    FRIDAY, July 3

  • I have no complaints about plant performance this spring.  It was England-like with agreeable temperatures and ample rainfall, thus far. A few steamy days have managed to snap me back to summer in the Ohio valley reality. 

    Plants have preformed well and bloomed as they should here at the farm, but some gardeners continue to pose the question, “Where’s the bloom?”

  • Ethan Wyatt Bevins

    Ethan Wyatt Bevins was born to Jonathan and Jennifer Willoughby Bevins on May 29, 2009 at St. Claire Medical Center in Morehead, Ky. He weighed 7 lbs. 8 oz., and is welcomed by his sister, Natalie Hope.

    Maternal grandparents are Richard and Brenda Willoughby of Lewis County.

    Paternal grandparents are Wayne and Loretta Bevins of Lewis County.

  • We protect some of our plants from cold; why not protect them a bit from heat.  Sure, we can’t change the ambient air temperature on a 90 degree day, but we can keep our vegetables shaded on the hottest days of the summer with reasonable results.

    The vegetable garden can start doing some funny things during a heat wave. When temperatures start to raise into the upper 80s and 90s, many vegetables drop flowers before pollination and fruit set and stop blooming. Beans, tomatoes and eggplant do like it hot, but there is a threshold of tolerance to heat.
