  • Edible flowers tasty and pretty

    I think about food so much this time of the year because vegetables abound.  
    I just came home from working at Courtney Farms in Bagdad, Ky., with a load of vegetables that will be presented to Community Supported Agriculture subscribers for a weekend gathering of shared experiences and shared food.  
    We are combining our farming efforts to bring food to local families and that includes the pretty things that can be added and eaten in the mix.

  • Use common sense when celebrating independence

    I’ve never been a huge fan of fireworks.
    They scare me and I fear for the person setting them off. I just get nervous and jittery.
    I suppose I’ve written too many stories about the hazards of fireworks over the years; each one starting off with a horror story about something exploding before it should have, someone losing a finger or their body being burned.
    Not comfortable around fireworks doesn’t even come close to my fears.
