  • The corn planting season has begun for a few who are planting a large number of acres. With the current wet period it may be different to plant corn at the optimum time for the highest yield possible. Soil temperatures and wet conditions will determine how successful we will be for the production season.
    Dr. Jim Herbek, Corn Specialist at Princeton Station, developed a fact sheet on planting dates which should consider all information when deciding on timing of planting corn. I have selected a part of this article for you to consider.

  • Starting seeds indoors turns out to be a necessary skill if you want success with early crops that prefer cooler temperatures during the growing season like cabbage, broccoli and Brussels sprouts.  
    Setting out a young plant means it has a chance to reach maturity before our summer temperatures soar and the plants bolt and become bitter.

  • Recently, someone asked on a Christian Website: How should you celebrate the day after Easter?
    We’ve all heard the debates over how to celebrate the actual holiday, with Christians arguing with each other over whether or not the pagan symbols of eggs, furry bunnies and marshmallow Peeps are spiritually detrimental.
    But the day after Easter? Don’t we all just go back to work with leftover ham sandwiches in our lunch boxes?
