The sixth annual Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors Show will feature boats in the
water, boats on land, fine furniture and home wares, the arts, architecture, and
delicious food. This event is Maine's only in-the-water boat show, and it is also
the only show to feature dozens of Maine's most talented furniture makers,
architects, and builders. Combined on one spectacular waterfront site, these
craftsmen present all the essential components for living the good life on the
coast of Maine. There will be hands-on demonstrations, live music, children's
activities, exhibits, and, of course, the ever-popular World Championship
Boatyard Dog® Trials on Sunday (only pre-entered dogs may compete, see for entry information). This show is a must-attend for
everyone who enjoys life on the Maine coast. Admission: $10 adult, under 12
free. Gates open at 10 a.m. daily. Please leave all pets at home; they will not be
allowed onto show grounds. The Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors Show is
produced by the internationally acclaimed Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors
magazine, now in its 21st year, published in Camden, Maine, since 1987. Call
800-565-4951 for more information.

Notes from the Heart...

Black Eyed Susans are one of my favorite flowers. I can't think of a flower that is
easier to grow, and yet looks so showy in the garden.  This week we're taking a
look at caring for these humble garden flowers which, incidentally, has also been
named as the flower of the year for 2008 by the National Garden Bureau.  ~M

This Week's Stories:

Feature: The Wonderful World of Black Eyed Susans
Black Eyed Susans, or Rudbeckias, are easy, low maintenance flowers.  They
prefer full sun for best blooming, but will tolerate light shade.  Other pluses are
that they tolerate some drought once established, and are deer resistant.  They do
need well-drained soil of minimal fertility, as too much fertilizer can make plants
flop.  These flowers are attractive to bees and butterflies, the seeds to birds.

Frittata with Fresh Garlic Scapes and Thyme...Cooked early while the kitchen is
still cool and served with a salad fresh from the garden, this recipe is the perfect
dinner for a hot summer night.
Banana Oat Waffles...Don’t have a waffle iron? This recipe is good for making
pancakes too. Also  good for diabetics, lactose intolerant and those with egg

From our Archives: Mt. Monadnock...Overrated?
Recently I decided to hike to the summit with one of my sons and see what all
the hullabaloo was about. I discovered far from being overrated it can be a very
demanding but rewarding experience.
