Summer splendor in the grass is being replaced by a fungus among us for some gardeners.
I have seen some weird stuff out in the pastures this last week, likely due to the heat and rain. Mostly people like to blame dead patches in the lawn on grubs, but often fungal diseases are the culprit and the weather and our own maintenance habits contribute to the problem.
Despite the advice that fall is better than spring when it comes to fertilization, many people still do it which causes problems this time of the year.

I have long understood that purslane could be used in salads or soups but never made much of an effort to harvest it until a few years ago.
So, when high summer approaches I am now on the hunt for purslane, considered a noxious weed by most.
I am not the only one who regards purslane with some culinary virtue. A fellow Farm Market farmer at the Belknap Farmers’ Market gave me a taste of his homemade salsa commenting “It is the best way to use purslane.” I was so excited to hear someone else get excited about this so-called weed.

The gifts of life come to us from persons of all ages. Jesus must have realized this when he suggested that the children around would often lead us.
I recently shared with my church family an incident in my life that verified this truth. I was getting ready to play our over 40 soccer game at Masterson Station in Lexington, when I began to count up the eligible players.
I felt a sense of panic when I realized I was the 11th body there that day.
