    One of the things he said: Hope doesn’t always look the way you expect it to or want it to.

  • The garden is not bare in the winter, far from it. There is plenty of interest to delight the gardener, feed the birds, or provide shelter for a slug.  
    Short of having one of those unusual winters where the temperatures drop below zero for more than a week, there are quite a few interesting herbaceous perennials that persist through winter.  Design a perennial bed with them in it and you’ll always have something to enjoy.

  • By Jessica Sayre, County extension agent for Horticulture
    Each time you bring a load of firewood inside this winter, you could be opening the door for wood-infesting insects to make your home their home. Most insects brought into the home on firewood are harmless, and you can greatly reduce their numbers by following a few simple steps from the entomology department at the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture, Food and Environment.
