While it may be hard to envision the onset of winter when current autumn days are sunny and unseasonably warm, those of us who have lived in the North Country for a spell know what nature has in store. So does our home-improvement guru, Robert Pelletier. In “Trimming Your Home’s Winter Energy Consumption,” he offers a passel of tips for heating up the house without spending down your life savings.
Another timely piece is “Fall in the Perennial Garden” by Dr. Leonard Perry. If you haven’t already done so, now is the time to start getting your perennial garden ready for winter and next spring. From dead-heading, de-leafing and weeding to cutting the sod, adding compost and edging your beds, the Good Doctor will guide you.
October is harvest time, and that means thoughts turn to good, hearty food and drink. Laura Perras travels to downtown Ticonderoga, New York to profile Libby’s Bakery and Café. Everyone should have a Libby’s: a place for socializing with old friends and meeting and making new ones that’s not home or your workplace.
