  • When it comes to bulbs, we are not always met with consistent success. Before you blame the chipmunks, the guy who mows the grass or the bulb company for their lack-luster performance, consider some of the other factors that influence how well flowering bulbs flower. 

    Sunlight, crowded bulbs, pre-mature removal of foliage the previous season or a winter rest period that wasn’t cold enough or long enough may play a role in poor performance. 

  • •Mandy Marshall and Carlos Bras of Norfolk, Va. The wedding will be held on Oct. 10, 2009 at Kincaid Lake State Park in Pendleton County by invitation only.

  • Farm vs. specialty fertilizers

    Lawns can be fertilized with specialty turf fertilizers (normally available at local garden centers) or with farm fertilizers. The main advantages to the specialty fertilizers are:

    •Normally good nutrient ratios for turf.

    •Uniformity of particle size.

    •Low burn potential.

    •Calibration and application rate information printed on the bag.

    Most farm fertilizers do not have these advantages, but farm fertilizers are usually three to five time less expensive.

  • Well, we can certainly say it was a pleasant summer season so I am definitely not complaining… but it wasn’t the best year for tomatoes. Cool and wet is good for some, but not for the prized tomato.

  • At sunrise, our family crawled into our trusty Woody Bus.  Though sleepy, I was excited about our adventure. I knew with the challenges of camping that I needed my strength.  “Dad, before we leave town, can we run through the drive-through?  I’ve a hankering for a bacon sandwich.”

    “Woody, we haven’t left the driveway! Besides, we won’t be eating fast-food or stopping at restaurants. We’ll be having picnics with the food we packed.”

  • My golden opportunity! My chance to shine! My time to show my family that I’m a warrior, a champion, a real sportsman, uh, sportsdog!

    I’m sorry, I should introduce myself. I’m Mr. Dogwood, but my friends and family call me Woody. (Sometimes I’ll hear “Dogwood” if I’ve made a knucklehead decision or if my parents are trying to get my attention.) Anyway, I’m a black and tan miniature wiener dog who lives in the great state where I was born – Kentucky. That makes me “Woody, The Kentucky Wiener.”
