  • * Cynthiana News, Feb. 25, 1869 -- “We have learned from the president of the Covington and Lexington Railroad, that he will build a platform from Pike Street, next to the Smith House, to the depot.

  • One of the very first insects that I identified as a young gardener was the pine sawfly.

Looking for and plucking bagworms; collecting beetles in jars for identification at the County Extension Service; or closely noting the color, legs and chewing habits of the various caterpillars I encountered.

  • Who among us is guilty of not noticing something until it’s too late? Yes, all of a sudden there is nothing left of your blue spruce or arborvitae. Bagworms have been munching on the needles for weeks and we wonder how it all happened. Well, they are at work right now so go outside and take inventory of your evergreens because that’s what the bagworm likes the most. Now is the time they do their damage unless we put a stop to it.
