Vegetable boat report

When I first saw the article title "The Vegetable Boat," the first thing I thought of was the Maine tradition of using giant pumpkins as boats. Well, the story is actually much more normal than that, but still interesting!

Mainers are aces at finding footholds for non-traditional markets to sell their wares. From coolers left deep in the woods to sell trekkers ice cold sodas, to unexpected caches of unique handmade items tucked into the shelves of local convenience stores, to global marketing of innovative inventions, we've done it all.

The Vegetable Boat is reported on by the folks over at the Spoonandshutter blog, who sampled its wares at Pratt's Island dock this summer.
