World’s Best Foliage

After years of watching other states attempt to position themselves as autumn destinations, Vermont has

thrown down the gauntlet and declared itself the home of the World’s Best Foliage.

“No one does foliage better than Vermont,” declared Vermont Governor Peter

Shumlin. “Three-quarters of our state is forested, and we have the highest

percentage of maple trees in the country. With our flaming reds, blazing

oranges and glowing yellows, we have the most vibrant fall colors in the world.”

In previous years, states as far away as Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Arizona

have claimed their fall season was as pretty as Vermont’s.

“Clearly, we’re the bar,” said Megan Smith, Commissioner for the Vermont

Department of Tourism and Marketing. “Our fall advertising campaign will

articulate the myriad reasons we have the World’s Best Foliage. Our hope is

that people will be inspired to come see it for themselves.”

Smith added that Vermont’s fall campaign isn’t just about bragging rights.

Visitors spend $460 million during the foliage season, which represents about

a quarter of overall visitor spending each year. Nearly 3.5 million people

travel to Vermont in the fall to experience its unique working landscape of

bucolic villages, pastoral meadows, and forested hillsides.

To help visitors plan their trip during “peak” season, the state’s official tourism

website, www.VermontVacation.com, will offer weekly foliage reports, Best

Bets for driving tours, and a foliage tracker. The website will rely on information

from the state’s Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation and its commissioner,

Michael Snyder. Snyder is a well-regarded forester, and with over 30

years of professional experience, has earned the title of Vermont’s official

Foliage Forecaster.

“Predicting fall’s color changes is part science and part luck,” admitted Snyder.

“We know the science of color change and the factors that influence it, but we

don’t know exactly how it will unfold in any given year. The good news is, our

foliage is like a day on the slopes—when it’s good, it’s great. And even when

it’s a bit off, it’s still really good.” Snyder says Vermont’s abundant spring rain

and summer sunshine have created the right conditions for a spectacular fall

in 2019.

Senior Vacatio˜ I deas

Many people spend the bulk of their work lives dreaming of golden years spent relaxing.

There’s more to retirement, however, that lounging on the couch. Travel

planning can build in plenty of free time, and there’s just a much better view.

Here’s a few senior vacation ideas to get you up and out of the house.

DAY TRIPS

The easiest way to start traveling is to experience the wonders that are literally

all around you. You might be surprised by how much adventure awaits

within a day’s drive of your front door. Visit parks and museums and quaint

area downtowns. You might fi nd places to eat, shop and enjoy local entertainment

that you’d never heard of, while acting as a tourist in your home

state. And best of all, these trips are affordable for everyone, especially

those on a fi xed income.

BUS TRIPS

Want someone else to do the driving? Bus tours are a terrifi c option for

seniors, because you don’t have to worry about getting there. These tours

often take care of all of the planning and scheduling, as well. You can

bring people from your circle of friends or make new ones along the way.

Churches, senior centers and local tourism organizations can tell you more

about what’s available in your area.

DREAM TRIPS

Everyone has that one place, either domestic or international, where you’ve

always wanted to visit. Now’s the time. Begin budgeting early, and save

— then look for bargains. Budget airline travel and special package deals

can smooth the way, if you’re patient and persistent in searching for them.

Traveling is a great way to meet new friends, discover new things and unwind

in a new setting.

FAMILY TRIPS

If you’re like most seniors, you have family members scattered all over, as

siblings, children and cousins followed their career and relationship paths.

Why not schedule one long trip to see each of them, visiting one relative at

a time for short spare-bedroom stays? When it’s all said and done, you may

have seen a good bit of the country. Before you go, call local chambers of

commerce to fi nd out more about regional attractions, and ask for their event

calendars. There might be some solo adventures awaiting, as well.

Th˜ Joy of Sunflowers

By Bonnie Kirn Donahue

Extension Master Gardener

University of Vermont

Sunflowers are a fantastic, long-lived flower to celebrate the end

of summer. Now is a great time to observe sunflower plantings in

your community to enjoy their beauty and think about how you

might like to grow them next season.

Sunflowers (Helianthus annus) are multi-season plants with an

important presence throughout the year. In late fall, their colors

bring a brightness to the receding greens of the summer garden.

If the stalks are left up through the winter, sunflower heads dry

and provide seeds for birds and squirrels (and potentially entertainment

for you). Their strong structure also is infinitely interesting to

look at against the stark whites and grays of the winter landscape.

When browsing seed catalogues this winter to order seeds for

next year’s garden, consider the many varieties of sunflowers that

can be grown in home gardens in northern climates.

Sunflowers are easy and inexpensive to grow. They can be

started easily from seed and come in many varieties and colors.

Some are bright yellow with brown centers, while others are made

up of rich browns, oranges, reds, pale yellows and everything in

between.

Certain varieties grow with one large head on a single stem, and

others grow multi-branched with multiple flowers that fan out from

the center. Some grow a few feet tall, while others tower above

fences. There are so many options to explore and experiment with

in your landscape.

Sunflowers can be started indoors in late spring. However, if you

decide to start them inside, be careful. Sunflowers produce taproots

and don’t appreciate their roots being disturbed. Using pots

made of biodegradable material can help when transferring plants

from indoors to outdoors.

For direct seeding in the garden, wait until after the last frost in

spring to plant. Choose an area that gets full sun with well-drained

soil. Personal experience has shown me that woodchucks and

deer enjoy eating young sunflower plants, so keep this in mind if

you struggle with keeping these animals away each year.

I have tried fencing off whole beds or garden spaces and using

wire baskets to protect individual plants when they are young. This

has produced varied results, but in my experience, many of the

sunflowers that have been nibbled seem to bounce back.

Pollinators also are attracted to sunflowers. This makes sunflowers

exciting to observe in bloom from summer through fall. If you

watch for a couple of minutes, you may see many different insects

enjoying the pollen and shelter of a magnificent sunflower head.

Pollinators appreciate consistent blooms, so consider planting

multiple varieties of sunflowers that bloom at different times to give

the insects and bees an extended season to enjoy.

The strong structure of sunflowers also can be used in creative

ways. If planted next to each other in a line, they can be grown as

a seasonal hedge or fence line. Sunflowers planted in a circle or

other shape can become a magical and low-cost playhouse for

kids to enjoy outdoors.

As summer comes to a close, take a look at the sunflowers

around you and consider how you might like to utilize them next

year. There is so much to look forward to in next year’s garden.

Vermont Looks Forward to Autumn Visitors

The cool night temperatures of late August can mean only one thing. The leaf peepers are on the way.

Visitors come to Central Vermont for year-round enjoyment. The fall is

especially attractive, however. Tourists come for biking, hiking, hunting, and

shopping in our historic downtowns. You’ll find them visiting working farms as

part of our agri-tourism sector or checking out the artisans transforming a

block of granite into a beautiful work of art.

A check with the Vermont Department of Taxes for “Taxable Receipts” in

Washington County is revealing. In September-October 2016, $26,869,422

was spent on meals, rooms and alcohol. This compares favorably against

January and February ($24,405,619), June and July ($25,722,864) and

November and December ($22,804,400). Obviously, not all of that was spent

by visitors. However, we do know that visitors are a very important part of the

equation.

Earlier this year, the University of Vermont published its biennial report on

the impact of tourism in Vermont for the Department of Tourism and Marketing.

This year’s edition looked at 2015.

Overall, in 2015, “Tourism,” as a sector of our economy, was responsible for

8 percent of our state’s gross domestic product. According to the report, tourism

and recreation dollars are

largely provided by out-of-state residents. Visitors spent more than $2.6

billion in Vermont for the period. Interestingly, most of the visitors to Vermont

come from within a 500-mile drive.

According to the DTM, visitor spending contributed $318 million in tax and

fee revenue for the state.

This spending translates directly into jobs. Tourism supports approximately

31,000 jobs in the state. The resulting spending by those earners brings an

additional $750 million of economic activity to the state.

The average visitor spends about $850 per person when staying in commercial

lodging. Those staying in a second home spend about $500 per person

trip. Those on day trips spend about $70. Fall spending in Vermont is

about $116.77 million from September through November.

What does all of this mean for Central Vermont? Plenty. Central Vermont is

a prime visitor destination in the fall. While July and August are the months for

the highest meals, rooms and alcohol taxable receipts ($28,321,361), leaf

season runs a very strong second.

The tourism industry is a major sector of our regional economy. It means

good jobs in tourism and tourism-related sectors of the economy. Tourism

touches the local economy through millions of dollars in retail purchases.

Whether it is lodging, dining, attractions, outdoor activities, antiquing or checking

out the foliage, the lure to Central Vermont is real.

Visitors will be streaming in to experience fall’s splendor that we are able to

enjoy annually. While we undergo nature’s changing spectacle, we will also

enjoy a boost to the local economy. There will be more crowded streets,

hotels, B&Bs, shops, attractions, farm stands and farmers’ markets. It may

take a little longer to be seated at your favorite restaurant or pub. It all adds

up to fall in Central Vermont.

Remember, the activities and attractions are not limited to our visitors.

Make an effort to get out and participate in those things that our visitors from

around the world come to enjoy. Who knows what you may discover on your

own tour?

How to Shop for Antiques

BEFORE YOU SHOP

Know what you’re after before you even leave the house. It can be easy to

get overwhelmed and purchase too much or, even worse, the wrong thing for

your space. Keep your overall vision in mind as you peruse the wares. Make

a list or a sketch of your space to take with you as you shop so that you stay

on track.

Shopping for antiques also requires a little more preparation than your ordinary

garage saling trip. Antiques tend to be priced a little higher than your

average garage sale goods, so you want to make sure you’re getting the real

deal. Make an antique shopping kit to help you make sure you’re getting an

authentic antique. Include:

• Cardboard boxes, tie-downs, bubble wrap and blankets to protect fragile

items.

• Measuring tape to make sure it’ll fit in our space (and your trunk).

• Poncho and umbrella in case of rain.

• Wet wipes because antiquing can get dirty.

BEING NICE WILL GET YOU DEALS

While you’re shopping for antiques, remember that haggling is the norm.

Make sure when you enter a sale that you great the vendor nicely and act

courteously while shopping their wares. That way, if and when you negotiate

price, you’re starting out in a good position.

Begin the negotiations by asking the seller if that is their best price on the

item and if they would be willing to go lower. If not, be polite and tell them

that the price isn’t in your budget right now and move on. If an item has fl ws,

point them out nicely by asking them if they’ve noticed it and then ask if

they’d be willing to lower the price in light of it.

Vendors may be more willing to haggle in the afternoon or towards the end

of the sale when they’re thinking about how many items they’ll have to take

back with them. When you make an offer, have the exact amount you’re offering

in your hand and ready to pay.

BEWARE OF FAKES AND REPRODUCTIONS

Beware of reproductions and fakes when shopping for antiques. There are

some tricks you can use to make sure what you’re getting is the real deal.

Look for sterling silver marked with “9.25,” “Sterling,” “Sterling 925” or “S/S.” It

may be on the clasp or underside of a piece. If you shine a flashlight through

porcelain, you should see it shine through. Make sure you check each item

thorough for pests, such as bedbugs in upholstered pieces and check the

joinery on wood and pieces of furniture.

Perfect Apple for the Perfect Pies

It’s apple season. What better way to showcase the

delicious fl vor of apples than in a pie or cake?

Some apples are better made for baking than others. Here are the nine of

the best to consider. Should an apple variety prove a little too soft for baking, it

can always be turned into applesauce instead.

1. Granny Smith: These tart and fi m apples are probably among the most

turned-to for pie filling . Mix with a sweeter apple for a different balance of

fl vor.

2. Jonathan: These tart, tangy apples have been favorites for pies for years.

3. Golden Delicious: Goldens are less fi m than other apple varieties, so they

are good for individuals who prefer a sweeter, softer pie.

4. Jonagold: If you like the taste of Golden Delicious apples and Jonathans,

try this hybrid of the two.

5. Honeycrisp: These are sweet and slightly soft apples, but they won’t break

down much during baking. Grab these apples quickly because they have a

limited window of availability.

6. Winesap: The tough skin of these apples enables them to be stored for a

long time. Plus the fi m, white flesh holds up ell to baking.

7. Braeburn: These apples are known for their spicy-sweet fl vor.

8. Rome: These round, attractive apples have a mild fl vor, but hold up well.

So for a more intense apple fl vor, mix Rome slices with another variety.

9. Gala: Crisp, sweet Gala apples offer the perfect balance of fi mness for

pies. With natural sweetness, a baker can use less sugar than with other

apples.

Know Your Vermont Maple Products

WHAT IS THE BEST GRADE OF MAPLE SYRUP TO BUY?

Answer: The best grade of syrup to buy is the one that you like the best!

Each grade of Vermont maple syrup has the same density and clarity but the

color and fl vor varies. Vermont Fancy is the lightest grade in color and has

the most delicate fl vor while Vermont Grade A Dark is darker in color and

has a more pronounced maple fl vor. If you want to cook or bake with syrup,

it is better to buy the darker grades so that the fl vor of the syrup isn’t overpowered

by the other ingredients in your recipe.

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO STORE MAPLE SYRUP?

Answer: Maple syrup should be stored in a cool place until opened. Once

opened it must be refrigerated. For long term storage pure maple syrup retains

its fl vor best when kept in the freezer. Maple syrup will not freeze solid

and can be poured into smaller containers for use. If you purchased syrup in

tin containers, it is recommended, after opening, that you pour it into clean,

odor-free plastic or glass jars (like canning jars) and then put those into the

refrigerator or freezer.

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO STORE MAPLE CREAM?

Answer: Maple Cream is made from pure maple syrup which is cooked and

stirred to a cream consistency. Maple cream should be refrigerated when not

in use. If you plan to keep Maple Cream for any period of time before using,

put it into the freezer to keep the consistency and fl vor at its best.

If Maple Cream separates, simply stir the syrup back into the cream with a

sturdy knife or spoon. If the container of Maple Cream has been opened for

some time and has hardened, it can be restored by placing the container in

very warm water, being careful the keep the water level below the top of the

container, and stirring the cream, once it is warm, until it softens.

DOES TAPPING AND TAKING SAP

FROM A TREE DAMAGE IT?

Answer: Tapping and collecting sap do not harm the tree, if the guidelines

spelled out in the North American Maple Producer’s Manual 2nd edition

are followed. The North American Maple Project has monitored hundreds

of maples in Vermont for 20 years, and has found no significant dif erence

between the health of maples tapped yearly for syrup making and maples

that have never been tapped.

IS ANYTHING ADDED TO VERMONT MAPLE SYRUP?

Answer: Vermont maple syrup consists of maple sap, from which water has

been boiled off to achieve a density of 66.9% sugar. Vermont maple law

reads: “Maple syrup shall not be processed in any manner which adds or

removes naturally occurring soluble materials.”

Classic Images of Vermont

When you think classic Vermont, what comes to mind? Is it a combination of green rolling mountains,

Holstein cows, maple syrup, and covered bridges? These iconic images may be romantic, but there’s more

to the story than what you might find on a postca d.

By Katie Moritz

For example, ask someone from New Jersey and the Green

Mountains are just that: green mountains. But ask someone from

New Hampshire, and they may laugh and call them the “Green

Hills” (they’ve been spoiled by the White Mountains, we cannot

blame them entirely). But did you know that the rocks found here

are possibly some of the oldest in the world? They were formed

around 400 million years ago, when the Iapetus Ocean closed

up (this would later become the Atlantic Ocean) and continents

came together to create the super continent, Pangea.

As for Holstein cows, did you that when you drive by a farm and

you see cows grazing, each one contributes over $12,000 to the

state? According to a study funded by the Vermont Dairy

Promotion Council, the dairy industry brings in 2.2 billion dollars

of economic activity each year. And 63% of new milk comes from

Vermont. Did you also know that this industry is responsible for

somewhere between 6,000 and 7,000 jobs? When polled for the

study, 92% of Vermonters responded that dairy farms added to

the beauty of the state and 97% responded that dairy farms

were important.

As for that delicious maple syrup, it’s more than an awesome

way to doctor up some pancakes. It’s estimated that 25% of the

trees in the state are maple, and that the maple sugar industry

brings in around 15 million dollars in sales every year. But did

you also know that in 2010, researchers discovered that you don’t

necessarily need the top of the tree to produce sap? And that sap

does not need to flow downward? This could mean that rather than

trekking off into the woods to tap mature trees, grown wide with

thick branches, sugar makers could technically grow neat compact

rows of young trees and still produce syrup. The question then

becomes: is that really how we want to gather our sap?

I’m willing to bet some Vermonters will say no. Because it’s not

just about getting the job done.

For example, according to the 2005 Covered Bridge Manual, a

publication by the Federal Highway Administration, the only real

reason a covered bridge is, well, covered, is to preserve the

wooden parts from rot and deterioration. In the book, “Spanning

Time,” Timothy Palmer, one of the first American bridge builders

to put roofs on bridges, believed that covering them helped them

last for up to forty years. Hence, covering the bridge preserved it

so that people and animals could cross. It got the job done.

But is it not without note that the construction of the covered

bridge may have kept animals from being spooked when crossing,

for they would think they were entering a barn, and not

passing over furious waters. Or, an even more romantic a notion:

that weary travelers could rest for a moment when the weather

turned difficult.

Therefore, maybe covered bridges are so iconic because they

remind us that it’s not always about the destination, but the

journey.

There are just over 100 authentic covered bridges in the

state of Vermont, giving the state the highest number of

covered bridges per square mile in the United States.

It’s Officially M ze Season

If you are looking for a very unique, outdoor adventure this summer, then check out the Great Vermont

Corn Maze in North Danville, VT. The largest maze in New England opens for the season on July 30, 2022.

For the past 24 years, Mike Boudreau and his wife Dayna, spend their

winter designing a brand new, highly complex maze. Each spring they spend

3 months turning their idea into a massive 24 acre work of cornfusing art.

When asked where they come up with the ideas for their maze designs Mike

answers, “The picture we make in the cornfield is really just a small pa t of

the maze for us. We focus on changing how you solve the maze and making

it a real challenge more than the actual picture. Some years the trails are

more square, some years more swirly. Some years you have to go over all

of our bridges, some years the bridges are just red herrings. We change

everything every year. That is one of the reasons people keep coming back

year after year.”

This year’s theme was, in part, due to feedback the Boudreau’s received

from many hardcore fans.

“Now that everyone has some sort of fitness t acker on themselves, our

mazers keep sending us pictures of their fitness GPS apps orm their hike

through the maze.” Explains Dayna. “Most mazers hike 2 ½ – 3 hours and

end up walking 3-6 miles to solve our Big Maze. Some walk 6,000 steps and

some walk over 10,000 steps. So, we decided to use “20,000 Steps Under

the Corn” (because the corn is typically 10-12’ high) as our theme in 2022.”

While most young mazers will not remember the Disny classic movie of

similar name, they will enjoy finding the n w photo op sculpture the Boudreau’s

created out of fiberglas , to commemorate this year’s nautical theme,

in the corn.

But “corn maze” does not come close to capturing the experience that the

Boudreau’s have created on their family’s 5th generation family farm. They

make the massive 24 acre “Black Diamond” level maze with over 100’ of

What does “Vermont” mean?

French explorer Samuel de Champlain called the

Green Mountains of Vermont “Verd Mont” (green

mountain) on his 1647 map. Vermont’s nickname is

“The Green Mountain State.”

bridges, an underground tunnel and 28’ cabin cruiser floating on top of the

corn. As well as a smaller Scenic Maze, the world’s first Ba nyard Golf, the

PRETENDIN Play Area for little mazers with a kid village, 80’ Hay Castle,

Underground Tunnels, bouncy animal rodeo, Old Tread Tire Mountain, and

friendly goats.

The Boudreau’s also offer special event days as well. Their CONVER-

GENCE event is a one day LARP event (live action roll play). During Convergence

people come as a wide variety of characters and try to solve the maze

but it is not that easy. Along the way players/gamers trade for supplies, look

for and activate special powers, avoid time vortex portals that can speed you

forward or backward in the maze and try to avoid the roaming soul sucking

Reapers. This gaming event will occur on August 13, 2022 and tickets can be

purchased online.

Another extremely popular, annual event, Dead North – Farmland of Terror

has sold out for the past 22 years. This haunted event is a mile long walk

through a dark cornfield (dif erent from the maze) with numerous buildings

and includes animatronics, special effects and mostly live actors. As of

August 1st, this haunted event was already over half sold out.

And after you have all that fun and work up an appetite, you can buy farm

fresh, grass fed beef direct from the Boudreau’s son, Jake who manages

their family’s Lowline Angus Beef Farm. Pre-orders can be made online at

www.fourtownlowlines.com.

Tickets for the events on the Boudreau’s farm are sold online at www.vermontcornmaze.com

and some days sell out every year, so don’t wait until the
