‘Weed Dating’ aims to sow seeds of rural romance at Common Ground Fair
Bangor Daily News - 9/18/2012.
By Abigail Curtis – Unity: Ah, farming. The romance of the fields; the beauty of the land. But sometimes it can be lonely at the (garden) plot. That’s why young orchardist Eliza Greenman of Mercer is organizing a special, free event at this weekend’s 36th annual Common Ground Country Fair: “Weed Dating.”

Kennebec Journal - 9/18/2012.
Letter by Richard Rudolph and Nicole Karatzas – The biggest item on Congress' to-do list is how to deal with the farm bill before it expires at the end of September.
