  • During the summer my grocery bills are pretty modest. My vegetable garden keeps us well-supplied in fruits and vegetables. The goal now is to turn the summer bounty into something we can use in the winter, too. I am getting much better at putting up my homegrown produce.

  • *Lexington Herald, May 7, 1955, by Rebecca Patton Miller, correspondent -- Historic Harrison County House sells for - thats right- $35. The red brick house on West Pike Street was sold at public auction recently for the magnificent sum of $35. Only catch is - Riley Dennis who bought it has to move it. The land beneath it had been sold previously for a new Kroger supermarket and the house was auctioned as a means of getting it out of the way. The house, overlooking the South Licking River, was built by Dr. Gavin Morrison.

  • Sometimes the harder I try to understand the workings of nature, the more confused I get. I think I am finally working through the confusion in the case of witches broom, a distortion of plant growth where twigs, leaves or other plant parts are densely clustered together. My advice when gardeners question the odd formation is plant pathologists dont completely understand it but once its there, its thereprune it out and hope for the best; or remove the plant all together. Not very optimistic, I know.

  • Does your lawn need some attention? I generally dont worry about the lawn too much; I just make sure that I mow properly to maintain a relatively healthy stand of fescue. Sure there are a few weeds here and there but I prefer not going to toxic extremes to be perfect.

  • UK DEANS LIST

    The University of Kentucky recognizes the academic performance of 17 students from Harrison County who were named to the UK Deans List for the spring 2008 semester.

  • I received a call the other day about what to do with a blue spruce covered in bagworms. The tree is apparently covered (and large) so hand-picking was not an option. The caller said the pest was rather large, too, so I had to recommend a systemic insecticide as the treatment. I prefer that we catch the bagworms earlier in the season so that we can take a biological approach but this is not always the case.

  • All indications suggest there are more first time gardeners this year then ever; and I been fielding questions from many of them. This is good news all around but this season has been a bit unusual. Ever season is unusual, really, if there is one thing I have learned its that gardening and its associated chores do not follow the calendar.
