The rich history of Connecticut seed companies

Connecticut has a long history in the seed business.

Little did I realize what a deep history Connecticut seed companies had until I began research for  "Connecticut’s Long, Rich History of Providing Seed for Growers" for Zip06/The Day. (Download the article at the end of this post.)

Dr. Mel's Connecticut Climate Book

Dr. Mel Goldstein was a much-loved Connecticut weather reporter and meteorologist whose humorous touch and insightful forecasting endeared him to state audiences. He passed away in January 2012.

If he's watching from his beloved clouds, he's probably less surprised than most at the megastorms that have visited in the past 15 years. His book, "Dr. Mel's Connecticut Climate Book" (Wesleyan Press, 2009), makes abundantly clear is that Connecticut gets varied and wild weather, more than might seem likely for such a small state.
