Today's Features

  • I can hardly wait for this year’s first harvest of summer squash.  
    Last year was a bust because of the heat so I have high hopes for a bumper squash crop this year.
    Mostly gardeners complain about losing their plants to the squash vine borer, but I have managed mostly to offset that pest pressure by delaying planting in order to miss peak egg-laying time.  
    I have also used row covers, lifting them in the morning so bees can do their pollinating then covering them during the day when mama wasp of the vine borer does her work.  

  • Nominations for Farm Service Agency county committees opened on Wednesday, June 15, according to Agriculture Commissioner Richie Farmer.
    “The county committees provide a vital link between the local farm community and the U.S. Department of Agriculture,” Farmer said. “They help deliver FSA programs at the local level. I encourage all Kentucky producers to take part in this election.”

  • Before you squish consider the next generation of beneficial insects that you may be eliminating from your garden.  
    We have come to look at all insects as bad, which is far from the truth. We delight over butterflies, but likely kill many while in the caterpillar stage; we love lady beetles, but the nymph stage looks a little scary; and we swat and spray every fly, wasp and bee in ear-shot.
    One of the challenges we face when it comes to beneficial insects is that we have a hard time distinguishing between the good guys and the true pests.
