Sale on Vegetable Plants at Sunny Garden greenhouse/nursery

I dropped by the Sunny Garden greenhouse (on Rt 9D near Stewarts)  with my wife on Saturday and decided to buy a few more cherry tomato plants.  I was happily surprised that ALL their vegetable plants are on sale! (my four plants, already with green tomatoes, were only 25-cents each!).  It appears that all the tomato plant varieties have green tomatoes, so if you thought it was too late to plant, it looks like this is your opportunity to catch up!  I don't know how much longer they will have…

Hi Steve,

Good to see you today.  Sorry we were interupted and we didn't get a chance to talk.  Hopefully we can catch up soon.  Maybe you and Virginia, Jim and I can go out for coffee or something soon.

You're right in pointing out that climate change science has indeed become a dramatically and harmfully partisan issue in this country. But perhaps not in the way that you meant it. Given the U.S. GOP's unique stance on anthropogenic climate change within the global array of conservative parties, it seems strange to say that it's been the left that's been out on a limb.


I include a quote from a recent article in the National Journal about the


"Just for the record, when the nonpartisan National Academy of Sciences last reviewed the data this spring, it concluded: 'A strong, credible body of scientific evidence shows that climate change is occurring, is
caused largely by human activities, and poses significant risks for a
broad range of human and natural systems.' Not only William Hague [UK’s conservative Foreign Secretary] but
such other prominent European conservatives as French President Nicolas
Sarkozy and German Chancellor Angela Merkel have embraced that
widespread scientific conviction and supported vigorous action.

Indeed, it is difficult to identify another major political party in any
democracy as thoroughly dismissive of climate science as is the GOP
here. Eileen Claussen, president of the Pew Center on Global Climate
Change, says that although other parties may contain pockets of climate
skepticism, there is "no party-wide view like this anywhere in the world
that I am aware of."
