  • What the kids don’t learn in school

    I made my first trip to the Coach Pitch portion of River Road Park last night, which brought back memories of only a few short years ago when Steve Slucher and I coached the Cardinals. 

    In fact, last night the Cardinals were in one of the games I watched and they were still wearing the helmets that my daughter, Amanda, cleaned up and painted for us to use. 

    The Mudcats, Riley’s team, lost to the Cardinals in a good game where fun was had by almost all.

  • Rollercoaster of wet, cool, dry and hot

    According to our weather forecasters, it looks like we are getting ready for another swing in our weather. 

    The cool, wet weather pattern was great for my peas, greens and potatoes, but I am starting to think maybe I should have waited one more week before putting the tomatoes and peppers out. 

    Our rollercoaster ride from hot and dry to cool and wet and back again is good news for some and bad for others.

    So how do precipitation and temperature affect plants? Well, in every way possible.
