A Visit to Triple Chick Farm

One of my favorite summer farm stand stops is at the Triple Chick Farm in Town Hill, Maine.Whenever I am in Bar Harbor, I always try to visit Triple Chick Farm - they hand select their best, freshly-picked produce each morning, to sell at the stand. They grow the most lush vegetables and fruits, and all their produce is organic and chemical free. During my last visit, I stopped in their greenhouses to see what was growing. Their raised beds were filled with some of the most beautiful greens, including lettuces, cabbages and Swiss chards…

If you’re ever in the area, be sure to stop in at Triple Chick Farm – you won’t leave their empty handed. Enjoy these photos…

A Nice Dinner At Skylands

I love entertaining at Skylands, my home in Maine.

During my last visit, I hosted a nice dinner party for a small group of friends and neighbors. There was a lot to do before my guests arrived - cooking, baking, table setting, and planting. Fortunately, I had a lot of help, and everything went perfectly as planned. It was a very delicious and enjoyable dinner for everyone.

A Walk Around Jordan Pond

Whenever I'm in Maine, I love to hike the glorious trails of Acadia National Park!

One of my favorite treks is around Jordan Pond. The pond covers 187-acres, with a maximum depth of 150-feet. It's flanked on the west side by Penobscot Mountain, and to the northeast by two mountains called "The Bubbles". The pond is ringed by a walking trail, which I've done many, many times, and adore. The nearly four-mile hike is an excellent way to see and appreciate Acadia's glacially carved landscape.

During a recent trip to Maine, a group of colleagues and my three dogs, joined me for an early morning walk on Jordan Pond Shore Trail. It was an exhilarating hike for us all - here are some of my photos. Enjoy.
