ASAP likes to share the stories of people who help us fulfill our mission. This month, we talk with Amanda Clapp, a middle school science teacher at the Catamount School, a learning lab school operated by Western Carolina University in partnership with Jackson County Schools.
Fall may be settling in, but some summer veggies—from peppers to beans—can still be found this week at area farmers tailgate markets. There has even been a surge of green tomatoes recently. Unfortunately, the surge actually means winter is nipping at our heels. A hard freeze that will put an end to tomato plants is on its way. So, farmers are bringing any unripe ‘maters to market now. Snap them up while you can; they’ll be gone by the end of the month.
