    High Tunnel Field Day

  • 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.

  • Safe handling of chicks

    The intestinal tracts of all mammals have various types of bacteria as part of their natural intestinal microflora. 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:
