Picture a full garden’s worth of flavors: sweet corn, beets, sweet peas, arugula, fresh basil and even crisp green apples.
Now picture all of those varieties tiny enough to be pressed together in your fingertips.
This is happening right now on the North Fork, where Koppert Cress USA of Cutchogue is producing microgreens. Each one is packed full of fresh flavor and boasts more nutrition than varieties grown full size. (more…)

Several years back we sent a young reporter to Castello di Borghese Vineyard & Winery to interview owners Marco and Ann Marie Borghese for a profile.
When she returned, she couldn’t stop talking about how nice they were.
“Marco is the sweetest, nicest man I’ve ever met,” she said.
Those words have been repeated many times this week as members of the East End community mourned both Marco, who was killed Monday in an automobile accident on Route 25A in Wading River, and Ann Marie, who died a week earlier following a battle with cancer.

When I was in seventh grade back in the 1950s, it was my dream to own a transistor radio and a new set of golf clubs. The modest earnings from my Long Island Press newspaper route put my wish list items on hold.
Paul Pawlowski had a dream when he was in seventh grade of one day owning something far more grand than a radio and a set of golf clubs. (more…)
