Now is the time to harvest your seeds for the seed exchange planned for March 2015.  We all have so much we can share with each other, and this will be a good start.  Just don't do what I did:  I left a packet of seeds in my coat pocket, went out in the rain, and now I own a chia jacket!

BRIGANTINE-The Federal Emergency Management Agency deadline for filing proof of loss documentation for Standard Flood Insurance Policy claims is Wednesday, Oct. 29. The date reflects a number of extensions that ultimately give policyholders up to 24 months from the date of loss, which may vary case by case depending upon when Sandy made landfall, but for the south Jersey area is almost invariably Oct. 29, as the storm passed over the area two years ago on that date.

For details see the FEMA bulletin on their National Flood Insurance Policy information site, http://bsa.nfipstat.fema.gov/wyobull/2014/w-14017.pdf.

The Brigantine Farmers Market held its Autumn Fest Saturday, Oct. 18 at Haneman Park.
