  • * Log Cabin, Feb. 18, 1898 - “By prompt service and a careful attention to the wants of patrons, W. T. Huffman’s Walnut Street restaurant has established its enviable reputation. Everything the season offers is to be found here and is promptly and properly served. Call.”

  • Some plants are prolific; some are not. 

    Dandelion seeds float through the air and disperses far and wide in spring or summer; hundreds of tiny seeds burst from the spent blooms of cleome as a sphinx moth feeds at dusk; and you can just walk past some hairy cress and millions of seed burst forth from the draft.

    Woody plants seem to be a bit more elusive. I have never seen a Serbian spruce spring forth from a fallen cone or an apple tree emerge from rotten fruit beneath the canopy. 

    Starting woody plants from seed can be a bit more tricky.

  • The Harrison County Farm Field Day will be held Monday, Oct. 18 at 4 p.m. We will be visiting the farm of Troy and Mary Ware Bradford located on Connersville Pike. The farm is approximately three miles from Cynthiana.

    The farm operation includes 300 acres of land which corn, soybeans, tobacco and hay production creates a unique farm program.  Although many of these enterprises are labor intensive, I think you will see how you can reduce some of the expenses.
