  • I heard someone lamenting their crabgrass the other day; they were convinced that this was the worst year ever.  Maybe so, but usually by this time crabgrass rears its ugly head and begins to creep through our fescue lawns, sneak into our cultivated beds and, when we’re not looking, reseed its self to ensure the continuation of the species.

    Sounds a bit sinister for a grass, I suppose, but it sure is difficult to control.

  • It seems that once again we, meaning the collective gardening public, have disregarded the imperative known as diversity… It applies to the plant world, too.

    Before I get into the specifics of one current problem (and there are more than one) let me reflect on our past mistakes when biodiversity has been ignored.

  • More than 550,000 eggs were recently recalled due to an outbreak of salmonella. Although Kentucky has not yet been affected by the most recent outbreak following safe handling and cooking practices are your best method to keep your family safe.

    Salmonella is a bacteria that can cause intestinal illnesses in humans. The infections can be life threatening especially for infants and your children, pregnant women and their unborn babies, older adults and people with weakened immune systems, such as those with HIV/AIDS, cancer, diabetes, kidney disease and transplant patients.
