I have been growing Knockout roses with good success. The are hybrids, developed for hardiness so that even a bumbling gardener like me can’t harm them.
Last year someone gave me a fancy rose bush — I think it is called a Tiffany. It produced beautiful roses, but only about 2 of them. This year, the leaves are turning yellow, and the plant looks sick.
New Mexico, is one of the top ten states with the most
undocumented illegal immigrants.
Governor Peter Shumlin, U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy
and U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont

licenses. THE PROBLEM is now,
NEW MEXICO is planning to allow the SLAUGHTER
of HORSES for FOOD for HUMAN CONSUMPTION.
I have been growing tomatoes every year with more and more fruit each time although much if it comes very late in the season. This year my plants are kind of spindly looking. I use a special fertilizer ever year made with epsom salts, powdered milk, baking soda, and compost I plan in the hole with my tomatoes.
How is everyone else doing this year with their gardening, and do you have any tips for the tomatoes?

I started this letter last year, in a fit of pique at President Obama, who I perceived was moving in the wrong direction. Today, I finished it. Here’s what I wrote:
Dear President Obama,
All of your policies are wrong. Here are some things missing from your policies:
New Mexico, one of the top ten states with the most illegal immigrants (like Governor Peter Shumlin wants in Vermont) is now planning to SLAUGHTER HORSES for FOOD for HUMAN CONSUMPTION.
Does anyone know what has happened in Brattleboro today? We’ve lost electricity twice today. Once around 5:45 am and again at 4:45pm. I saw some telephone’and power trucks’over by Linden Street and it looked like a line was down. It is odd to lose power a total of now three times this passing week.
” Cream were a 1960’s British rock supergroup power trio consisting of bassist/vocalist Jack Bruce, guitarist/vocalist Eric Clapton and drummer Ginger Baker. Their sound was characterized by a hybrid of blues rock, hard rock and psychedelic rock, combining the psychedelic-themed lyrics, Eric Clapton’s blues guitar playing and vocals, Jack Bruce’s voice and prominent bass playing and Ginger Baker’s jazz influenced drumming.” from Wikipedia
The Brattleboro Selectboard would like to know what you think about the proposed solar farm along I-91. They’ve carved out time during Tuesday’s meeting to listen to your ideas.
If you go, you’ll also be able to participate in discussions of the skating rink compressor, local hiring, the town website, the Town Manager search process, various grants and permits, and other issues.
The proceedings are broadcast and streamed by BCTV, and you can read a wrap-up here the day after.

If you like miniatures and models, the Brattleboro History Center has a few new items you might want to see next time you come downtown.
Recent additions to the History Center include a large, colorful model of Ft. Dummer, a beautiful scale model of the covered bridge to Dummerston over the West River, and an HO scale model of the Newfane station and railroad buildings of the West River Railroad.
Many cars (at least 5) in the Pine Street area are were spray painted on Wed. night this week between 9:30-11pm, they also vanalized the granite pillars leading to Morningside Cemetery. More disturbing than that is the racial slur sprayed on a house on Pine St. the same night. I doubt it was directed at the home owner, as I think the house is vacant. What a shame to our neighborhood and community.
