  • Have you ever had an idea that came to you while you were sleeping? You may not have been trying to think of an idea for something, it just came to you almost as a surprise.

    That’s what happened to me last week.  Of course, I knew I had my column to write, but I had already decided what I would write about, so why did something come to me in the middle of the night while I was sleeping so soundly? I guess my brain thought it was important.

  • We are offering two new 4-H projects for youth.

    4-H sewing

    I will be teaching 4-H sewing for youth later in April and May. This will be a beginning sewing project club. Youth wanting to learn to sew or those with some basic sewing skills who have taken a 4-H beginning sewing project before and who want to increase their sewing skills are invited. Sessions will be held from 4-6 p.m. at the Extension office on Thursdays, April 19 and 26 and May 3, 10, 17 and 24. 

  • Warmer-than-normal conditions this spring are causing a few concerns for apple growers. The biggest threats are cedar rusts and fire blight.

    Cedar rust galls are developing. As galls swell, they produce spores that threaten apple (and sometimes crabapple and hawthorn).

    Swelling galls were observed on cedar in Lexington in mid-March.  Warmer temperatures in Western Kentucky provided conditions for even earlier gall development.

    These galls indicate that rust pathogens are releasing or preparing to release infective spores.
