  • We harvested some fantastic looking “Red Candy Apple’ purple onions a few weeks ago and it is now time to start digging some ‘Yukon Gold’ potatoes and garlic over the weekend.
    I am so excited about the garden this year because it is performing so well. We need to wait another week or so to harvest the ‘Sterling’ and ‘Walla Walla’ onions because tops have yet to flop over; this allows them to store better.

    Summer’s heat and weather can take a toll on your flower garden. But with a little extra care, it is possible to bring it back to life for a few more weeks of vibrant color and texture.
    It’s always important to make sure annuals and perennials get plenty of water this time of year, especially in later summer. Annuals, in particular, will start to decline without an adequate supply of water to keep the ground moist.

  • The summer camping program at the Kentucky Sheriffs’ Boys and Girls Ranch officially opened to campers for their 42nd season on Sunday, June 11. The camp runs throughout June and July, serving both boys and girls alternating weeks, throughout the camp season.

  • The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Farm Service Agency (FSA) Acting Executive Director for Kentucky, Robert W. Finch, reminds farmers and ranchers that they have until Aug. 1, 2017, to nominate eligible candidates to serve on local FSA county committees.

  • Tradition tells of a chime that rang out on July 8, 1776, from the tower of Independence Hall summoning the citizens of Philadelphia to hear the first public reading of the Declaration of Independence by Colonel John Nixon.  
    That chime came from the Liberty Bell which has ever since become a symbol of the iconic Declaration upon which so many of our freedoms rest.

  • At my church this summer we’re learning about the “hard sayings” of Jesus.
    He said stuff like, “I have not come to give peace but division,” “Judge not” and “Let the dead bury the dead.”
    He also said we could ask for stuff -- “Ask and it will be given to you” and that “everyone who asks receives” (Luke 11:9-10).
    He said, “You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it” (John 14:13-14).
    My pastor called it “the big ask.”
