    Traps and marshmellows

    My understanding is that they place the traps sometime after the vaccines have been dropped in order to test the raccoons for the efficacy of the vaccine. I couldn't find any notices that vaccines had been dropped in NJ this year, but that doesn't mean that they weren't. They could be trapping...

    Buzby's is up for sale.....

    They did turn a profit (and the food was good), but I heard a couple of different reasons why they didn't renew the lease. When I saw the sign up that Buzby's is for sale, my first thought was that I hoped that couple would buy it.

    Rails At Double Trouble

    I remembered reading an article that talked about the rails at Double Trouble, and actually found it. I couldn't find it online, so I'm transcribing a portion of it here. Any typos are mine. From the March 1991 Crew Caller, a publication of the West Jersey Chapter of the National Railway...

    Constructing a Pinelands Garden, Soil Question

    Cranberries can grow well in pure sand or in peat or in a combination of the two. Massachusetts cranberry growers tend to use peat; NJ growers don't. There are growers on the West Coast who use sawdust. An advantage to using peat or some other organic matter below a top layer of sand is that it...
