  • There’s still time to plant that garden!

    When is the latest you should seed carrots in Central Kentucky? What about those coveted, sweet fall greens? Is it already too late to start late tomatoes?

    Timing things right for a great fall harvest may start earlier than you think. Long before cool weather rolls in, farmers with foresight are prepping fields and seeding rows to extend their harvests and profits. High tunnels, low tunnel, and greenhouse growers are able to extend even later, but these general dates can help you determine when to make your move for your best autumn harvest yet.

There are many opportunities for young children to be exposed to these bacteria, such as pets, friends, etc. Our state’s most recent salmonella outbreak is a harsh reminder of this as many of the victims are children. Here are some reminders:

  • Fireflies: more than nighttime beauty They help control some garden pests

    If you grew up in any rural area, odds are, you have a childhood memory of catching fireflies. I remember having a mason jar with screen material screwed down tight and full to the brim with fireflies. It would finally get to the point where every one I’d try to get in there, two or three would fly out.  I’d set it next to my bed to be my nightlight for the night and thought it was the coolest thing next to my awesome Sesame Street bed sheets.
