  • Fifty-four volunteers attended the Kentucky 4-H Volunteer Forum this past week and have come home with so many great ideas to make our 4-H program stronger. Carroll County was well represented with two of our 4-H entrepreur club members (Andrea Searcy and Haylee Joslin) selling their items and Jim and Sharon Graves selling their Kentucky Proud items. Madeline Watts is on the state performing arts troupe and sang with the other members of the group but sang the National Anthem as a solo.

  • Legumes in pastures bring nitrogen into grassland ecosystems via symbiotic nitrogen fixation, improve forage quality and animal performance, and dilute the toxic effects of the endophyte found in tall fescue. It is estimated that commonly used pasture legumes will fix between 50 and 200 pounds nitrogen per acre per year.

    Frost seeding clover, and in some cases annual lespedeza, is a simple and effective way to reintroduce legumes back into pastures. The following suggestions will help to enhance the success of frost seedings.

  • The “instant pot,” a small kitchen appliance, is the latest craze to hit the culinary world with consumers touting health benefits and ease of use in the trendy appliance.

    The Instant Pot is just one brand of multicooker. Several companies manufacture multicookers, such as the Instant Pot.  

    Multicookers have several different functions all contained in one unit. A single appliance can be used to steam, sauté, brown, slow cook, pressure cook, make yogurt or stir food while it is cooking. It depends on the unit design and brand.

  • No matter how many times we remind ourselves that “words can never hurt me,” we know better. We are careful about words, forbid certain words, and help people recover from certain words, because words obviously hurt us. Why else would people use them against their enemies? Why else do we fire people for using certain words? Why do we still remember most of the unkind words used against us? No, words work. And Jesus suggests in Matthew 5:21-26 that they work so well we should guard against them with the same energy we guard against the commandment against murder.
