Feature: Winter Maintenance Tips for Old Barns
Do you have an old barn?  It's lasted this long ... make
sure you know how  to preserve it for many generations
to come.  Winter can be rough on old structures.  
Here are some tips from the NH Preservation alliance
on maintaining your old barn.

Garden: How to Order Fruit Trees
Winter is the time to order fruit trees from catalogs (to be shipped in the spring
“bare root”—no soil on the roots), and spring the time to find them in large pots at
local nursery outlets.  

Recipe: Chestnut Cake with Mascarpone
When the folks at Fitzwilliam Inn prepare this recipe, even chestnuts are local,
from Bloody Brook Farm in Deerfield, Mass., roughly an hour’s drive from
Fitzwilliam. Crème fraiche culture is from New England Cheese Making Supply
Co. in South Deerfield, Mass.
