  • I like the winter landscape because I can see past the green canvas of summer into neighboring fields where horses graze and a pet cow that is almost as old as me slumbers. I can see mistletoe everywhere, too; driving down the interstate, walking in the park, sitting at a traffic light.  It is there if you look into the canopies of trees devoid of their leafy-ness.
    We are obviously not the first to notice round globs of greenery nestled in tree tops.

  • Last year in December the Harrison County Extension Center offered a grain meeting which combined five or six of the central Kentucky counties. The same type program will be offered again. On Tuesday, Dec. 13 at the Scott County Extension Office a program will be offered which will begin at 6 p.m.
    Dr. Chad Lee, grain specialist and Dr. Cory Walters, grain marketing specialist, will present the program. With high input cost it is essential to do everything right. With the uncertainly of the grain market and the overall economy this should be a very beneficial program.

  • One of a few sure things in my life is that I can keep my African violets in bloom year round. Many complain that after the first flush of blooms fades the only thing left is a year’s worth of fuzzy foliage.  
    Well, with a little attention you can keep your African violet cycling in and out of bloom all year round.
    African violets are easier to grow than many think if you create a favorable growing environment.
