    I've been hearing from folks on East Waldo Road some frustration and surprise that the crew that worked on the small section of road near the old potato property never came back to cover the fabric they put down ...

    Those who live on East Waldo Road are probably excited about the road work going on midway down the dirt portion of the road, where they dumped all the large rock last spring. It looks like they are laying down new plastic over the existing road bed and bringing in new dirt over it. They’re also doing some true ditch work.

    The nights lately are filled with the sound of crickets; there must be a lot this year because I have had them crawling on my bare feet twice, something that has never happened before. We often hear the territorial canine call of the coyotes in the field; sometimes much closer, in the trees, just below our bedroom window. It is a sound that is so inherent to my experience on this land; it makes me feel instantly alert and alive.

    What a long, hot summer it is turning out to be! The signs of how dry it is are everywhere; the washboard that has developed on our local dirt roads, field edges turning straw colored, a notable dip in lawn mower activity, and so on.

    Hello and happy summer days, Waldo! We have been battling an array of garden foes this year, including a mother groundhog and at least one baby, and the occasional deer. We put up some chicken wire around some of the kitchen garden beds but are reluctant to fully embrace fencing as it would be somewhat jarring in our yard.

    June, for me, is often one of the nicest months of the year (right next to September). This year it has been especially dreamy. The breezy days have been perfect for keeping the bugs away, and we have had a notable lack of real heat; this is the first year in a while I have most of my transplants in the field and they haven't been fried upon arrival!

    May, to me, has felt better than all the winter months combined. How do we live without bare feet in the green grass, without leaves on the trees for half the year, or warm sun on our faces, arms, and legs, or sunny evenings outside with family and friends? I had almost given up on Maine this winter, and yet, in comes May hinting that perhaps there is nowhere else one could sink into satisfaction the way we so easily can, now.

    What a taste of summer we have gotten recently! As I drive around and see other local towns come to life, I can't help but again wish there was more in Waldo. Brooks has a food truck that's back for its second season. Wouldn't it be great to have food trucks on the town building property every Saturday and Sunday on summer weekends?

    For those of you who have never heard of it, No Mow May is a month-long event meant to support the bees and other pollinators by leaving dandelions to bloom. While this may seem like a "hippie" thing, the bees support our entire ecosystem (including all the food we eat, no matter where it is grown).
