  • * Log Cabin, Sept. 14, 1906 - “Beautiful souvenir cards showing scenes, churches etc. of Cynthiana, have just been placed on sale at Jett’s drug store. The lot of 8,000 cards comprises 10 varieties. The Log Cabin office printed the cards.” (Some of those cards would be ideal for the museum collection. Do you have some that you might share?)

  • I can’t tell you how many people have told me that they have planted their tomatoes already… some nearly a month ago! Too early, too early! 

    When it comes to spring fever, the tomato is most abused. Gardeners just can’t wait to get out and dig, which is understandable, but when it comes to tomatoes, it is best to be patient.

    Tomatoes love two things:  good drainage and heat. If you have struggled with tomatoes in the past, consider what makes them most content when preparing the garden and setting your plants out.

  • Driving into town the other day I was depressed about how this mulch thing has really gotten out of hand.  Every tree looked like a telephone pole sticking out of a rounded mound or orange-looking mulch. 

    All I could think was “poor trees.” I keep writing about it, but is doesn’t seem people are getting the message that too much mulch is a bad thing. 

    I know, some people have been liberated, but we still have some more work to do.  The bottom line: Two inches of coarse mulch that is not piled around the trunk.
