  • When we first moved out to the farm in 1979 the first fruit that my parents planted were strawberries and peaches; undoubtedly there was some influence from Daddys good friend Joe Huber. Southern Indiana must have some strawberry influence because Ill be planting strawberries again this year thanks to another Floyds Knob friend, Bruce Eveslage, who gave me some Italian alpine strawberry plants to add to my potager garden. I feel a little rusty on the strawberry cultivation thing so I have refreshed my memory about growing this small, versatile fruit.

  • We winter over a great many tropicals from year to year. I have angle wing begonias, agapanthus, dipladenia, gardenia and a growing collection of succulents that spend the winter in a restful state in the windowed basement.

But things are changing outside so I am getting everyone ready for the big move.

  • MUSEUM MUSINGS,

    * Cynthiana Democrat, Oct. 15, 1942 - Scrap Drive WW2 - AD day Monday everywhere one looked he saw scrap metal. Children with wagons, wheelbarrows, carrying in baskets, sacks, men in their own or borrowed trucks, joh wagons pulled by two horses, passenger cars unloading precious metal, all joined to make a scene most pleasing to local citizens, but unpleasing to the Nazis. Several merchants loaned trucks to haul big loads. Much scrap was being dumped into the court house yard. This is donated and will be sold.
