Blog Log: The week in local blogging

Summer’s in full tilt, and it has grabbed the blog world by the lapels. For many bloggers, like Moon Meadow Farm, for instance, that means vacations. Even bulls are wandering into new pastures, according to BlueRidgeBlueCollar Girl.

But summer has its own delights here at home.

As Hendersonville Epicurean points out, in the midst of all of our great dining options, sometimes you just want a hot dog. And Carolina Mornings is celebrating the arrival of Watermelon Day.

Meanwhile, summer brings frequent and sudden thunderstorms, but George the Bastard doesn’t seem to mind much.

It’s a good season for sitting under trees. Asheville on the Ground continues its vigil beneath the magnolia at City/County Plaza and is reporting back on interesting conversations there.

If this event over at Sounds Pretty is any indication, handmade is getting hip.

Speaking of crafts and hobbies, if you ever want to dive into the suspense and intrigue of model-train building, Grit Speak is the place to go.

A Year is Asheville is a good destination for photos of the local busking scene. This booth, for instance, is targeting the hard-to-reach one-eyed market.

And this week on the commentary front, Arratik opens the funny pages to see what they say about Asheville.
