  • Succulents for indoor bloom

    Plant collectors have long appreciated orchids and African violets for their winter bloom cycle.  
    I have amassed a collection of both and they help me get through the winter with their colorful interest. But violets and orchids are not the only classes of plants that can deliver in the winter; think succulents.  
    Succulents are plants that have adapted to environments that receive very little rainfall.  They can store moisture, using small amounts when needed.

  • Another year in animal husbandry

    I use this annual reflection to track our record of animal husbandry since we began raising a few hens for a personal egg supply in 2007.  
    Those few hens turned into over 100 in a few short years.  It was contagious, I suppose, as our taste for productivity grew and we added not only more eggs but meat chicken and lamb to the mix.  
    I think one of the most provocative questions there is for small scale producers comes from folks who say “How can you kill them?”  My answer is that I don’t.  

  • Safety is top consideration when using portable heaters

    By Benita Peoples, Co. extension agent for family and consumer science
    Small space heaters are typically used when the main heating system is inadequate or when central heating is too costly to install or operate. In some cases, small space heaters can be less expensive to use if you only want to heat one room or supplement inadequate heating in one room. They can also boost the temperature of rooms used by individuals who are sensitive to cold, especially elderly persons, without overheating your entire home.

  • Explanation of the Homemaker emblem

    Curry Homemakers
    This emblem is composed of four concentric circles which typify the home, the state, the nation and the organization.
    The hearth fire in the center symbolizes the home and expresses the spirit of the finer attributes of the home, such as fellowship, hospitality, comfort, peace and protection.
    The oak leaf symbolizes the strength of the home; the lamp of knowledge, the wisdom with which a home and family must be created; the wheat productivity and richness of family and community life.
