Notes from the Heart...

We've gone from chilly damp weather in the 40s to balmy tropical weather in the
90s.  It has been a frantic weekend, putting screens in the winter, installing the air
conditioner, finding all the fans and quickly throwing on our summer clothing.  
We should have known...that's the way summer always arrives here in northern
New England.  ~M.

Horehound Drops, Bit-O-Honey Bars, Peppermint Puffs, Clark's Teaberry Gum
and Brach's Sundaes Neapolitan Coconuts....

Recipe: Asparagus with Wild Ramps
Ramps grow from southern Canada to the mid Atlantic states and are members of
