If anyone would like to visit the plot and receive information on how to grow mums, plan to come and see this example of growing a different crop in Harrison County.

  • Corn has been a staple food for centuries. It was first cultivated by Indian peoples in Central America; in fact, the adoption of agriculture and the art of cultivating gave way to the grand cities of the Aztec and Mayans.   
    What would the world be without corn and potatoes, both of which were first cultivated in Central America?
    Modern corn derived from teosinte, a far less productive genetic relative. Teosinte is a wild grass that has small female spikes made up of encased seeds; modern corn forms ears instead.  

  • Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announces that a high demand for guaranteed farm ownership and direct farm operating funds has prompted USDA to transfer appropriated funds between programs as authorized by law, to meet the urgent credit needs of producers, including beginning and minority farmers and ranchers.

  • A while ago someone sent me a newsletter from The Coming Home Network International.
    Attached was a note that read: “Mrs. Kennedy, I understand you are a lapsed Catholic. If so, you may find this (newsletter) of interest. Why not return to our Mother Church?”
    It was signed, “a friend.”
    In the newsletter, a woman who had grown up as a Catholic wrote about meeting some evangelical Protestants, including the man she eventually married, and spent 20 years attending Protestant churches before returning to the Catholic Church.
