  • You know all the jokes about people having bumper crops of summer squash?  Squash shows up in people’s cars or in public spaces because there is so much that the gardener can’t even give it away.   I have a little bit of that problem this year and I give credit to the variety and the fact that it was plated later than usual.  I also planted loads of it!  Some, folks, however, may not be so blessed with a bumper crop.

  • There are times we become confused and will not be able to figure out a way to solve our problems. Life is not always a smooth interstate and it’s good to remember that God is with us when we encounter unexpected roadblocks and detours.

    In these stressful situations, we can know that delays do not necessarily mean denial, but could be an opportunity for us to stretch our faith and learn more about trusting God.

  • I hope you’ve seen all the lightning bugs lighting up the fields and yards the past couple of weeks. There seem to be more this year than the last few years, which is a good thing.

    Do you remember catching lightning bugs and putting them in a jar as a kid?  I think we all did that at some point.  A few lightning bugs, a little grass for them to eat, and there was magic in a bottle.  Except they usually didn’t last long. Who knew lightning bugs don’t eat grass?  They are carnivores, eating worms and snails.

  • Kentucky farmers may apply Sivanto Prime under a Section 18 Emergency Exemption to control the sugarcane aphid in sweet sorghum, Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles has announced.

    “Some sweet sorghum growers have reported a total crop loss because of this destructive pest,” Commissioner Quarles said. “Growers now can move forward with the certainty that this product will be available to protect their crops.”

  • Have you ever gotten blamed for something you haven’t done?  Most of us have experienced this and it is a dreadful feeling.  Well, there are a great many things we blame erroneously on one thing or another, and lichens are one of them. Lichens, often described as barnacles by worried gardeners, usually show up on woody plants after some sort of thinning or decline has occurred.  They are not the problem, only the result of a change in the plant’s environment.

  • If you are interested in exploring new cultures, you may want to consider participating in the Kentucky 4-H International Program. The program is looking for two individuals or families to host Japanese students for the next school year. The host does not have to have children living in the home to participate in the program.

    The Japanese students will arrive in August and stay with the hosts through May. While here, they will attend school and participate in extracurricular activities like an average American teenager.
