North Fork Bounty

Surrounded by saltwater and being the sunniest spot in New York State (yes, sunnier than the South Fork) makes for a long growing season.  This year was very good, not just for our few productive plants but for the wine grapes as well, and the sea provided it's usual bounty of shell fish, lobster and bay scallops all from our local baymen.

Lobster, will there be enough?
