  • * Cynthiana Democrat, July 31, 1930 - “The Democrat’s Sycamore correspondent sends the following catfish story. Sunday morning after the storm of July 12th about 300 catfish were found floating on the top of the water in a large pond near the house of W. E. Jones. They were all dead, some 16 inches long. The strange part of the story is that later Mr. Jones had some boys go into the pond, which is nearly dry, and catch the remainder of the fish. They took out 260 and put them where there was more water and not one of them was a catfish. Just why did the catfish die?

  • Small stalks, small ears, poor kernel development… does this describe your corn crop this year?

    If it does, there may be several factors at work. Drought at the wrong time can stunt your corn crop (haven’t had that this year); cold damage can stunt corn (if you put your crop out early, you could see a little stunting from a late spring cold snap); and poor drainage and poor soil fertility, especially nitrogen, can stunt the crop as well.

  • So much for the raspberries this year, not the best crop we’ve seen, in fact each year it seems to get a little messier than the last.

    We typically cut the ‘Royalty’ raspberries all the way to the ground each year and forgo an early crop to manage disease, but it doesn’t seem to be working that well this time around. It has not been a total loss, but about half the canes are dried up and diseased.
