Snapper Fishing

The snappers are here! If you like to fish this is the time to grab a pole and get down to the docks. Here's how to catch a boat load of snappers.

I love the way cherry tomatoes grow all in a row like this.

Tomatoes! This is the time of year when vegetable gardens really start to look good. A lot of backyard gardeners had trouble with slow growth and disease caused by all the bad weather we had earlier in the season. That seems to be past us now and hopefully from this point on our gardens will look good and taste great.



On Friday, September 11, 2009 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. you will have the unique opportunity to stroll through the luxurious gardens and properties of some of the most prestigious and interesting homes in St. James, Nissequogue, Head of the Harbor and Smithtown.

COTTAGES TO CASTLES, a house and garden tour, is being hosted by the Smithtown Garden Club, the Smithtown Historical Society, the Smithtown Township Arts Council and the St. James Chamber of Commerce.

A donation of $70 gives you entree to the private homes and includes a sumptuous hot and cold buffet luncheon at Flowerfield, 11 a.m.-3 p.m. If you prefer, you may visit the homes for $45, lunch on your own. Non-refundable tickets are limited and must be purchased in advance.

Make your check payable to COTTAGES TO CASTLES and mail to 239 Middle Country Road, Smithtown, NY 11787. Your ticket(s) will be mailed to you just before the event. No children under 12 please. Wear comfortable shoes and be prepared to walk.

For additional information, please call (631) 265-6768.

I had two great ghost stories submitted last month.

Cheryl Hall spotted the ghost of whaling captain's widow one evening in Sag Harbor.

Alyssa DiBartolo retells the story about her dad's friend who moved out of a haunted house the day after he moved in.

Remember, anyone can submit a story for publication on If you have a memory to share or a tale to tell, then please do.
