  • 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.

    HARRISON COUNTY UNITED METHODIST

  • 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.
