  • I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, I certainly did.  Most of my family lives in the Indianapolis area, so we usually go there. We have so much fun together.

    I always remember the family meals we had when we were very young, and what I continually reflect on is all the laughter. I am proud to say, especially since I am now the ‘older’ generation, that we have certainly carried on the tradition.

  • During the holidays extra tiny tastes of food may not make a difference in the short run, but little bits from now through New Year’s can result in unwelcome weight gains. During the holiday season I find it hard to resist sampling the food I am preparing or baking. Plus, there are more special social occasions with great food. 

    Here are a few strategies to help curb your tendency to take many tiny tastes:

    • Chew gum when cooking or baking.

  • The Agriculture Water Quality Act was passed by the Kentucky legislature in 1994. It states that landowners with 10 or more acres in agricultural production must develop a water quality plan.

    If you farm 10 or more acres or plan to harvest trees on 10 or more acres in Kentucky, then you are required by state law to implement an agriculture water quality plan. 

    This plan documents the best management practices you’re using to protect water resources.
