  • According to our weather forecasters it looks like we are locked into a cool, wet weather pattern for a couple of weeks. This is good news for some and bad for others. It is certainly hard to get ornamental and vegetable plants in when it rains all the time. Excessive rain and cool temperatures can slow things down a bit, in more ways then one.

  • I cant tell you how many people have told me that they have planted their tomatoes alreadysome nearly a month ago! Too early, too early! When it comes to spring fever the tomato is most abused. Gardeners just cant wait to get out and dig, which is understandable, but when it comes to tomatoes it is best to be patient.

    Tomatoes love two things: good drainage and heat. If you have struggled with tomatoes in the past consider what makes them most content when preparing the garden and setting your plants out.

  • * Cynthiana News, Aug. 1, 1867 -- Mr. Frisbie, the polite railroad agent at this place, has some enterprise in his composition. He has recently finished off a fine lot of cattle pens near the depot for the benefit of cattle, sheep, and hog drovers and shippers and has also put up scales, Fairbanks make, for the purpose of weighing hay, grain, and all kinds of stock. He keeps a coal yard and will weigh his coal hereafter, by that means giving a fairer return for the money.

  • When we first moved out to the farm in 1979 the first fruit that my parents planted were strawberries and peaches; undoubtedly there was some influence from Daddys good friend Joe Huber. Southern Indiana must have some strawberry influence because Ill be planting strawberries again this year thanks to another Floyds Knob friend, Bruce Eveslage, who gave me some Italian alpine strawberry plants to add to my potager garden. I feel a little rusty on the strawberry cultivation thing so I have refreshed my memory about growing this small, versatile fruit.
