Got cukes? Make pickles Pick, pick, pick. If you want three words to describe growing cucumbers, that word comes close to the mark. If you don’t pick ripe cucumbers off the vine, the plant will stop setting fruit. But that’s putting the harvest before the hoe. T h e National G a r d e n Bureau ranks cucumbers one of the top five Melody most popParker ular garden is a master vegetables, gardener. designatContact her at melody.parker@ ing 2014 as “the year of the cucumber.” Members of the Curcurbitaceae family, cucumbers are related to pumpkin, melons, squash and gourds. Cukes can be oblong, globular or cylindrical, and while green skin is most common, you can grow white, yellow and brown varieties. Native to India, the cucumber has been grown around the world for nearly 3000 years, arriving in the Americas with Christopher Columbus. By 1806, eight cucumber varieties grew in America’s colonial gardens, according to NGB research. Heinz began bottling pickles in 1870 to relieve the boring meat-and-potatoes American diet. Russian cosmonauts have grown cukes in space, and Canadians have grown the veggie nearly one-mile underground in an Ontario nickel mine. I’m not a big fan of cucumbers, suffering them in salads and little else. Put me in the Dr. Samuel Johnson camp. The 18th century English literary critic, editor and lexicographer famously said about cucumbers, “They should be well sliced, and dressed with pepper and vinegar, then thrown out … ”. That doesn’t mean I won’t grow them (other people DO like them). Choose a variety that suits your needs: pickling or slicing, bush or vining, burpless or bitterfree. Monoecious cucumbers produce male and female flowers on the same plant. Open-pollinated cultivars are monoecious, as well as some hybrids. Pollen and fruitproducing flowers are on the same vine. No problem with pollination, but production can be later and slow. Gynoecious cukes produce predominately female flowers. Higher yield is the payoff, but there needs to be a male cuke for pollination. Seed packets have pollinator seeds, but if bees don’t zero in, you may have to pollinate flowers yourself. Parthenocarpic cukes produce only female flowers that don’t need pollen to set fruit, but if flowers are pollinated (those darned bees!), fruit can be misshapen. Cukes need full sun and well-draining soil enriched with compost or well-rotted manure. Plants are greedy for space, and vining types can be grown on a trellis or A-frame tower to save space, or grow bush types. Direct sow in rows or hills when soil reaches 70 F or purchase transplants They’re thirsty, so water deeply and mulch. Fertilize with a side dressing of 5-1010 fertilizer at planting and then once a month during the season.

Trip yields new pieces for WCA’s Haitian collection


WATERLOO —  Who hasn’t packed light to leave room for mementos from an exotic vacation? Usually it’s T-shirts, colorful tote bags, jewelry, souvenir plates or teaspoons or foodstuffs that can be carried through customs, along with odds-and-ends to satisfy kids and grandkids clamoring “what did you bring me?” Like those tourists, Kent Shankle and Chawne Paige stuffed their suitcases full for the return trip from a late January visit to Haiti. Except their souvenirs — glittering and beaded textiles, Voodoo flags, painted canvases, metal wall hangings, wood carvings, mixed media assemblages, papier mache and other objects — are destined for the Haitian collection at the Waterloo Center for the Arts. “We brought home lots of art in our bags and shipped more pieces home by air freight. One of the pieces is an incredible, large wooden drum with painting and collage by artist Atelier Onel. Spirits are associated with drums, which have an important role in Haitian ceremonies,” said Shankle, WCA executive director. For almost 40 years, the center has housed the largest internationally-recognized public collection of Haitian artwork. Shankle and Paige, recently promoted to curator, were in Haiti to attend the eight-day annual conference for the Haitian Art Society. Museum and arts center curators, gallery owners, collectors and Haitian arts and culture supporters toured the island, visiting with artists and others in Petionville, Port au Prince, Jacmel and other communities. Haiti’s minister of tourism told society members it was the first non-humanitarian group to visit the island since the 2010 earthquake. “We were given a wonderful reception by the people. It was an incredible experience, and we formed some lasting relationships. The center got involved with the society in 2004 to raise our profile and hosted the conference in 2008. This was the first time it took place in Haiti,” said Shankle, a previous visitor to the island. Paige was making his first trip. “It was so beyond what I expected. What touched me was recognizing how the people live in the here-and-now and are so closely connected to each other, and that there are so many artist

This piece shows how Haitian artists recycle materials such as buttons and discarded electronics to create sometimes unsettling, skull-themed artwork. enclaves,” the curator said. Haitian artists are incorporating earthquake experiences and aftermath into their work, which impressed Paige and Shankle. “Artists are seeing new things, processing new ideas. It was a rare opportunity for us to see the artists at work, to speak with them and experience their vision firsthand,” Shankle noted.

The country’s art has traditionally been imbued with spirituality and superstition, but several new acquisitions have “hard-hitting imagery with strong spiritual content,” Shankle said, which are expected to broaden and deepen the scope of the collection. “It’s cutting edge and tells the story of Haiti through the artwork,” Paige added.

Dr. and Mrs. F. Harold Reuling began the WCA collection in 1977 with their gift. It continues to grow through donor gifts and acquisitions, including 500 pieces from Janet Feldman. The Haitian trip was funded by an Iowa Arts Council grant. Artwork was purchased using grant money and private donations.

Come for tea, stay for lunch at revamped Art House Cafe JOHN MOLSEED‌

WATERLOO —  The corner cafe at the Waterloo Center for the Arts is open again. Tea specialist Eliz Guyer teamed with chef and caterer Scharlene Shumpert to open the Art House Cafe. The menu offers a variety of foods, sandwiches, salads, soups, pastries and other desserts as well as hand-blended specialty teas. Guyer has been blending and selling specialty teas at farmers markets but was ready for a change. “This last summer, I said I want to do something different,” Guyer said. About that time, Guyer hired Shumpert to cater her daughter’s wedding. The opportunity to partner and open a restaurant gave both entrepreneurs a chance for much more visibility. “Having a storefront puts me out in peoples’ faces,” Shumpert said. Peoples’ faces include patrons of the art center. That gives the cafe some extra traffic, Shumpert said. Art Center staff said the effect can work both ways.

Arthouse Cafe owners Eliz Guyer, left, and Scharlene Shumpert. “I think it’s definitely going to draw people who normally don’t come here,” said Laura Stammler, marketing manager for the art center. The cafe has been painted with warmer colors and the chairs have been reupholstered to give the space a new, warmer look. Staff at the art center also are excited about the new restaurant, Stammler added. The cafe had a

soft opening recently. Guyer and Shumpert plan a grand opening in the coming weeks. The preview went well, said Shumpert. Tea is made at the cafe with real leaves steeped in hot water and then strained into a cup. Although the process takes more time than dunking a tea bag into water, it produces more flavorful tea. Guyer also has her blended teas in bags for retail sale at the cafe.

She mixes tea leaves with herbs — often from her own garden — to make several types of teas. Guyer dries the herbs in a sack for several days and finishes them in a dryer. She then separates the leaves from the stems and blends them into tea varieties. With tea names including Mojito-inspired “Mo-tea-to” and “Ooh-la-la Oolong,” Guyer is trying to remove some of the pretense associated with tea drinking. “I want people to have fun when they try it.” The food menu has many inspired dishes made from recipes that won’t be easy to steal. “I keep them in the safest place,” Shumpert said, pointing at her head. Shumpert uses fresh ingredients whenever possible which takes extra effort this time of year. “You really have to shop around,” she said. “Most of this stuff is special ordered.” When the growing season returns, many of her ingredients and dishes will come from local producers, she said. The cafe is open Tuesday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Sons & Daughters of Thunder Waverly playwright’s docudrama headed to big screen MELODY PARKER


n her lifetime, Earlene Hawley has penned numerous scripts, including biblical plays and historical dramas. But she never dreamed one of her scripts would be made into a movie. Production is underway on “Sons & Daughters o f T h u n d e r,” a d o c u drama being produced by Emmy-nominated filmmakers Kelly and Tammy Rundle of Fourth Wall Films. It is based on a play Hawley wrote in the 1970s that tells the true story of anti-slavery debates at Cincinnati’s Ohio Lane Theological Seminary in 1834. “I’ve always been interested in history, certainly in the Civil War period of American history and the subject of prejudice,” said Earlene Hawley, 84, a long-time Waverly resident. Three years ago, a mutual friend passed the play along to the Rundles. Earlene’s husband, Kent, is serving as the film’s coproducer. The play was produced three times in Oregon more than four decades ago, Kent Hawley recalled, but they were surprised by the renewed interest. “We’re just very impressed with the filmmakers.

Filming at the museum took place 180 years to the day of the debates. The Beecher House is the only remaining structure on what was the seminary grounds. “It is such a thrill for us, and we are certain for the

Film will feature historic sites in Iowa and Illinois From page 2 Hawleys also, to watch Earlene’s story come to life in a movie format,” said Tammy Rundle. “There is something stunning about seeing 50 actors dressed in period costume take their places in beautiful historic sites from the 1800s. You immediately feel transported in time.” Kelly Rundle describes it as a “fairly complex story about the beginning of the end of slavery in America. What happened at the seminary is an obscure but important turning point in American history.” In 1834, the controversial debates, led by abolitionist and firebrand Theodore Weld (played by actor Thomas Alan Taylor), were the first to publicly discuss the end of slavery in America. The meetings angered Cincinnati residents and Lane Seminary officials, who promptly slapped a gag order on the entire student body. This action was followed by a freedom of speech protest and mass exodus of Lane students to Oberlin College. A young Harriet Beecher (played by acclaimed stage actress Jess Denney) was exposed to the debates and Weld’s work to free the slaves, sparking a flame that led her to write “Uncle Tom’s Cabin.” Shooting at the Beecher house was an incredible experience, Kelly acknowledged. “We were standing there in Lyman Beecher’s office with Janos Horvath who plays Beecher and Taylor who plays Weld, right where those people actually stood 180 years ago.

Earlene Hawley, left, wrote the play the movie is based on, and husband Kent has a co-producer’s credit on the film. It was surreal. These were people of faith disagreeing about this issue, and the reaction in the city was close to mob violence.” The film also will feature historic sites in Iowa, Illinois and Connecticut. The most recent debate scenes shot in the historic Jenny Lind Chapel in Andover, Ill., featured nearly 40 extras, including Renee Roiseland of Waverly. “I had a wonderful time participating in the making of the film. The cast and crew were phenomenal to work with,” said Roiseland. Hawley’s script underwent some changes, in

particular making young Harriet Beecher the main female character rather than her sister Catherine, an author and teacher who also influenced Harriet. In addition, the Rundles added a prologue and epilogue featuring Frederick Douglass’ famous Fourth of July speech from the 1850s. “Thematically it’s beautifully connected to our story. When we showed the first draft to Earlene, she told us that she first s t a r te d h e r r e s e a r c h for a play on Frederick Douglass. She gave up on the Douglass idea, but that research led her to the Lane Rebels story,” Kelly

Emmy-nominated filmmakers Tammy and Kelly Rundle of Fourth Wall Films plan to release their docudrama in 2015. Rundle explained. The Rundles are wellknown for making documentaries, including “Villisca: Living with a Mystery,” “Lost

Nation: The Ioway” and t h e E m my- n o m i n a te d “Country School: One Room – One Nation.” Making a docudrama represents a departure for

Fourth Wall Films. “We’ve gone from two people used to working by themselves to 60 cast and crew members. We made the decision to go in this direction because the story had already been dramatized. I’m continually impressed by Earline’s work,” Kelly said. P r i n c i p a l p h o to g ra phy continues through July. The film is slated for release in 2015 and will screen in independent theaters and film festivals. It will be released nationally on DVD, with broadcasts on PBS stations to follow. Tentatively film premieres are planned in the Quad Cities and Cincinnati.

Contact her at G r e e n melody.parker@ beans are a warm-season crop that develops quickly and depending on variety, yields harvests in as little as 50 days after direct sowing seeds. In Iowa, “Blue Lake” is probably the most popular green bean grown, the benchmark for all other varieties. This snap bean is available as both bush and pole varieties, and is compact and easy to grow. Dark green pods are plump and flavorful, and the yield can best be described as big. But bean counters also may find these four new offerings worth trying:  “Asparagus Red Podded” beans are certain to be conversation starters. The burgundy-red Asian beans are skinny, smooth and long, reaching up to 24 inches long on 10- to 12-foot vines. Flavor is described as a cross between a snap bean and asparagus. It’s recommended that the beans be flash-fried or stir-fried — not steamed.  Mascotte” is a 2014 All America Selection ideal for small gardens, patio containers and even windowboxes. AAS describes them as stringless, slim, crisp and true filet-sized with good bean flavor. The upright plants are diseaseresistant, and harvest is a lengthy span.  “Red Swan” is a cross between a purple snap and a pinto, according to Terra Organics. The stringless pods are 4- to 5-inches on bush plants. Harvest is 52 to 58 days after sowing seeds.  “Savannah” has been popular with market growers, and now has been highly rated by home garden testers. Dark green pods are said to be light,

sweet and tender. Picking is easy on bushy, upright plants, and t h e p i c king season is long. Seeds develop slowly in the pod so “beans stay tender and snap-able” for a longer harvest window, according to the National Garden Bureau. For even germination, green beans should be seeded directly when the soil temperature is warm, usually the first week in June for eastern Iowa (about two weeks after the last frost date). Plant seeds 1 inch deep and keep soil moist — not wet — until germination. You can soak bean seeds overnight for faster germination. The plants are shallowly rooted, but soil should be friable anda drain easily. Plant in full sun (garden or container). Bush beans are short, determinate plants, while pole beans are vining and should be trained on poles, arbors, fences or strings. Expect plants to grow quickly, although pole beans will lag a bit behind bush varieties. Feed beans organic fertilizers such as fish emulsion. Flowering beans are really quite

pretty plants, so enjoy them until beans are set. Green beans also are susceptible to fungal diseases, so plant only diseaseresistant varieties. Water regularly from the bottom to prevent leaves from getting wet.

Spacing is important, too. Plant 2 to 3 feet apart for air circulation and to keep diseases from being easily transferred between plants. And when that bumper crop arrives, pick daily to keep production high.

Waterloo Main Street completes Blue Zones pledge actions WATERLOO — Waterloo Main Street has completed the Blue Zones Project Organization Checklist, highlighting their longstanding commitment to Waterloo. The pledge actions they completed include offering healthy food options at

meetings when food is present, hosting well-being and educational events, promoting volunteer opportunities, adopting a tobacco-free environment and acquiring a bicycle rack to allow for active transportation. “We have worked with Blue Zones representatives

on a number of initiatives, most recently the Blue Zones themed Taste of ‘Loo event,” said Jeff Kurtz, Executive Director of Main Street Waterloo. “The buy-in from the downtown community has set the standard for the whole city. Restaurants, organizations, and local

government are all working to initiate the Blue Zones recommendations. Main Street Waterloo is pleased to be among the participants promoting this effort.” Main Street Waterloo was founded on the concept of economic development within the context of historic

variety of measures of their effectiveness in making roads safer and more accessible for everyone who uses them. Cedar Falls Mayor Jon Crews said, “Complete Streets are absolutely essential towards creating a healthier physical environment, an essential component of the Blue Zones Project.” Smart Growth America is the only national organization dedicated to researching, advocating for and leading coalitions to bring better development to more communities. The policy is one component of the Blue Zones Community Policy pledge.
