Vermont Blog Roundup

Checking out Vermont blogs this morning. Came across some interesting things.

• The new intern at the Old Shaw Farm  writes a blog post full of "zest-i-ness." Writes Claire,

It's been a hard two weeks of incredibly dirty work... and I LOVE it!

Claire's learning what life is like as a small-scale veggie farmer in rural Vermont. God bless her. Reading this reminds me of the summers my partner, Ann-Elise, spent as an intern, and then as a farmer. It was hard work, and she loved it, for soooo many reasons, but at some point she found herself having to choose between having a family and having a farm... That's turned out great, but I think both of us still miss the farm. Hence my frequent links to these farm blog posts.

• It's definitely the season to read George Africa's The Vermont Gardener. George owns the Vermont Flower Farm, and things are finally blooming.

• Over at iBurlington, that incredibly informative bastion of citizen journalism, perennial Vermont candidate Cris Ericson complains in ALL CAPS AND EXLAIMATION POINTS!!!!!!! that GOVERNMENT IS GROWING LIKE CANCER!!!!!

•  Vermont Scrap Wood makes a good point about salesmanship, as it relates to the governor.

I was curious to see what SR Wild had to say about his randomn turns. This has been one of my personal favorite pasttimes as well (to my husband's dismay).
