Corn

At Big Banana, we've had a varied experience this year with corn. For the past 2 weeks, we've gotten corn from one farm and it was disappointing, to say the least. This week, another of our farms...

What local pay phone?

Have you noticed that there are very few pay phones left? If you do find one, you'll be lucky if it works. The last booth I found (next to the laundromat near Patrick's Pub in Gilford) had no phone,...

Well, it was a good learning experience for us, anyway. :)

While the individual farms are for-profit (or maybe breakeven - you know how dependent farmers are on growing conditions!), the CSA...

Ok

OK, I'll continue posting about relevant things, but not about the "extra" items our farms have to sell, so as to keep the commercial intent out.

Sorry

I hadn't thought about it that way, sorry. Since we're a buying group of families rather than a business, it didn't occur to me that it was advertising. Since about 20% of our website hits come from...

As a kid, one of my friends had a small home-built 2-seat hydroplane. It had a kill switch, thank goodness, because any wave at all could flip us. Yes, we wore PFDs, even back then ('60s), except...

Vegetable garden could use some sun
