  • The Harrison County Farmers Market has scheduled the opening date for April 21. In a mailer last week, I had mentioned the date of April 28 as the starting date. This was an incorrect start date and I wanted to correct this for the general public.
    On Saturday, April 21, the group hopes to have some cole crops, onions, lettuce and some plants for sale. We will also have some locally made crafts which will be offered.
    Again, the market will have producers from Harrison, Roberson, Bourbon, Nicholas and Pendleton counties.

  • Warmer-than-normal conditions this spring are causing a few concerns for apple growers. The biggest threats right now are cedar rusts and fire blight. Cedar rust galls are developing. As galls swell, they produce spores that threaten apple (and sometimes crabapple and hawthorn). Swelling galls were observed on cedar in Lexington in mid-March. Warmer temperatures in Western Kentucky provided conditions for even earlier gall development.
