For the forager of wild foods, November brings cranberries, crisp and tart to suit the season. Cranberries are a wetlands obligate, meaning they grow in wetland soils, so keep a watch for these low, trailing plants when you're out exploring river edges and soggy lowlands. And then return in November for the harvest. Many berries survive through the winter freeze to provide a spring snack.

New Hampshire's only death row inmate, Michael Addison, got a very long day in court Wednesday.
New Hampshire's highest court held what may be an unprecedented hearing - more than five hours - to review Addison's trial and his death sentence for the 2006 shooting of Manchester police officer Michael Briggs.
NHPR's Josh Rogers was at the hearing and he tells All Things Considered host Brady Carlson about the day's events.
Iberdrola operates two other wind farms in the state. One in Lempster began operating in 2008, and was the first such project in New Hampshire, and one in Groton, pictured here from the banks of the Baker River in Rumney, is just coming online now.
Advocates and opponents to the latest proposed wind-farm got to ask questions of Spanish renewable developer Iberdrola last night at a town-hall meeting in Grafton. Though opponents were by far the most vocal in attendance.
This was the first of three meetings this week that Iberdrola has scheduled presenting a proposal to build 36 wind turbines a ridge between the towns of Grafton, Alexandria, and Danbury.
