  • Thorobreds drop home opener and Thursday road game to Cardinals

    Bishop Brossart’s Lady Mustangs showed that they are ready to defend the 10th Region title as they rolled by the Harrison County Fillies 8-0 Wednesday in northern Kentucky.

  • Cover crops prove multi-purpose

    While I will admit that half of my vegetable garden looks dreadful, the other half is holding steady because we mulched paths with a heavy layer of wood chips, filled unplanted beds with cover crops and have weeded the rest by hand and hoe.  
    I started using cover crops about five years ago and I am sold on the multi-purpose usefulness.  
    While many disease pathogens winter over on plant debris and an equal amount remain viable in the soil, it means we need to strategize to keep the garden relatively clean.
