  • Taking care of your lawn and garden equipment can make the difference between having stuff that works and stuff that doesn’t! After you are finished preparing your plants for winter don’t forget about your equipment and garden ornaments.  
    In most of our gardens we have more than plants.  Birdbaths, decorative planters, terracotta pots, lawn furniture and hoses need the same consideration we give our plants.  

  • By Jessica Sayre, County extension agent

    Winter probably doesn’t seem like the right time to eliminate pests that will take advantage of your landscape plants next spring. But we need to remember that many problem pests will spend the winter on or near the plants they want to munch on when the weather turns warmer.
    One way to get an early handle on problem pests is to use horticultural oils specially formulated for pest control. Horticultural oils suffocate overwintering pests like scale, aphids and certain mites.

    ST. EDWARD CHURCH

  • Thanksgiving ... giving thanks ...
    In church last week Rhonda Strawzell led the children through an exercise with an acrostic. They had the word “T-H-A-N-K-S-G-I-V-I-N-G” printed on a piece of paper. As they read down the page, they hollered out something for which they were thankful that began with that letter.

  • Recently, I listened to an eight-episode podcast (like an internet radio show) called “Oh Dear God.”
    Done by two young, thirtysomething women, they both grew up in the Christian faith.
    Today they like some of Christianity, but not all of it. Same goes for their feelings about the church.
    The women met at camp -- they love church camp -- and now they’re comedians who live in Los Angeles.
