  • Exploration leads to discovery at Kids Crew

    Children at Kids Crew Plus have been busy “Exploring our World” this summer.

    That’s the theme of the day care operated by LaRue County Schools at the district’s central office in Hodgenville.

    The 30 children, ranging from three to 12 years old, have visited several area sites, including Abraham Lincoln’s birthplace in May.

    “In June the children began learning about historic Bardstown,” said Denise Rose, program director.

    As I was mowing the garden the other day (that’s right, mowing — don’t judge.), the following thought occurred to me: This year’s garden at Groundhog Hill is both the prettiest and the ugliest garden I’ve ever tended.

    Beautiful zinnias planted in hedge-like rows. Check. Stately sunflowers about to bloom. Check. Johnson grass. Check.

    Rows of marigold overgrown with crabgrass. Check. Squash plants dying of wilt. Check. Rows of basil that never came up. Check.

    Pumpkin plants that still hold promise. Check.

  • Heat wave is affecting corn pollination

    Much of LaRue County’s corn crop is pollinating (or did pollinate) as daytime temperatures reached the highest for the season. According to the LaRue County Mesonet site, temperatures have peaked out in the upper 80s to low 90s for several days. This is causing some concern regarding pollination of corn during these high daytime temperatures.
