  • Cover crops are multi-purpose

    While I will admit that half of my vegetable garden looks dreadful, the other half is holding steady because we mulched paths with a heavy layer of wood chips, filled unplanted beds with cover crops and have weeded the rest by hand and hoe.

    While many disease pathogens winter-over on plant debris (and an equal amount remain viable in the soil) it means we need to strategize to keep the garden relatively clean.

  • Ways to handle fall yard waste

    By Jessica Sayre, County extension agent for Horticulture
    Fall is a beautiful time in Kentucky gardens, but it can also be a messy time. Tree leaves turn from green to vibrant fall colors and then drop, creating big piles. Then there are the leaves and spent shoots from our flower beds.
