Heritage wheat - Part 1

Heritage wheat - Part 1

I went to the Common Ground Country fair in Unity, Maine about a week ago and was very excited to find some heritage wheat samples for sale!  This is important to me because previous attempts at organic grain raising have proved unsucessful.  Mostly this is because weed control is difficult and the weeds overtake the wheat.  Modern wheats are quite short, perhaps only 18 inches high, which makes them ideal for harvest by combine but lousy at shading out weeds.  Heritage varieties grow 3-4 feet in height and are excellent at shading out weeds!  I got my samples from an organization called growseed.org.  Check out thier website HERE!  I picked up two varieties.  Emmer is a very old Egyptian variety that is still grown in Africa and the Middle East.  Banatka is more of a Baltic variety.  I'm doing both for diversity.  What I must do with these samples is plant a small quantity with large spacin

Bangor church celebrates 100 years

BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER)-- The Unitarian Universalist Society church celebrated one hundred years since the church was rebuilt after the Great Bangor Fire of 1911. The church was completely destroyed, but the congregation rebuilt it as close to the original structure as they could.

Sunday morning nearly one hundred and fifty members held a brief ceremony to remember what it took to rebuild the structure and the important role it played in the city.

Minister Becky Gunn said, "We have a longevity in this community that is so very important. The Universalist church in Bangor was the premier church. At one time it had over five hundred members and it would not have been the forward looking community, I think, if the church hadn't been here."
