  • Museum Musings

    * Cynthiana Democrat, Nov. 6, 1969 -- “Looking Back” by Mary Renaker - As we think of Cynthiana now and Cynthiana in the Twenties, we miss two of the busy centers then; the Crown Jewel and Crescent Milling Companies. The Crescent Mill was located just where Southern States stands. The Crown Jewel was back of what is now Harrison Motor. At this season of the year just after threshing time, farmers were hauling in wheat to be sold or exchanged for flour, which was made at both mills.

  • Seed starting indoors gets a jump on early season crops

    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.
