The hottest weekend of the year has already past now. That traditionally is the last
weekend in July. There is plenty of summer left, but we have the first hints of fall. A
chilly night here and there, and the first hurricanes giving us a passing blow of rain are all
characteristic of August.
August is Sweet Corn month here in Vermont. Weíve been growing sweet corn for years
and we now grow only the best tasting varieties. We have chosen varieties that weíve
found over the years to be sweet, flavorful (there is a different between sweetness in corn
and the corn flavor) and have tender kernels. We donít grow Supersweet varieties, but we
donít need to because we pick it fresh
By staking all of our tomato plants we greatly reduce our need for spraying.
