    CLASS OF 1990

  • I have long understood that purslane could be used in salads or soups, but have never made much of an effort to harvest and devise a kitchen plan until know. 

    I had this fabulous stand of the weed in my kitchen garden after I pulled the old greens that bolted from the summer heat. It made perfect sense to let it grow and flourish because no lettuce seed would be germinating in this heat and I knew that this garden was free from any herbicides.

    So, the purslane established and I have turned young and old alike onto its culinary virtues.

  • * Cynthiana Democrat, Nov. 30, 1950 - “Raging Blizzard - Snowdrifts in Rural Areas as High as 12 Feet - A raging blizzard Satuday night resulting in snow drifts as high as 12 feet in some rural areas, left Cynthiana and Harrison County locked in the heaviest snowfall since January, 1936. With the exception of the L & N Railroad all transportation facilities serving the city were brought to a standstill.

  • 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.

  • We should use more crape myrtles in Kentuckiana, they are not just for more warm, temperate climates; in fact, there are a great many that go unbothered by an average winter in our parts. 

    There is often a lull in the garden at this time, our early summer blooms are fading and our late summer garden has yet to pop; but the crape myrtle can provide a colorful bridge between the two. This summer blooming shrub is in full glory by the end of July through August, the months of high summer, as I like to call it.
