  • The beacon of spring in these parts is undoubtedly the native dogwood. But, there are other notable spring bloomers worth consideration in the home landscape. What about Halesia or Chionanthus, commonly known as Carolina silverbell and fringe tree, respectively.

    Both trees are native to the southeast United States and are well-suited to Kentuckiana’s climate. They are perfect for home landscapes because they are small to medium in size.

  • * Log Cabin, Sept. 14, 1906 - “Beautiful souvenir cards showing scenes, churches etc. of Cynthiana, have just been placed on sale at Jett’s drug store. The lot of 8,000 cards comprises 10 varieties. The Log Cabin office printed the cards.” (Some of those cards would be ideal for the museum collection. Do you have some that you might share?)

  • I can’t tell you how many people have told me that they have planted their tomatoes already… some nearly a month ago! Too early, too early! 

    When it comes to spring fever, the tomato is most abused. Gardeners just can’t wait to get out and dig, which is understandable, but when it comes to tomatoes, it is best to be patient.

    Tomatoes love two things:  good drainage and heat. If you have struggled with tomatoes in the past, consider what makes them most content when preparing the garden and setting your plants out.
