  • I am allergic to many things and it is not just seasonal pollen…so trust me when I say don’t blame your late summer sneezes on this lovely perennial.  There are about 100 species of golden rod in North America, twenty of which can be found in Kentucky.   So, it is no surprise that Solidago, or golden rod, is Kentucky’s official state flower.

  • Plum Creek Baptist Family Night kick-off

  • We do not have to look very far to find someone that needs a miracle. Many are suffering some type of crisis with everything from health problems, their children, and grieving over a loss, to finances, marriage issues and addictions. When difficult situations are presented, we become sympathetic, but how often do we consider that God may have brought these individuals to our attention so that we can not only pray but to intervene and help meet their needs? Instead of just discussing the situation and having pity, maybe we can become the miracle they are praying for.

  • Anne Patton Schubert, Taylorsville, Kentucky, has been elected as a delegate to the 134rd Annual American Angus Association Convention of Delegates, Nov. 6 at the Fort Worth Convention Center in Fort Worth, Texas, reports Allen Moczygemba, CEO of the American Angus Association.

  • The beacon of spring in these parts is undoubtedly the native dogwood.  But, because of disease problems, especially dogwood anthracnose, people are seeking alternatives to Cornus florida.  There are other notable dogwoods like Cornus kousa and Cornus mas, but look beyond the dogwood for small, spring flowering landscape trees that prove to have interest well into summer. Consider the Carolina silverbell (halesia) and the fringe tree (chionanthus).

  • I received a letter from a reader years ago that asked somewhat of a philosophical question regarding determinate tomatoes.  Yes, philosophical, because she asked why would we plant a tomato that sets its fruit, reaches a certain point, stops growing, ripens nearly at once and then dies?  Our love affair with homegrown tomatoes would more logically dictate that we grew only indeterminate tomatoes that reached monstrous proportions and yielded fruit into a first killing frost.

  • It is amazing how many things you learn after you get married.  For example, it never dawned on me that there was a wrong way to lay out a dish rag.  When I finished doing the dishes, I would just leave the dishcloth in the sink, usually balled up in the corner.  My new bride informed me that I was doing it wrong.
