  • There are two categories of garlic to consider: Allium sativum, or soft-neck garlic and Allium ophioscordon or hard-neck garlic.   
    Soft-neck garlic is the easiest and most widely cultivated because the bulbs are large and the cloves and skin are tight, which prevent moisture loss and allows for longer storage.  
    Through centuries of selection soft-neck garlic has lost the ability to flower so it doesn’t expend energy on producing seed; instead the energy goes towards developing bigger bulbs underground.   

  • In an effort to educate children and their families about the importance of food safety, U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Ad Council are joining 20th Century FOX to launch a series of public service advertisements (PSAs) featuring Alvin and the Chipmunks. The PSAs use footage from the upcoming film Alvin & the Chipmunks: The Road Chip to introduce viewers to four steps to food safety: clean, separate, cook and chill.

  • The other morning I ate breakfast in the moonlight.
    The temperature outdoors was several degrees cooler than the temperature indoors, so I took my bowl of Cinnamon Chex/Fiber One with unsweetened almond milk and my cup of coffee, opened the sliding glass door that separates the living room from the back screened-in porch and sat at the high-top tile table.
    It was early — I’m a ridiculously early riser — and it was still dark out except for a sliver of a moon.

  • As Halloween approaches, people think of scary things like witches, spiders, and haunted houses, but what is actually scary is the fact that each day 22 children, men and women in America die needlessly. As superhero capes are fitted, what Kentuckians don’t realize that everyone can be a superhero all year long, costume not necessary. Simply by saying “yes” at your Circuit Clerk’s office and becoming a registered organ donor.
