COMMENTARY: What the drought means to Concord's plants, animals
The combination of low rainfall and sunny, hot days has dried out Concord’s landscape, baking the soil, exposing the shores of Walden Pond and reducing the flows of streams and springs.
What does this mean for the plants and animals?
Many observers have noted that lawns and unwatered playing fields are brown — grasses are not able to survive the drought. Numerous shrubs and trees in yards and along streets have died or their branches have withered. In the Walden Woods, the forest has an autumn look as the leaves of the black birch trees turn yellow and drop off from drought stress. In open spots, wildflowers like goldenrod and aster have drooping leaves and have stopped producing new flowers. Even if the rains resume, these plants are finished for the year.
For vegetable gardeners, the hot weather is good for tomatoes and beans, but only for gardeners willing to water their plants several times a week, like Eric Nelson who grows heirloom tomatoes at the Hugh Cargill Community Garden. The Barrett Mill Farm can survive the drought because it irrigates using its own water supply. However, commercial farmers who rely solely on rain will face a dismal harvest. Many of Concord’s agricultural fields are simply dried up and desolate, with stunted corn stalks and wilted pumpkin plants. Throughout the region, the crop of apples and other fruits is poor, due the combination of summer dr... (Wicked Local Concord)Aug 29, 2016
Groundnut has odd flowers, can be eaten
Native Americans and colonists for food. Henry David Thoreau poetically wrote about his experiences with groundnut at Walden Pond. He described its “crumpled red velvety blossom” and recorded the tubers have “a sweetish taste, much like that of a frost-bitten potato, and I found it better boiled than roasted.”
Groundnut tubers may be eaten raw or cooked.
As a garden plant, groundnut can be aggressive and spread readily, popping up where you may not want it and twining into shrubs and perennials where it is hard to remove. If you want to grow it in your garden, grow it in a large pot or barrel or in an area off by itself. It is easy to grow from seeds.
With breeding and selection, perhaps this interesting plant will one day become a domesticated food crop and assume a place of honor along with corn, pecans, muscadines and other New World offerings.

Decor goes tropical this summer
Blanche even had that famous palm wallpaper in her bedroom.”
For her Nashville, Tennessee-based studio, Peacoquette Designs, Sarah Walden has created a striking palm-leaf print. With the leaves printed on a teal blue background, the design has a historical vibe. On a coral/pink background, it looks more midcentury modern. It’s available on several different fabrics, or as wallpaper. (www.spoonflower.com)
A palm-printed pillow can freshen a sofa or chair. You’ll find a collection of throw pillows and shower curtains with big, bold palm-leaf prints at H&M Home. (www.hm.com)
Add a few inexpensive rattan pieces; the textures contrast nicely with contemporary furniture’s trim lines, and bring homey charm to more bohemian spaces. Rattan also works as a foil for both bright and neutral hues.
Pottery Barn’s Beachcomber collection includes sea grass, rattan and abaca fibers woven into chunky baskets. (www.potterybarn.com)
A little rattan bar cart is part of Target’s summer Threshold collection. (www.target.com)
For color beyond foliage green, consider sultry hues like orchid, banana and passion fruit. Go beachy with a palette of tans, creams and grays.
Overstock.com has Tommy Bahama’s Tropical Hibiscus throw pillow and a chic white pineapple table lamp. Flamingo-printed sheets bring the theme into the bedroom, and the pink bird struts across a preppy-striped rug.
Kate D. Spain, based in Bridgeport, Connecticut, has designed a woodblock print incorporating exotic blooms, leaves and vines. The limited edition artwork comes in ocean-y hues of turquoise, blue and violet. (www.shopkatespain.com)
Antique scarf prints of tropical flowers and birds have been reproduced as canvas wall art at Pottery Barn. And Grandin Road has a set of four vintage-style parrot illustrations for wall art. (www.grandinroad.com)

Antiques, arts and flowers: five fab things to do, see and shop in Cambridge this week
Audley End this Thursday.
The BBC Antiques Roadshow team, including ever-lovely presenter Fiona Bruce, are filming at the Saffron Walden stately home from 9.30am-4.30pm - and they're asking everyone to bring their family heirlooms/auction lots/car boot finds along for valuation.
You never know: you could be sitting on a FORTUNE. Plus there's a chance you'll get on telly.
Ah, we love a yarn bomb. What better way to draw public attention and make the place look pretty at the same time?
If you're a whizz with knitting needles or a crochet hook, staff at Cambridge's Sheep Shop want to hear from you. To raise awareness of sexual violence – and highlight the vital work of Cambridge Rape Crisis – they're staging a bomb titled Flower Power: Rhapsody in Bloom in the city this summer.
Featuring woollen Rhapsody clematis flowers, the aim is for one in every five blooms to be dark blue instead of purple, representing the one in five women, aged 16 to 59, known to have experienced sexual violence.
Getting involved is easy: The Sheep Shop is running a series of drop-in stitching sessions – the first is next Saturday, May 28 – and local designers Liz Marley and Emma Field have created a selection of clematis flower patterns, free to download; you'll find them, and al...

TIMBERLINE, a white faced filly well ridden by Sheena Ryan. By Old Forester, the Rachel Halden trainee is a homebred for Chris Harris.
race 7 – GREAT START, well named for trainer Nick Nosowenko as he is indeed off to a great strat. This gal was dropping fom 40,000 to 20,00 claiming for her 2nd start since last summer and she won big under a hot Alan Garcia. Michelle Newell owns the 4yo filly by Jump Start.
race 8 FRENCH QUARTER was the 2nd winner for Gerry Olguin as that rider took over from a litany of different riders who have been on this Norsemen.John Mattine gelding. The Florida bred tracked the rapid pace of Bear No Joke, took over turning for home and held off Cumming Road in 1:10.62 – a 94 Beyer Figure.
race 9 – LORD OF GREATNESS, well named and a 10-year-old entire horse, was claimed away from his long time trainer Robert Tiller and the Entourage Stakes in May 2015 for $20,00. He won for the 3rd time since changing barns when he took a $6,000 claiming race on Friday for his 18th career win. Jesse Campbell rode the old timer for Peter and Willie Armata. It was a tough race for the old guy but he looks great and he is closing in on $600,000 in career earnings.
The best news came after the race when it was announced that Robert Tiller had claimed the horse for $6,000.
FIRST FRANKEL IS FABULOUS…but what about this photo? Wow!
Cunco (city in Chile), the first offspring of the mighty Frankel’s to race, got his sire off to the perfect start when coming from behind to win a six furlong maiden at Newbury this afternoon.
Trained by John Gosden, Cunco was settled behind runners by Robert Havlin before quickening well inside the final furlong to get up near the line. The Chesham Stakes at Royal Ascot could be on the agenda for the Clarehaven inmate now.
Owned and bred by Don Alberta Stable, Cunco did just his sire did – he won his debut on a Friday the 13th!
GETTY IMAGES – JULIAN HERBERT captured this image of CUNCO before his debut – watch your toes!! This is such an amazing photo from all aspects that I had to borrow it – congrats Julian, could be an award winner
