  • Setting out your own strawberry patch

    Spring planting of strawberries is recommended for Kentuckiana, as early as March. The key to a good crop is to plant them in the right spot and to choose the right variety … and this is where it can be a little confusing.
    There are several different categories of strawberries including June-bearing, ever-bearing and day-neutral.  
    June-bearing varieties have traditionally been the best tasting and these are the ones that must be pinched in the first year, producing a late spring crop the following year.

  • The romance of mulch

    I know, many of you would think that a trailer load of mulch is not a very romantic present from your husband on your 46th birthday…but I absolutely love it.  
    We missed our window of opportunity to get mulch down in our big perennial beds last spring so Andy was motivated by my birthday to get it done in 2015.  
    It looks great (until the chickens show up and do their scratching- oh well).
    Mulch has become a landscape staple, almost to a fault when it is over applied, smothering roots and girdling trunks.
