities. We might be insecure about some aspect of our looks, or how we did in school, or perhaps about our athletic abilities. For gardeners, our compost piles are often a source of mild angst. We think we should be able to make compost that looks and smells like the black rich soil in just three months. Some go to great lengths: turning their compost piles and adding grass clippings or manure to get their compost piles to heat up. Yet most of us never have a "textbook perfect pile." I say, "So what?" I buy it by the truckload as I can't make enough with kitchen scraps - and it's not convenient to dig it out from under a pile of freshly pulled weeds.

What's Bugging Our Animals?!
During the hot summer months, both large and small animals can suffer unwanted attention from biting flies and mosquitoes. These flies are not only the typical "house flies" we see, but species such as black flies, deer flies, and horse flies. In many cases, the mosquitoes and flies prefer to "strike" the sensitive and fairly thin skin of the animal's ears. This has led to the common term "fly strike" as a means of describing the problem. Mosquitoes can carry disease to small and large animals. Hot days with little wind allow these insects to attack and cause more problems than days with a brisk breeze. Fly strike is uncomfortable for the animal and can be seen as seen as crusty and/or oozing lesions along the ear flaps: as the ears are continually wounded, more flies are attracted and bite.
