  • “Once upon a time,” the fairy tale beginning.  It conjures up images of a better time.  Fairy tales always start off well, then things fall apart, but all ends well and “They lived happily ever after.”

    I think a lot of people are living with “Once upon a time” syndrome.  We idolize the past and forget that the good old days weren’t all that good.  We look back to some golden era in our childhood or in our nation’s history and want to regain that imagined glory.

  • It is already that time of year, time to get the mower out.  For me, that generally means rearranging the garage and digging the mower out from under all the junk I piled on top of it over the last few months.  Hopefully, you don’t have that problem.

  • Don’t let the maintenance of your tractor go by the wayside when you get busy. There’s a tendency to put maintenance on the back burner as spring and summer field activities get into full swing. Often when we do think about maintenance, it is the implement we think about, and we ignore the tractor.

  • It is the time of year when 4-H’ers across Kentucky prepare their speeches and demonstrations for upcoming local communications contests. These programs offer so much more to youth than just ribbons. They give young people the opportunity to develop important life skills and receive a sense of accomplishment in a job well done.

  • I have my orders placed for onion sets and seed potatoes along with some of my favorite summer crops that will be directly seeded in the garden once the temperatures really warm. I can barely stand the wait! I have just seeded out several trays of early season vegetables that like a cool start to the season.  Kale, broccoli, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts are just beginning to push through the light potting mix.

  • Absolutely nothing says spring more than the distant chorus of spring peepers.  There is a wooded stream just off Conner Station that is home to a cacophonous band of peepers all competing for as many females as they can.  On a warm March evening, especially after a shower, spring peepers remind me of how glorious rural life can be.  Just by listening, a whole other world can be imagined.

  • Kentucky 4-H is one of the most important and influential youth programs in our state and our county. Across Kentucky over 279,000 youth ages 9 to 19 learn about leadership, citizenship and life skills in “learn-by-doing” experiences such as communications and public speaking, through agriculture projects like livestock judging, science projects with robotics, 4-H camp, Teen Conference, and many other 4-H programs and activities.
