Wood is Good

If it weren't for The Summer of a Thousand Cheeses, I might not know how important this issue is to the American artisan cheese world. Wish I could be in Vermont for the "Wood Is Good" meeting tomorrow afternoon.

Here are a couple of links to catch you up on the story if you haven't been following it.

A Striped Mud Turtle

A striped mud turtle (Kinosternon baurii), pictured above, seen crossing through our back yard this afternoon. This species, restricted to the southeast, wanders farther from water than most mud turtles. By the way, our back yard is muddy after heavy rains, but is normally quite dry, as it was today. Temperatures were in the seventies, but may get near freezing overnight tomorrow.
