  • Starlings flock

    Last Sunday I felt like I was under siege.
    There were starlings everywhere; so much so that I feared being splattered with poop at every turn.  
    The surprising thing about starlings is that they are everywhere yet not from here. It’s another story of one good intention going bad.
    Apparently, back in 1890, in honor of a Shakespeare festival in New York City’s Central Park, 60 European starlings were released.

  • Mistletoe: From tree thief to holiday tradition

    By Jessica Sayre, County extension agent for horticulture
    Once autumn leaves have fallen, mistletoe becomes highly visible on large trees throughout Kentucky. Phoradendron, the scientific name for Kentucky’s most common variety of this parasitic plant, means “tree thief”. These small leafy plants are commonly found on twigs and branches of many hardwood species in the southern United States. Mistletoe extracts - steals - water, mineral elements and food from tree hosts; hence the name.

  • Which type of tree reflects your holiday, live or fresh cut?

    It is hard to believe that the holiday season is upon us!
    I have family visiting for Christmas so this means a bigger tree than normal; if you are going to travel to come see us, this is the least I can do. Plus, it is fun to find the “perfect” tree that fits your space and holds precious ornaments with style.
    So, which type of tree reflects your holiday? Do you get a fresh-cut, artificial, balled-and-burlapped? Or do you just go out-of-town and let someone else do the decorating?
