We need more markets – and veggie eaters
Grist - 8/26/2011.
By Tom Laskawy – Earlier this week, I asked the question: How many farmers markets is too many? On a related note, this new study [PDF] looked at Americans' fruit and vegetable consumption – one of the main variables driving farmers market sales. How close do we come to eating the recommended five servings a day? Not very. Only about one-quarter of Americans manage it.
Forget potatoes: Idaho now grows CAFOs
Grist - 8/26/2011.
By Twilight Greenaway – When the Prevention of Farm Animal Cruelty Act (Proposition 2) passed in California in 2008, it granted laying hens nominally more space in their cages. Industrial egg producers – claiming their costs would go up – threatened to leave the state before 2015, when key portions of the law go into effect. Perhaps sensing an opportunity, Idaho lawmakers passed a series of laws more or less inviting the poultry industry to their state.
Gardeners urged to act ahead of Hurricane Irene
Village Soup - 8/25/2011.
Orono: Hurricane Specialist Stacy Stewart Sr. with the National Hurricane Center said that Hurricane Irene is "forecast to become a larger than average hurricane." This means its wind field, both of tropical storm-force and hurricane-force winds, will cover a large area. East of the storm's eye is where the strongest winds will be. With so much wind, UMaine Cooperative Extension Vegetable Specialist Mark Hutton advises gardeners to harvest tomatoes that are starting to show color, peppers that are of an adequate size and green beans that are ready for picking.
Farmers’ market with a twist: immigrants in Maine hope to cultivate customers
Portland Press Herald - 8/24/2011.

By Jason Singer – Portland: It's early in the morning on a beautiful summer Monday. In preparation for the farmers market in Monument Square, an employee from Risbara's Greenhouse sets up a tent near Congress Street. She puts out begonias and purple impatiens. The yellow petals of her brown-eyed Susans sparkle under the pristine blue sky. Once the tent is ready to go, there's only one problem: no other farmers and no customers.
