The Outside Story: An encounter with a porcupine

Posted on December 17, 2018 |
By CAROLYN LORIÉ



TOS_Porcupine_Winter.jpg

I once lived in a cottage perched atop a sloping field in Western Massachusetts. It was the lone structure at the edge of undeveloped forest and sat far from the road. The cottage had a large front deck with an expansive view and a smaller one in back that faced the forest. It was under the small deck that a porcupine took up residence one fall, for a stay that turned out to be briefer than I would have liked.

Compromise struck on a new Farm Bill; congress offers help to dairy, maple producers

Posted on December 13, 2018 |
By MICHELLE MONROE of the St. Albans Messenger



WASHINGTON, D.C. — A new federal farm bill, passed by the U.S. Senate Tuesday and expected to pass the House on Wednesday, provides some provisions that Vermont food producers will like.

The bill, which still must be signed by President Trump, makes some modest improvements in dairy programs while stopping an effort by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to label the sugar in maple syrup and pure honey as “added sugar.”

It also ends the national prohibition on hemp production, a growing industry in Vermont and here in Addison County.

The Outside Story: Animals and alcohol

Posted on December 12, 2018 |
By Brett Amy Thelen



TOS Animals and alcohol.jpg

It’s the time of year when the landscape is laid bare, the ground is impenetrable with frost, and flying insects have faded into memory. As fall slides into winter, resident songbirds like robins and waxwings must switch from their warm weather diets of earthworms and arthropods to the best of what’s left: fruit, and lots of it. As it turns out, this is also the time of year when conditions become ripe for the conversion of fruit sugars into alcohol via natural fermentation.
