  • Reunions

    COURTNEY

    The descendents of James, John and Will Courtney will hold their annual reunion Saturday, Oct. 1. As usual it will be held at the Pleasant Green Church fellowship hall.

    Any questions contact Carol at 859-234-1903, Joyce at 859-234-1870, Diane at 859-588-0937 or Judy at 859-234-9486. We have some new babies so I hope to see them.

  • Cover crops are multi-purpose

    While I will admit that half of my vegetable garden looks dreadful, the other half is holding steady because we mulched paths with a heavy layer of wood chips, filled unplanted beds with cover crops and have weeded the rest by hand and hoe.  

    I started using cover crops about eight years ago and I am sold on the multi-purpose usefulness.  

    While many disease pathogens winter over on plant debris and an equal amount remain viable in the soil, it means we need to strategize to keep the garden relatively clean. 

  • Woman’s Club of Harrison County holds September luncheon

  • Are your fall bulb orders in?

    Who doesn’t love bulbs, especially daffodils, a sure sign that we have made it through winter. You can fill an entire spring season with daffodils by choosing early through late bloomers. But if you want a more diverse display consider adding some other spring and summer bulbs to the garden this fall.

  • Financial Affairs: “How full is your piggy bank?”

     How much money in your “piggy bank” is influenced by many expected and unexpected factors. Values, goals, personal choices, major life events, lifestyle conditions and needs (both planned and not planned) influence financial planning. However, for the most part, certain age groups tend to have the same life cycle needs.
