  • Lately it seems that everywhere I step in the yard, vegetable garden and perennial beds there is a toad under foot.  
    They manage to jump out of harm’s way (from a rapidly approaching foot or spade) just in the nick of time.  When I notice healthy populations of a good insect, bug or amphibian, I like to think that they are flourishing because of the ecological balance of the farm.  
    Toads are an indicator species suggesting in their abundance that the environment is healthy; in their absence that it is not.  

  • U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Kentucky  Farm Service Agency (FSA) Executive Director John W.

Planted acres must be reported to FSA by July 15, 2014.  The Agricultural Act of 2014 (2014 Farm Bill) requires producers on a farm to submit annual acreage reports on all cropland.
