  • Wilt caused by more than heat in vegetable patch

    I can hardly wait for this year’s first harvest of summer squash.  
    Last year was a bust because of the heat so I have high hopes for a bumper squash crop this year.
    Mostly gardeners complain about losing their plants to the squash vine borer, but I have managed mostly to offset that pest pressure by delaying planting in order to miss peak egg-laying time.  
    I have also used row covers, lifting them in the morning so bees can do their pollinating then covering them during the day when mama wasp of the vine borer does her work.

  • You’re being watched, so buckle up

    The two-week target dates for Click It or Ticket have come and gone, but don’t think that Sgt. Wilbur Gross of the Cynthiana Police Department will be getting lax on seat belt tickets.
    Between May 23 and June 5, there were 111 seat belt citations issued as well as six citations for failure to use proper child restraint device.
    Just because the national campaign weeks have passed, don’t be lulled into believing that no one’s paying attention to your driving habits.
