  • 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.

  • Tomatoes like it warm

    I have patiently waited for some summer-like heat to arrive before planting my pepper and tomato plants.  Now that the forecast calls for warm spring nights the coast is clear for summer vegetables.  
    Tomatoes love two things:  good drainage and heat. If you have struggled with tomatoes in the past, consider what makes them most content when preparing the garden and setting your plants out.  
    First thing first: Always wait until our frost-free date (on average this is May 10, give or take a week depending on where you are located).

  • Injured and orphaned wildlife should be left alone

    Wildlife Biologists with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources recommend people to leave wildlife alone that appear to be abandoned.
    People pick up seemingly abandoned wildlife with the best of intentions, but do more to harm the animal than to help it.
    As a general rule, wildlife do not make good pets and are not truly abandoned when found in the wild. White-tailed deer and other species of wildlife leave their young for extended periods of time each day, only to return and take care of them.
