There has been a renewed interest in home gardening and food preservation this summer. Growing and preserving your own food lets you enjoy delicious, locally grown fruits and vegetables throughout the year. Even if you do not have time or land to grow your own food, local farmers offer a wide variety of high-quality vegetables and fruit at farm stores, roadside stands, farmers markets, and pick-your-own operations. Ask your local farmer about buying a larger quantity of vegetables or fruit to meet your home food preservation needs and desires.

When I see log trucks on our local highways, I often think about where those trees came from. Are the woodlot owners happy with the results of their timber harvest? Did the harvest help them accomplish their goals and leave their land well positioned for future growth? In a timber harvest, it is natural to focus on the trees that are being removed. What types of trees do you have? How big are they? How much income can they generate? What are the markets for those trees?
