It’s high summer and already some of us are contemplating next year’s garden. Perhaps this fall we will move some plants from one spot to another or maybe dig a completely new bed. And so the gardening cycle continues.

Patchwork: Ecological gardening gets tested under stress

Posted on July 20, 2012 |
By Barbara Ganley

I’m standing at the kitchen sink looking out the window at what should be a pleasing garden scene: the foreground herbs in full flower dotted with bees and butterflies; the middle ground’s tall, sturdy peppers and tree-like tomatoes ripening their fruit near the eggplants and cucumbers; and the background beans scaling sky high on their teepee poles — you know, the way it usually looks out there in midsummer.

With climate collapse pushing Vermont temperatures seemingly ever hotter, it’s tempting, I admit, to head to the hardware store for an air conditioner, a new fan or a kiddie pool when it gets really bad the way it did last week.

It’s the season of first cuttings of hay, fresh peas, garlic scapes, early broccoli and strawberries. The day lilies are blooming, the peonies winding down and the sorrel has bolted even though I have been cutting it back.

Patchwork: Learn ways to minimize garden allergies

Posted on June 14, 2012 |
By Leonard Perry

Generally pollen from plants, but also mold, dust and even scents, can cause allergic reactions in some people. If you’re one of these, you don’t have to give up gardening during part of the season, or have to convert your landscape into silk flowers, gravel beds and garden gnomes or plastic flamingos. Changing some gardening practices, or choice of plants, may be all that’s needed to lessen the symptoms.

Vermont cooks and gardeners can get a little obsessed. We spot one another across a room and pull off to the side to swap stories and how-tos and what-ifs. We prowl Field Days in search of secrets to those blue ribbons. After all, we’re trying to grow better carrots and tweak that recipe for chocolate cake. We’re insatiable learners. We’re tinkerers. And, yes, we’re show-offs.

My garden is no longer my own. I have a weeding partner early mornings, when the shadows are long and the air is cool. Annette, from Gaborone, Botswana, is the mother of our “host son,” Aubrey, who has been attending Middlebury College for the past four years. She arrived a week ago to witness his graduation.

Patchwork: Of seeds and seedlings: A gardener's rocky start

Posted on May 17, 2012 |
By Barbara Ganley

I had a bad dream the other night. A classic gardener’s nightmare.

In the dream I awoke to a soft, sunny morning: a perfect gardening day. Robins were working the lawn, orioles were singing cascades of silver notes from the treetops and swallows were darting above the field, black shooting stars against a deep blue sky.
