seasonal breakfast

This is one of the best breakfasts I've ever had: canteloupe, cut up and sprinkled with a pinch of salt; a dollop of Greek yogurt; a handful of mint from the garden, chopped; a couple of squeezes of honey.
I love summer.

Hi, Lucette, I followed you here from the pocket farm. We have that question about corn here in Connecticut also, but Whit, who grows on the shore of the Long-Island Sound confluence with the Atlantic Ocean, has a much cooler - 15 degrees! - microclimate than Chris, up in the Connecticut River Valley, so Chris gets corn a few weeks before Whit does. Whit grows the old flint corn that the local Indians - Narragansetts and Pequots and the Gay Head people on Nantucket used to grow. He gave some seed stock to the Gay Head folks so they could have a proper corn ceremony, and also showed them how to propagate it so that it would stay the same. What a guy!

Hi Lucette,

I am writing to inform you about Share Our Strength’s Great American Bake Sale, a national campaign that mobilizes Americans to help end childhood hunger by having a bake sale in their community. Now in its’ fourth year, over 1 million people have participated in the campaign to aid the 12 million children in America who are at risk of hunger. The campaign, which runs through August, was recently promoted by celebrity chef Rachael Ray on ABC.

Share Our Strength’s Great American Bake Sale offers a unique way for you to connect with your readers about the severity of childhood hunger in America while providing them with a simple and fun way of how they can fight it. Perhaps you can include information about the campaign in a section of this blog?

I was unable to find an email in which to contact you. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, and I can provide you more information about the campaign.

Thank you,

Mercedes Bent

Ellen--I love your corn story. I live in a microclimate--the shores of Lake Erie are frostfree longer than southern Ohio, the effect of the lake which acts as a heat reservoir. Sometimes we don't have a hard frost until November!
Meredith--thanks for the SOS heads up--I'll certainly post about it.
