  It's Corn Maze time at Plasko's Farm located at 670 Daniels Farm Road, Trumbull CT, just up the hill from Hillcrest Middle School. This year you can try to 'Defeat the Dragon' as you make your way through the maze which has approximately 1½ miles of bewildering turns, twists, and the frustrating dead ends. Think you might get lost?  You're probably right.   However, there are ‘corn cops' stationed at strategic points throughout the maze to help those who have taken the wrong turn or are caught in a continuous loop of getting nowhere fast.    NOTE: The Dragon Maze is open to the public Saturday and Sunday from 9-6.   The Farm, which is open daily from 9-6,  also offers a country store, bakery and indoor farm market.  Be sure to try their apple cider donuts voted best tasting in Connect...

 Last month I reported that Trumbull CT homes sales had 'jumped' in July.  They jumped again in August, but off the cliff.   See annual chart below for the visual. History does repeat itself though. A little further research shows Trumbull's highest sales month to be July and if not, sales carried into a better August.   Trumbull CT home sales for August 2015 showed a 16% decrease in sales from the same period last year.  The average listing and selling prices for August were down 5% and 4% respectively as compared to August 2014.   The median home price was down 8%. Going forward, there are 42 homes under deposit and 36 sales pending. Days on the market went DOWN 9%.  The market absorption rate went up a few months to 5.81 which is statistically  in a seller's market.   This means at t...

 For almost every year since 1972, the Town of Trumbull CT has held Trumbull Day typically near July 4th.  I have attended many, many of these celebrations, and they have always been well planned and delightful from beginning to end.   Starting this year, September 12 and 13, 2015,  the celebration will take on a new identity as the Trumbull Fall Festival, a family event highlighting the town's people, local organizations and non-profits.  The venue of the fall festival will be the same as Trumbull Day  -- on the fields behind Trumbull High School and will feature a carnival, including ferris wheel, pirate ship, and my favorite.... bumper cars among many others.  There will also be gourmet food vendors, locally brewed beers with a beer and wine garden, live entertainment and a fireworks...
