Today's Features

  • I was in Shepherdsville at Country Corner Greenhouse earlier in the week and picked up some good-looking sweet potato slips that are finally ready for the garden.  
    Up until last week it has been too cold for the southern crop.
    Sweet potatoes are tropical by nature but can be grown successfully in Kentuckiana as long as we wait until it is warm (night-time temperatures in the 60’s).  
    As long as they have 150 frost-free days and some steamy Ohio Valley weather, we should be knee deep in sweet potatoes by Thanksgiving.  

  • True fact: I am not a professional photographer.
    Another true fact: I am in desperate need of — something.
    As I write this I’m sitting in a park pavilion early on a Saturday morning. I’m supposed to be taking photos of a kids’ triathlon for the newspaper, but right now, as the littlest kids are in the pool and on their bikes and running their little legs off, I’m NOT taking their pictures.
    Recently, I bought a jazzy new camera, a red one, with a zoomy lens.
