    Much like the highly anticipated London Summer Olympics, the first annual Zinnia Fest is now one for the record books, I am happy to report.

    The number of readers who stopped by Groundhog Hill more than tripled my estimate, and I thank them for coming. Hope they are still enjoying their flowers and are recounting to friends and family about their time visiting what very well may be The Garden Spot of the Universe.

  • Wheat test results are in

    Despite some concerns over fusarium head blight in wheat this spring, most LaRue County farmers had excellent wheat yields. Growers now are selecting the varieties they will grow for the 2013-14 crop.
