  • Kentucky Circuit Court Clerks celebrate National Eye Donor Month

    March is National Eye Donor Month, a special time to honor those who donate their corneas after death to give others sight. More than 48,000 Americans have their sight restored each year as a result of corneal transplants and can once again see loved ones and the colors of the world.
    First proclaimed by President Ronald Reagan in 1983, National Eye Donor Month promotes eye donation awareness and celebrates the lives of eye donors and corneal recipients.

  • Potato planting time

    Spring break from teaching at U of L conveniently falls during the week of St. Patrick’s Day, which is also my target date for planting onions and potatoes.  
    I typically manage a mid-March planting but the condition of the soil is my primary concern. I will not start digging until the soil dries out and is considered workable.

  • Seed starting basics

    I have my orders placed for onion sets and seed potatoes along with some of my favorite summer crops that will be directly seeded in the garden once the temperatures really warm. I can barely stand the wait.
    I have just seeded out several trays of early season vegetables that like a cool start to the season. Kale, broccoli, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts are just beginning to push through the light potting mix.
    My set up is not elaborate; it basically consists of a kit that includes a plastic dome that fits over a seed tray and pan.
