Broccoli likes it cool; so do all the traditional fall crops. In too much heat, these hearty varieties “bolt” — go to flower — or, worse, they rot. In fall, the shortening days, the diminishing heat, generally causes growth to slow. And, yet, October was feeling like June: hot, humid. Tomatoes just keep coming.

Springs inhabitants can use Three Mile Harbor Road or Springs-Fireplace Road to traverse.

Or you can just watch the clowns go through their motions. At last look, this “pool” for children had ... by Staff Writer
