  • One of my favorite writers is Anne Lamott.
    She’s both profound and profane, one of those people who, when you hear what comes out of her mouth, you gasp and are horrified — unless you’re honest with yourself and realize she’s only saying the same things you sometimes think.

  • The Harrison County Phase I committee has begun the process of offering Phase I funds for 2014.

The amount again this year will be $2,500 and the range of projects are similar to last year’s program.

  • While I will admit that half of my vegetable garden looks dreadful, the other half is holding steady because we mulched paths with a heavy layer of wood chips, filled unplanted beds with cover crops and have weeded the rest by hand and hoe.  
    I started using cover crops about five years ago and I am sold on the multi-purpose usefulness.  
    While many disease pathogens winter over on plant debris and an equal amount remain viable in the soil, it means we need to strategize to keep the garden relatively clean.
