• Eating for your eyes

    As you age, so do your eyes. Vision problems usually creep up slowly.
    About 16 million people in the U.S. over age 45 report some vision loss.
    But you do have ways to help prevent eye disease, especially age-related macular degeneration, or AMD.
    The Harrison County office of the University of Kentucky Extension Service is holding a program on Tuesday, Oct. 24 at 1 p.m. to provide people with information on how they can keep their eyes healthy longer.

  • Wireworms in the potato patch

    I have loads of potatoes this year, most of them are clean as a whistle. We get them out early so they are ready to harvest by mid to late August.  This early start seems to offset any significant problem with wireworms.
    The tell-tale sign of wireworms: if you do have lots of tiny holes in your potatoes you likely saw the tough little yellow or rust colored worms when you were digging your crop.
    In the past few weeks as folks begin to dig their potatoes, I am hearing the inquiry, “What are the tiny holes in my potatoes and how do I prevent them”?
