Our Discovery Contest Finishes and a Grand Prize
Winner Announced May’s contest question: This plant found in our kitchen garden was a most important dye plant both in England and the Colonies. Its leaves produced an intense blue-colored dye but it also developed a most disgusting aroma during processing. Its pigment was frequently found on the faces of warriors. What is the name of this plant?
Congratulations to our May winners who became Peak Performers:
After the contest’s duration of six months during which there 18 winners, a grand prize winner’s name was selected to receive a $50 gift certificate from Brothers Marketplace. Seen below is Jeanette Ruyle receiving her prize from PHHC Director Rob Babson. Congratulations to Jeanette and every Peak Performer!
The Piggery Becomes a Colonial Vegetable Garden
With special thanks to our neighbors to the east, Matt and Emily Seminerio, and their willingness to share their corner land which was a piggery at their historic Morse homestead, a colonial vegetable garden will take shape over the summer and fall.
To further extend the Seminerio’s offer, foundation stones from the former Clark Tavern to the west will be used to build the borders of the new beds.
Keep your eyes on this area in the coming months to see a Colonial Vegetable Garden taking shape.
