  • Pumpkins are a symbol of the fall season, and several acres are grown locally. Whether you grow or buy pumpkins, it is important to realize that careful harvesting and handling will help them last.

    Pumpkins should be harvested as soon as they are ripe and show a good orange color. Ripe pumpkins can be left in the field for a period of time and can tolerate light frost. Do not try to harvest when the fruit and vines are wet since this can lead to the development of fruit rot.

  • Heat stress reduces conception rate of cows to 30-35 percent and can result in fetal loss between 25-45 days of pregnancy. Both of these factors have lead to low pregnancy rates this year.

    Pregnancy checking of cattle is a valuable management tool to know about and deal with this situation. Checking for pregnancy will allow a beef producer to make timely culling decisions and focus resources on the sound, reliable breeders.

  • The Office of the State Climatologist and the Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet, in coordination with the Kentucky Drought Mitigation Team, are issuing a Level I Drought Declaration for five drought management areas in western and central Kentucky. These five areas are in addition to the three currently under the Level I declaration.

    Hardin, Grayson and Meade are within the new Level I drought declaration areas. Serious impacts to agricultural water needs, wildfire risk and other water-sensitive sectors can be expected in the designated areas.

  • When Lisa Nugent began raising butterflies, it was just a project intended to educate her children. But it soon grew to become a hobby and a source of joy.

    Nugent began raising butterflies about four years ago when a friend taught her about the process. A “home-school mom” of two sons, she began the butterfly project to teach her kids about life and science. When her sons lost interest in the butterflies, she remained fascinated, and now she raises the creatures for enjoyment.

  • Ragweed is a common problem to both allergy sufferers and to farmers. In late summer some people suffer allergic reactions to ragweeds and other plant pollens. Ragweed also has the potential to severely interfere with crop production and reduce crop yield.

    Individuals who are sensitive to the plant’s pollen are usually very aware of its presence. When plants begin to flower in August and early September, the airborne pollen is the culprit for the severe irritation to sensitive individuals. When exposed to the oil the plant produces, some people even develop a skin rash.

    The LaRue County Public Library and Lincolns Loft will celebrate the occasion with a “Curiosity Day” Saturday.
