    There is no surer sign of spring than blooming gardens and flower beds, but what happens behind-the-scenes to get them to that point?
    Much of the work goes in before you even break the soil. Before you dig in, it’s important to choose the proper site, plan what you will be growing, and prepare the soil to yield the best possible results. A garden is nothing without a good foundation, making it extra important to choose the correct site.

  • The MSUCorps AmeriCorps Program and its partners are gearing up for their eighth annual Morehead Build-A-Bed Project to provide beds to children who are living in homes with not enough beds or none at all.
    The goal is to give beds to children PK-12th grade who are forced to sleep on floors, couches, or in beds with multiple other children or family members. This regional Build-A-Bed Project has provided more than 1,000 beds to children in Eastern Kentucky since it began in 2010. This year the committee set a goal to build 250 beds.

  • I was just thinking about spring but then I realized I should just live in the moment and be thankful that I do not have to battle weeds this time of the year.
    Spring and cool season weeds will be here soon enough. The most common cool-season annual and perennial weeds will be germinating once our soils warm a bit, it is amazing how quickly it can happen as our days get longer and the sun shines more frequently.

    As spring approaches, many homeowners begin to think about their yard’s landscape. The winter months can be damaging to trees and shrubs. To ensure healthy spring plants, homeowners may want to prune the trees and shrubs around their home. But do not just prune for the sake of pruning, make sure you have a valid reason for pruning before you begin.

  • There are two bumper stickers that I totally don’t understand. One states, “He Who Dies With The Most Toys Wins.” Wins what? We all know that we can’t take it with us and what is left goes to either the tax man or our estate. So what’s won? 
    The second one, the gist of this article, “Only God Can Judge Me.”
