  • Tractor Supply Company in Cynthiana invites parents to unlock the hidden potential of their backyard with a family garden.
    To introduce children to the joy of growing food in their backyard, Tractor Supply is hosting Get Growing, a five-day gardening event May 11-15. During the main event on Saturday, May 14, the store will feature a “first seed” station for children to plant a seed, take it home and watch it grow.
    The Get Growing event will also feature community groups and activities, including cookout and pet adoption:

  • The most common form of plant propagation is digging and dividing, which is best done in early spring before new growth or in the fall before plants go dormant.
    Digging and dividing is great for herbaceous plants but those plants that are considered woody ornamentals do not divide as easily with a spade. In this case we can look to the technique of rooting out softwood cuttings from the mother plant.
    Greenhouses have stock plants that they maintain from year to year to provide the cuttings for each year’s new generation.

    Attention anyone with a closet: Those shoes you no longer want are desperately needed to fight the human tragedy of global poverty.
    That’s the message being delivered by KidCountry, the Children’s ministry of Connersville Christian Church, which has launched a drive to collect 10,000 pairs of shoes to help the poor.  Used and new shoes can be dropped off at Connersville Christian Church.
    Connnersville Christian Church, 2190 Ky. Hwy. 1842 E., will accept shoes between May 1 and June 24.


  • When I was a young boy I would go with my Dad and my Grandpa to pick blackberries. We would always take several empty “Partridge Lard” cans to put the berries in as we picked them. While we were gone “berry pickin,” Mom and Grandma would be washing and cleaning jars and rings and other items in preparation to make delicious blackberry jam and jelly on that  “Warm Morning”, wood burning, cookstove in Grandma’s kitchen.

  • Note: On May 3, my husband and I will be married 41 years. I’ve adapted this column from 2009.
    While out for our semi-regular Sunday drive, as I flipped through the radio stations I asked my husband what kind of music he liked.
    That’s the kind of questions you ask on a first date, not after 41 years of marriage!
    I’m not sure what that says about the state of our marriage. You don’t even know what kind of music your husband likes?
