Scarecrows popping up!

With Halloween just around the corner, businesses participating in the Rehoboth Beach-Dewey Beach Chamber of Commerce’s Abnormal Scarecrow Decorating Contest have begun displaying their entries. Participating businesses are located in the 19971 ZIP code.

The three scarecrows with the most votes will each receive one Sea Witch sponsor package, which includes a numbered and authenticated piece of the original Sea Witch parade balloon, a limited-edition Sea Witch cloth face mask, a youth- or adult-sized 2021 Lobster Monster festival shirt, and a 20/21 festival pin.

A flavorful fall treat

By Denise Clemons
During the pandemic, our local famers markets have done an excellent job of providing a safe environment for us to purchase fresh local produce, meat, poultry, fish, cheese and a variety of prepared foods. And, for those who are not quite comfortable venturing out into a group setting, Hattie’s Garden offers a consolidated delivery service to bring all these items to your door (or you can collect them in her driveway).

For the past few weeks, she has offered bunches of baby turnips, one of my favorite fall root vegetables. Related to radishes and arugula in the mustard family of Brassica, turnips can be served in a variety of ways. First, the leafy greens, which will turn tender and tasty after a quick sauté. The other part, the small bulbous root, can be served raw or cooked.
