  • 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.

  • In the past few years, my husband and I have made it a tradition to eat Christmas dinner at a nearby inn that serves a humungous buffet.
    Without fail, every time we go I bemoan the fact that my stomach can’t accommodate large quantities of food.
    I’ve seen people eat stacks of pancakes the size of Rhode Island and whole sides of beef and think that maybe I can do that too, but I can’t.
