  • Way Back When

    10 years ago . . .
    Births announced this week are: Trinity Mae Brooke Sutton, April 26, daughter of Tabitha and Micky Sutton; Josie Kate Tucker, April 30, daughter of Lee and Beth Tucker.
    Harrison County Water Association is asking for voluntary water conservation. Four of the county’s 10 water towers were either very low or out of water over the Memorial Day weekend.

  • Some plants like it wet

    There are some plants that demand good drainage:  taxus, coreopsis, gaillardia and penstemon, to name a few. I have lost them all because they were poorly sited in the garden but now that I know where water is slow to drain, I know where to plant those trees, shrubs and perennials that like wet environments.  
    There is an upside to poor drainage for some plants, just be sure that water is available when Mother Nature doesn’t deliver.

  • Sweet potato planting time

    Once again, we enjoyed sweet potatoes all winter long from a fantastic harvest last fall.  
    I planted out about 25 organic slips purchased from Country Corner Greenhouse in Shepherdsville in late May and by early November we had four nursery crates full of one of nature’s perfect foods. Seven months and counting in storage with no spoilage is impressive.  
    We are down to about a dozen sweet potatoes; just in time for a transition to other summer vegetables.
