From a squizzly little seedling on top of the microwave in March to the star of the deck, this pink mallow is getting huge even though it shares a pot with some third generation petunias, which are no slouches themselves.

"Indian Pipe" (Monotropa uniflora). Found especially in beech woods, this parasitic plant is related to blueberries and azaleas. Many trees and fungi have a symbiotic relationship, involving the breakdown and distribution of nutrients through interconnected root systems. Indian Pipe attaches itself to the fungi attached to the trees, deriving enough nutrients that it has no need to photosynthesize. Isotopes injected into trees will show up in Indian Pipes, transported via the fungi. They are a parasite of a parasite. Nobody seems to know what insects are involved in pollination but pollinated flowers become erect and form seed capsules as they mature.

You might recognize him as "Dave Randall" from Law & Order, S7E11, but most people know @rusty.dewees as "The Logger". If you don't know him yet, check him out. People from places other than Vermont are smart enough to get his stuff. Today he did a free show in Weston, sponsored by @vermontcountrystore . The audience was small so, instead of performing on the flatbed of his big Mack truck, he came right out onto the green to tell stories and jokes, sing and play guitar. He was pretty good and it was all I could do to not laugh out loud.
