  • Looking forward to the summer vegetable garden

    By Jessica Sayre, County extension agent for Horticulture
    Soon you’ll be receiving seed catalogs for the 2017 vegetable-growing season. While listening to the cold wind blow outside, what a comfort it is to think about spring and summer and planning your garden.
    To make the most of your garden, every aspiring gardener should follow seven steps to have a successful gardening season.
    • Plan your garden on paper before you begin.

  • Skunks are on the move

    It is that time of year again and I am reminded because of the smell and road kill left behind.
    Plus, a strong scent of skunk has been lingering in the pasture this past week; and I got an Instagram video from my niece as she was clearly backing away from a lumbering black and white rodent down by the river.  
    We used to get them circling the house on winter evenings but our livestock guardian dogs’ presence has kept them at bay the last few years.

  • Don’t forget what’s in the root cellar

    Perhaps this can be a reminder of the payoff of “putting up” the garden in spring, summer and fall: We have extended our homegrown eating pleasure into the winter months with some basic preservation methods.  
    If you froze, dried, canned or otherwise preserved fresh fruits and vegetables in 2016, do not forget about them (or horde them for some unreasonable time.)
    First, open the freezer and assess what’s there: blanched Romano beans with some ice crystals forming inside the freezer bag?  Plan a stew for dinner.
