    New Hampshire is a great sightseeing state.  There are bountiful wild flowers, ferns, and tall trees for miles.  As well as, breathe taking mountains, lakes, and ponds.  I was lucky enough to see a bear and female moose with her calf on my trip up north from Ohio this June.  It was a lot of hard work fertilizing the plots with double the fertilizer this year, but hopefully the data collected latter will make up for the effort.  Some of my free time was used in the kitchen.  I busied myself with a few recipes like chocolate almond chip and oatmeal n’ fruit cookie cakes.  I also did some crocheting and read some scientific papers.  We were lucky that the black flies were late this season and did not have to deal with them.  Only the mosquitoes were of a nuisance.  Even if you sprayed yourself with bug repellent, those boogers still tried to get to you or bite through your clothes.  I guess life is pain.  Hope everyone has a good summer and a good time in the field.
