The best way to get fresh strawberries is to pick them yourself

In case you missed the memo, strawberries are currently in season; and, might we add, very delicious. We checked out the picking action at Apple Hill Farm last week, and let’s just say we expect plenty of pies, smoothies and jams to be made in the not too distant future. Picking times are 8 a.m. to noon, Monday through Saturday, through the 89 Hoit Road entrance. The season runs through early July; and there’s also Rossview Farm,...

Hurling-CI-061615

The Barley House Wolves had their hurling home opener at Amoskeag Beverages in Bow on Saturday afternoon, and hurl they did! They defeated a visiting team from Hartford, and if we understood how the scoring went in hurling, we’d totally put the final score here. It was a perfect day for some good action, though, and there was plenty of opening-day pageantry – the teams walked onto the field to the sound of bagpipes and the first ball...

BeereAudubon-CI-052615

Susan Beere has spent the better part of the last quarter century creating ceramic tile art, ranging from large murals to small paintings. As you can tell from this selection, Beere is obviously a big fan of birds, baby birds and just about anything related to birds. In recent years, Beere has been working with free form tiles (like the giant hummingbird on the other page) that would certainly create quite a buzz among the cats in...

For the second consecutive year, residents at Havenwood Heritage Heights teamed up with Dean and Meg Wilber of Mapletree Farm to tap trees on campus and make their own maple syrup.
