  • Planning an onion crop

    Although we’re in the midst of winter, it is never too soon to think about next growing season. This is particularly true if you want to grown onions.

    Onions are a good crop for Kentucky farmers. Typically, in late winter it takes eight to 10 weeks to produce a reasonably sized transplant. If you want to plant in late March or the beginning of April, you should have seeded your transplants in late January.

    If you have not already seeded, it’s not too late for an onion crop this year. You can purchase transplants.

  • Weatherman not the most popular job lately
  • Gifts of thought, not convenience!

    Are you ready for the big day? If you are male you probably don’t even know what I am talking about. If you are a woman, you have probably already thought about sharing a romantic Valentine’s Day. Now I realize that is a generalization perhaps colored by my own experiences, but it seems generally true to me that men struggle with expressing love in ways that women really appreciate.
