  • Nutrients key to harvest

    We have spent over 10 years improving our vegetable garden by adding composted horse manure, composted sheep manure and composted chicken manure at the end of each season.  
    The result is a seriously well-drained plot that has the capacity to retain moisture and slowly feed what we plant.  
    I am so looking forward to the vegetable garden this year because last year was such a disappointment.
    As the garden improves, I plant things a little closer together. Fortunately this practice is acceptable and encouraged today.  

  • Yield Not to Temptation

    One of my favorite hymns is Yield not to Temptation. It contains words and tune by Horatio R. Palmer. The first line, of this well-known church song, states, “Yield not to temptation, for yielding is sin; each victory will help you some other to win; fight manfully onward, dark passions subdue; look ever to Jesus, He’ll carry you through.”  
    This hymn shouts the message that Christians need to strive for victory over the temptation to commit sin. It is the victories, not defeats in life, that give us testimonies.

  • Millersburg Garden Club’s Monarch Waystation dedicated on June 7

    According to directives from The Garden Club of Kentucky, Millersburg Garden Club established a Monarch Butterfly Waystation at the Millersburg Cemetery in 2014. The garden is thriving and many Monarchs and other pollinators have been spotted there. The Waystation was created with the hope that it might help the beautiful Monarch Butterflies survive their long, arduous trip to New Mexico and the southernmost coasts of the United States.

  • A chronic case of CRS

    Although I don’t think it’s terminal, it is chronic: I have a chronic case of CRS -- Can’t Remember Stuff.
    That’s the diagnosis one of my co-workers gave me the other day. He may or may not have been joking.
    I tell people all the time to please, please, please remind me of stuff. It’s the CRS, folks. I just can’t remember.
    At least I’m not alone. The ancient Israelites had it too. They were always forgetting stuff, mostly the stuff God had done for them, even rescuing them from years of slavery in Egypt.

  • Three good stream floats for smallmouth bass, one in Harrison County

    Kentucky Afield associate editor

    Fishing for many species slows in the daytime hours during the heat of summer, but smallmouth bass who inhabit Kentucky streams bite willingly even on the hottest days.
    Kentuckians who enjoy canoeing or kayaking are lucky to live in a state with bountiful amounts of cool, flowing water that hold smallmouth bass. It is hard to beat a summer day spent paddling a tree canopied Kentucky stream, navigating stream drops and catching smallmouth after smallmouth.
