Shade trees do not all necessarily shed their leaves in the fall (deciduous), but some shade trees are evergreen, and others can be classified as flowering trees. The fact that shade trees can cool temperatures in the surrounding landscape and cool off houses during the heat of the summer is well known. Some evergreen trees also provide shade all year, a factor that may be undesirable in some cases during hard winter freezes, when an evergreen shade tree may block off the heat rays from the sun that might melt snow and ice from a house roof or prevent infra red light from warming rooms inside the house.
Skilfully written, directed and acted, this offbeat British period film tells a story that catches our attention with its vivid characters and original setting. Based on real people and situations, it also rings unusually truthful in its combination of comedy and drama. It’s another remarkably observant movie from Danish director Lone Scherfig (An Education)..
Nothing tastes frozen and there is a lightness of touch that is missing in a number of area Mexican restaurants. (Think molten cheese destroying ancient Pompeii.)Let’s start at the beginning. D’Mexican is beer and wine only, but there is a solid and fairly sweet red sangria served in a mason jar ($5 or $9 depending on the size, with some deep discounts during happy hour), as well as a wine based margarita with fresh lime (also $5 and $9) that tastes 100 percent like the real deal.
Wolosin’s marketing savvy plays a role in his farm’s visibility factor: regular updates via social media outlets such as Facebook and Twitter indicate the growing goat love: veggies and goat meat are often available at local spots like Whip In, Wheatsville, Lenoir, Olivia, and Barley Swine. A recent image revamp features a new label: “a goat with seed eyes and a wheat beard to represent the whole package.” The wide array of products is wonderful, but Wolosin explains that their green practices and belief in freshness means the selection is sometimes limited. As many farmers’ market vendors are aware, competing with grocery stores is impossible because of the seasonal changes in available produce, but Wolosin believes this makes the beautiful yield of eating, shopping, and supporting local businesses a treasure.
