  • The other day I got a letter from a Mark Gould of Southampton, New Jersey.
    He had just finished reading my book “Prayers God Always Answers” and he had some questions for me. He said, “I do like to question authors, more kindly now than in the past — once a gargoyle, not always one.”

    The center is located at 201 N. Second St., Berry, Ky., (behind the data center). For more information call 859-954-1573 or email to wareagleministries@yahoo.com.

  • Everyone is talking about what a terrible season it has been for vegetable farming.
    My garden is growing weeds while the onions rot and the tomatoes languish on the vine. The rain has made for soggy ground that starves annual plants of oxygen.  
    So what are we to do?  
    First and foremost this is a reminder of how important it is to build soil year after year to ensure good drainage for plants that would otherwise be starved of oxygen if they are trapped in soggy, clayey soils.  
    The rest is lies in our cultural practices.

  • It seems we have experienced flooding this summer that has impacted nearly every county in the state. These floods have raised questions on how to deal with vegetable gardens that have been covered with flood water. The following information was gathered from the University of Kentucky’s Dr. Sandra Bastin, Extension Food and Nutrition Specialist; Dr. John Strang, UK Extension Fruit and Vegetable Specialist; and from University of Michigan Cooperative Extension.
