  • Sometimes you go to church and you hear the same stuff over and over.
    Sometimes it flies over your head or you’re thinking about what’s for lunch and the pastor sounds like the teacher in the Charlie Brown cartoons going, “Waah, waah, waah,” and you have no idea what he said.
    And sometimes you hear something that you’ve heard before but for some reason it’s like you’re hearing it for the first time. Or maybe it’s the thing that you needed to hear precisely at that moment.

  • I love backpacking. The thought of putting 40 pounds of food and gear on your back and traipsing 50 miles through the wilderness doesn’t appeal to everyone, but to me, it’s one of my favorite things to do.  
    When I was in my early 20’s, I went backpacking in New Mexico with a bunch of scouts to Philmont Scout Ranch.  A great group of guys.

    You can control pest problems, and perhaps prevent future difficulties, in your garden by doing some advance planning and following a few simple Integrated Pest Management practices. IPM promotes minimal pesticide use and emphasizes the use of all available pest control methods including cultural, mechanical and biological practices to prevent pest problems.

  • After the heat wave in mid-May, flea beetles seemed to have settled on just about everything I had growing in the garden.  
    Bok choy, potatoes, tomatoes and turnips looked as if they were shot full of tiny holes. I pick and squish and drown but that doesn’t really work with the tiny flea beetle.  
    As you know, I do not use chemical pesticides in the vegetable garden. I will reach for a bio-insecticide if I must, however.

  • We enjoyed sweet potatoes all winter long from a fantastic harvest last fall.  In fact, I still have a crate full in the basement that will feed us this summer. I planted out about 25 organic slips purchased from Country Corner Greenhouse in Shepherdsville in late May and by early November we had 4 nursery crates full of one of nature’s perfect foods!  7 months and counting in storage with no spoilage is impressive.  

  • CITY ON A HILL
    Just a reminder that City on a Hill Church is no longer meeting at the old Berry Lumber Co. Building. We are now holding services every Sunday in the Community room at the Cynthiana-Harrison County Public Library.
    Connect time is 9-9:45 a.m. for some recreation and Bible Study for our youth with the youth Pastor. Adults will also meet for fellowship in the community room at these times. Service will begin at 10 a.m. with live worship. Come as you are and worship with us.
