Early this May we purchased a square raised container to plant peppers and tomatoes. We would much prefer to compost and till our own plot of land, but we live in a rental townhouse, and so our humble front porch garden will have to suffice this year.

Summer’s Best Music Fest concluded on a high note with Pittsburgh-based Salsamba, the featured band of the evening. The audience was treated to high-quality jazz music that you could really groove to.

Audio Imagery was among the music acts at Summer’s Best Music Fest in State College this past weekend. It was their second appearance at the annual event, and they were listed as a rock band based on their lineup from last year. Their current incarnation, however, is more accurately described as pop hip-hop with some 80s synth leanings, and deriving their influence from the likes of T-Pain and OutKast (but without the auto-tuner, thank God).

Domenick Swentosky started off slow with songs that were long, meandering, and—if only for the moment—uninspired. Audience members stretched their necks straining for a closer look, as if they expected the problem to be readily visible—perhaps a broken string or malfunctioning amp.

During a season that causes your legs to stick to the seat of your car, you may be likely to turn on the air-conditioning and stay indoors.
But not this weekend! The 4th Annual Summer’s Best Music Fest & Street Bazaar, everybody’s favorite pre-Arts Fest fest, comes to State College.

A traditional chocolate cake with fluffy white frosting is a fine dessert choice, but during the month of June, why not choose a seasonal strawberry shortcake cake?

A raw food diet includes more than just carrot and celery sticks. Rather, envision a pile of raw zucchini noodles topped with garlic scape pesto, bell peppers, and sesame seeds. Or how about a kale salad with Thai curry pineapple crème, sugar snap peas, and green onions?

Strawberry season is a short one. Or perhaps it’s no shorter than blueberry season or blackberry season, but because the strawberry is my favorite fruit, its season just can’t be long enough.

Root vegetables aren’t just consumed during cold weather. The radish is a root vegetable that is available in Pennsylvania during the months of May, June, July, and September. It is during these warm months that the crop is at its sweetest.

The North Atherton Street Farmer’s Market has been in the works for years and, finally, it is a reality. The market provides customers another location (in the Home Depot parking lot) and another day (every Saturday) to buy local foods.
