Chelsea Nesbitt with Chris Dillon (Rec. Director) and Church Organizer
by Robyn Hatch This past Saturday, Hedgehog Park held a Family
Day for family and friends. This was the opening for the new season and included entertainment, games, ice cream, face painting, popcorn and swimming at Hedgehog Park. Chelsea Nesbitt, and her partner Cory Chiasson, played beautiful music under the tent. Chelsea is a recording artist from Canada and will be rounding up her tour all over the United States. This event was put together by the Salem Recreation Department, and Salem churches. This was a quiet, peaceful day and enjoyed by all who attended. Hedgehog Park, Lowell Road, Route 38, includes a pond, picnic
tables, a play area and a new skateboard park. No swimming is allowed when the lifeguards are not on duty. Stop by during the summer to enjoy a park that is close for all Salem residents, inexpensive and fun for the kids.

Cosmos Eat Your Vegetables
by Bill Dawson, UNH Cooperative Extension Master Gardener The phrase “eat your
vegetables” keeps ringing in my ears. In the time when I grew up, choosing whether to eat the vegetables on your plate was not open for discussion. If you refused, you gave up some more desirable item on the menu as well. Today, children are allowed more flexibility in the consumption of vegetables and it has led to some problems relating to overweight. I still eat my vegetables, but
now I grow my own. I have converted to raised beds for my vegetable planting. In late April, I plant my first crop of peas and lettuce. One of my beds is a rather large, cold frame, so the lettuce that wintered over is transferred to an open bed to make room for the spring crop. The crop that survived the winter, although a little bitter, is supplementing the store-bought romaine and has been doing so for more than a month. Fresh thyme and oregano as well as chives are coming from the herb area of my beds. Although you can’t make a meal out of those three, they add flavor and color to main dishes. I have motivated my wife to create a small herb bed. She, of course, needs a little assistance from me, the expert. She started some peat pots of parsley, basil, and cilantro. Later, she will plant some dill and mustard in another spot because of their height. The second week in May, I
put my tomatoes into big pots. I started the seeds in peat pots in late March and transplant them when they’re about five inches tall. I harden them off
in a planting bed that I use as a greenhouse until it is time to sow beans and spinach there. My greenhouse looks like a small Quonset hut. I create that effect by bending four eight-foot-long pieces of half- inch PVC pipe in a 180-degree arc, securing the ends with lag bolts inserted into the frame of the planting bed. I secure the apex of each piece of bent pipe to a piece of aluminum pipe with zip-ties. Finally, I drape a large sheet of 4-mil translucent plastic over the entire structure, securing it with zip-ties to the center pole pipe and allowing the sides to hang to the ground. The south- facing side of the plastic can be rolled to the supporting center pole so the temperature doesn’t go above 75 degrees during the sunny days. Total cost of that creation—about $10. It’s a poor man’s greenhouse. A couple of weeks ago, I prepped my strawberry bed. The weeds always seem to get a running start, so I have to spend a day or so crawling around on the ground pulling them out
one at a time. It does nothing for my dignity, but it is the most effective way because the alternative is bending from the waist. An hour of bending and I’d be ready for the emergency room and a shot of painkiller. Next week, it is potato- planting time. I will plant about five pounds in elongated hills. Usually, I plant some additional peas during the same week. Beans go in around Memorial Day. I plant climbers at the back of the bed so that they can be supported. In the front of the bed, I usually create double rows of green
and yellow-wax bush beans. As soon as I’ve figured out
what flowers have come up in the flower garden, I usually sow some lettuce, spinach, and Swiss chard to fill in and keep the weeds down. I’ve found that if you don’t give weeds room to grow, you don’t have to pull quite so many. Not your average flower bed, I agree, but it’s my flower bed. I consider it just another cutting garden. I can cut a few zinnias and harvest some salad greens at the same time.

Sometimes, the simplest words do the most justice. For James Folan, Sr., love and tender care come to mind when he thinks about his new way of life at Windham Terrace, a warm and welcoming assisted living community.

For many years, James cared for his wife in their Massachusetts home. When the time came to consider an extra level of service and support for him, his children suggested assisted living… closer to them, in New Hampshire.
It’s a feeling of love and tender care. James Folan, Jr., Lynda Brislin, Windham Executive Director, and resident, James Folan, Sr.
James, Jr. and daughter, Joanne, see how happy their father is living at Windham Terrace. James, Jr. believes it’s because, “Knowing that dad lives nearby, in a superb community, gives us a true sense of security and peace of mind.” And sometimes, that, along with a little love and tender care is the best feeling of all.
