Welcome to The Mud Room, a joint commentary project of Rumble Strip Vermont and The Dooryard.
In this first commentary we bring you Walt Amses, a writer and former educator in North Calais, Vermont. The essay is called The 17 Dollar Tomato, and it welcomes us to the special tyranny of gardening season in Vermont.
Send us your tired and poor
We want to hear your stories of gardens past and present. Your failed attempts, your bolted greens. Tell us about your woodchuck problems, your canning burns, your rotten tomatoes, your garden rock collections. Or maybe some trick of equanimity you know, that might help us all. Comment below. We love to hear from you.
