Local Vermont Landscapes

Sue Tester

Sue is a life long Vermonter and a retired elementary teacher of 35 years who has loved taking photographs since she was gifted a Kodak Pocket Instamatic camera back in high school.

Most of her scenes are of local Vermont Landscapes and the occasional wildlife capture when she was lucky enough to come across them.

Along with landscapes, flowers and birds are also a favorite. She and her husband Bill have a tree farm in Barton and are fortunate enough to have Bobolinks that come back every year; she often spends time watching, photographing and listening to them out in the fiels.

Here are some on display at the Library:

Exhibits have been done by local craftsmen. Several are available for either a donation to the library or for a fee.

Many thanks to the owners who have given them to the library for showing in the gallery so you can enjoy the views of Caspian.

Wolf Peaches, Poisoned Peas, and Madame Pompadour’s Underwear: The Surprising History of Common Garden Vegetables with Rebecca Rupp

Common garden vegetables have long and fascinating histories. Science and history writer Rebecca Rupp will discuss the stories behind many of our favorites, among them the much-maligned tomato and potato, the (mostly) popular pumpkin, and Vermont’s dynamic duo of kale and Gilfeather turnip.

Find out why a lot of us don’t like beets, how a 17th-century pirate named the bell pepper, how carrots won the Trojan War, and how George Washington was nearly assassinated with a plate of poisoned peas.

Come early for a backyard potluck and chat with Rebecca from 11:30-12:45.

Sponsored by the Vermont Humanities Council
