  • The latest murder of three Baton Rouge police officers has rattled our already fragile sense of safety and reminds us—as if we needed reminding—that we live in an age of hatred, a hatred that fuels terror and ends in murder. And the nearly daily dish of bad news leaves many of us are asking how we arrived at such a place.

  • We harvested some fantastic looking potatoes and garlic over the weekend. I am so excited about the garden this year, because it is performing so well.

    We need to wait a few more weeks on the onions, as we wait for their “tops to flop,” which allows them to store better.

    We have enjoyed some fresh green onion and bulbs, but for the bulk of the crop, we want to harvest and cure them properly so they will store well.

  • Honeybee populations have been declining in recent years, with a 40 percent loss of bees in some states last year, compared to a rate that hovered around 5 percent in the 1970s, state beekeeper Tammy Horn Potter said.

  • Last week, I mentioned a trip to the zoo.  Well, the rain held off and we did get to go.  It was hot, late in the afternoon, but we made it.

    For me, seeing the leopards and the giraffes was a blast, and I assumed that would be the case for my grandson. Shows what I know.  He starts chasing the robins and sparrows we see every day.  And a squirrel?  Look out!

  • Summer months are the harvest season for blueberries and blackberries, both of which have the potential to grow very well in Kentucky.

    Harvest time for blueberries, which are native to North America, is from early June through early August. Blackberry harvest is from mid-June to early October.

    These delicious fruits offer several health benefits, and they capture the essence of summer in their sweetness.

  • This year the hydrangea display is proving to be spectacular.  It’s the big-leafed, or French hydrangea that elicit the most attention because of the volume and size of the blooms.  

    Hydrangea macrophylla got its common moniker because they were predominately cultivated in France, starting in the early 20th century. Hydrangea macrophylla prefer cool, moist and shady conditions, and the temperate climate in France proved favorable to the native Japanese species that was brought to the West.    

  • So I’m getting ready to take my Grandson to the zoo, and it is pouring rain right now. Now raining cats and dogs and going to the zoo don’t mean the same thing to me, nor will they mean the same thing to my Grandson.

    We’ve all had those times when we made our plans and then, through no fault of our own, things change.  The weather doesn’t cooperate, the park you wanted to visit is closed for renovations, or your flight gets canceled, so your carefully laid plans go out the window.

    Thousands of people descended on Grant County for the official Ark Encounter ribbon-cutting and media day held on July 5 and the grand opening to the public, which took place as planned on July 7.
