Three wines to stock up on for Thanksgiving, plus 2 more to sip on warm days
Deb Lindsey for The Washington Post
The weather has me in a weird mood. Sunny days have me pining for the summer that never was and enjoying two delicious late-season rosés, from southern France and Macedonia. (You don't abandon rosé after Labor Day, do you? Good, me neither.) And the cool evenings have me hankering for wines with more heft. I'm not good at advance planning (just ask my editor!) but the first three wines in this week's list would be ideal for Thanksgiving. The two from Left Foot Charley - one of my favorite wineries - have two strikes against them: They are unfamiliar grapes and they come from an unfamiliar region. They are also new to the market, so don't be shy about asking your favorite retailer to order them. And stock up f... Oct 12, 2018
Aldreamer Smith creates an oasis of flowers on her 'holy ground' in Old South Baton Rouge
Each family member had a lot with their little garden."When Smith was 11, she moved to Baton Rouge to live with her grandmother on East Washington Street, not far from where she lives now. She and her late husband, John, operated an upholstery business, John's Upholstery, in a shop behind the house. There wasn't enough room for a garden, but there was a vacant lot next door. "I started coming here and digging and planting, but I didn't know who the lot belonged to," she says. "I started planting flowers, all the time praying that the person who owned the lot would come forward."One day, her prayers were answered. The owner showed up."Believe it or not, I knew him, and I knew his mother," she recalls. The owner, who lived in Detroit, wanted to sell the lot."My husband and I went to the bank and got the money and paid cash for this lot," says Smith, who calls the lot "holy ground" because she worked and prayed there.The Smiths had friends who were bricklayers and carpenters. They laid a brick patio and built a covered deck at the center of the lot."My husband used to like to sit outside," she explains.The yard is laid out in flower beds around a manicured lawn. To one side are seasonal annuals like black-eyed Susans, zinnias and a huge stand of bright red coxcomb interspersed with an occasional azalea, hydrangea, verbena and miniature rose. On the other side are masses of Mexican petunias that reseed every year."I just love blue flowers," Smith says. "They are my favorites."Can't see video below? Click here.A large camphor tree at the back of the property and a pine that provides some shade to the deck are the only trees in the yard. Behind the deck are pots filled with coleus in different colors surrounding an area that originally was filled with ferns."I had ferns here for years, but this past winter, they almost all died," Smith says, "but they are beginning to come back." The cold winter also killed her cactus garden in a courtyard a... Sep 10, 2018
GREENFILE COLUMN: “Farmer-Florists” Fresh, Local Cut Flowers
While today there is a vibrant community of farmer-florists close to home, the current trend traces its roots to the Skagit Valley in Washington State. In 2008, Erin and Chris Benzakein established Floret Farm which started as a small business of cut flowers which quickly spawned a full-fledged research and education farm and a popular book, Floret Farm's Cut Flower Garden. This title is considered equal parts resource and inspiration for many of the growers who call themselves farmer-florists today.
In Canada, Melanie Harrington established Dahlia May Flower Farms on her family farm in Trenton, Ontario after reading Benzakein's book and deciding to take a workshop on Floret Farm in Washington. With over 60,000 Instagram followers (@dahliamayflowerfarm), Harrington has no problem marketing her sustainably grown, unique and often heirloom varieties from her roadside stand to local florists.
The beauty of flowers, of course, is that they sell themselves. "A lot of trends from the local-food movement are definitely spilling over", Melanie told Ben when he dropped by the farm where she now produces row upon row of colourful flowers for cutting. "A handful of commercial greenhouses in the Niagara area have also been switched over to marijuana production, which puts a crunch on supply of greenhouse space. There's a lot of trends coming together, but I'm just happy to focus on what I enjoy doing – being creative and growing beautiful flowers."
Located in Thornhill Ontario, Antonio Valente is a perfect example of how the farmer-florist ... Aug 17, 2018
Jets camp Day 13 observations: More fights, terrible penalty and some surprise standouts
Rashad Robinson chirped with tight end Cam Sims after breaking up a pass. Jets offensive lineman Jonnothan Harrison got into a verbal battle with Washington's Zach Brown, who could be heard yelling threats. Jets offensive lineman Dakota Dozier and linebacker Ryan Anderson got into a shoving match, as did Jets defensive end Nathan Shepherd and Washington offensive lineman Shawn Lauvao.
And at one point the entire Jets offense and Redskins defense came together in a skirmish, though no punches were thrown.
