Fluff and Maple

I told my friend from California that I was having a Fluffernutter for lunch. She had NEVER heard of that sandwich before! Turns out Fluff is a New England thing, just like maple syrup. So I sent some of both to her family. Her son seems to be enjoying both of the sticky goodies… The […] Continue reading

Maple Syrup season 2011 begins…

OK, so I’m confused! In the beginning of the video I said “Welcome to the 2010 season.” It’s 2011, right? Sigh, the mind is behind…. It’s been a physically demanding and emotionally frustrating week. The amount of snow in the woods is a challenge, and our major vacuum pump equipment is acting up. It’s losing […] Continue reading

DVD: Overcome Pain with Gentle Yoga

As a yoga teacher and someone with a strong back, it never even dawned on me that moving the huge tubing washing machine on our family maple syrup farm was way beyond my back’s capacity. As I fell to the ground writhing in pain, my back let me kn… Continue reading

For the Woman Who Had No Support

Yesterday I walked to Barre — a town about 10 miles from my house. I wore a bright pink shirt that read “for the woman who had no support.” The shirt’s message gave me a boost. It was the reason I had decided to take a sunny day and spend most of it walking to […] Continue reading

This organization does great stuff in the world, and we’re happy that they will be stopping by. The Heifer Project helps families […] Continue reading

Summer During Sugaring Season

Today the thermometer read 70 degrees. That’s not sugaring weather—that’s beach weather. Don’t get me wrong, I love to feel the warm sun on my face as much as the next New Englander after a cold winter, but this is just too much too soon.
