  • You can prevent hay bale or barn fires if you bale hay at appropriate moisture levels and monitor the temperature of recently baled hay.

    Generally, hay will begin a heating phase within one to two days after baling. During this time, you should monitor hay to make sure it does not reach temperatures that can damage the hay or lead to spontaneous combustion.

  • One of my favorite things about summer is my front row seat at the orchestra.  The orchestra of insects, that is.  Late summer, when temperatures cool down enough to turn the air conditioner off and open the windows, we fall asleep to the sounds of katydids, crickets and cicadas.  I sometimes cheat in the heat of the summer and crack the window in my office so I can hear the insects and the birds as I work at the computer or in the kitchen.

  • Rehearsals to begin for annual Community Tree of Life

    It’s time to start working on the 2016 Christmas Musical production presented by the Community Tree of Life under the direction of Joy Thompson. The first meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, August 30 at 6:30 p.m. in the sanctuary of First Baptist Church in Taylorsville.

    Everyone is invited to come and participate in this event. For more details, call Janet Barnett at 502-299-8543 or Sarah Hickman at 502-249-6425.

  • Work hard on a hot day and then grab a glass of ice cold sweet tea.  Feel the cold glass in your hand and taste the sweetness on your tongue, . Ahh!. Just a short break in a hard and busy day, but it refreshes and renews your strength.

  • It’s not too late to continue to enjoy your garden and to add new plantings. You can grow a variety of produce in Kentucky gardens in the coming weeks and have several fresh items available well into the fall.

    Cooler nights later in the year can increase the sugar content of many crops and thus increase their quality. Cooler nights also slow growth, so your crops can take longer to mature than in the summer. Keep this slower pace in mind when you check seeds for days to maturity.

  • Corn has been a staple food for centuries.  It was first cultivated by Indian peoples in Central America; in fact, the adoption of agriculture and the art of cultivating gave way to the grand cities of the Aztec and Mayans.   What would the world be without corn and potatoes, both of which were first cultivated in Central America?

  • Mt. Eden Christian Church Homecoming to celebrate 173 years

  • I notice a lot of people are moving this summer.  Homes for sale here and there and it seems that they are selling pretty quickly.  I guess that’s good news.

    I have to admit, I’m not big on moving anymore.  When my wife and I got married, I think we moved seven times in eight years.  And honestly, those moves were not too bad.  Then we settled down in one house and managed to stay there for about 16 years.  Moving from there was a different story.
