  • The Harrison County Farmers’ Market committee will offer an educational meeting discussing early spring crops including cole crop production.  The meeting will take place Thursday, Jan. 19 at 6:30 p.m. at the Harrison County Extension Office.
    Producers usually question the time of plant and what the expected maturity date would be. This meeting will discuss these matters and will also include seed and plant selection for your garden.

  • Most people would say that there is not much going on in the garden during the winter months. I beg to differ. There are dozens of plants out there doing something interesting.  Some are just showing their pretty bark or their sculptural quality bare of leaves. Others are just beginning to emerge and will be blooming soon.  And others just have some crazy quality that allows their foliage to look as fresh and clean as a spring garden despite the fact it is winter in Kentuckiana.

  • For the most part I’m not a fan of the “Messages from God” billboards (“What part of ‘Thou Shalt Not’ didn’t you understand?” “Keep using my name in vain and I’ll make rush hour longer,” “You think it’s hot here?”).
    Launched a few years ago by a Fort Lauderdale advertising agency, there are 17 messages in all, each one signed simply “God.”
    I do, however, like the one that says, “Well, you did ask for a sign.”
    That always makes me laugh.
