  • The bramble patch is usually cleaned up by now but the cold winter has set us back with a few of our garden chores.  
    It turns out that this may be a good thing after all: The University of Kentucky has sent out a “blackberry alert” urging gardeners to hold off on pruning blackberry and raspberry until new shoots begin to emerge.  
    They are expecting more than usual die back due to our cold winter season.
    Most brambles are biennial which means they fruit on second-year growth.

    Protein is an essential part of your daily diet. Meat is an excellent choice of protein. Come learn with us about the new cuts of beef, wet age vs. dry aged: prime, choice and select cuts of beef; grain fed; buying local meats; fat content of beef; and cooking methods based upon the cut of meat selected.

  • I was catching up on some magazine reading the other day and on two occasions I read the phrase “choose thin spears” and I got so frustrated.  
    These spring articles were about asparagus and I would like to go on the record that when it comes to homegrown asparagus (and even the wild growing in the fence rows) fat is good.
    The fat spears have always been tender from the garden so don’t let anyone fool you on the fresh from the garden variety. They are particularly well-suited for the charcoal grill.
