  • Kentucky has a rich tradition of hospitality and good food.

    A new web page on the College of Agri-culture Web site will help people make food connections. The site can be found at www.ca.uky.edu/foods.

    It will help people find Kentucky-grown foods in their county or surrounding area and give them more access to fresh fruits and vegetables.

  • Rain. Whether you have acres of grain crops or pasture, a garden, or lawn, this four-letter word is something we all need desperately.

    Up until this week, Carroll County had been listed by the U.S. Drought Index as abnormally dry.  However, the last report on July 10 placed Carroll County in Drought Level D1 – Moderate.

  •  With this heat we have been having, I am sure it’s just as hard for you as it is for me to decide what to prepare for every meal. 

    I sometimes just stand in front of the open refrigerator door and try to figure out what sounds good.  Then I think about all the fresh foods now coming from our gardens and try to determine the best way to prepare them.

    You know, we don’t always have to cook the food. Many times it is even better eaten raw.

    If you were to meet the Cary family, you wouldn’t know that four of their seven children are foster kids.

    Chris and Konnie Cary, of Carrollton, are parents to Joel, 14, Sarah, 11, Jacob, 11, Levi, 8, Gage, 6, Jordyn, 5, and Max, 2.

    They all work and play together like siblings, even though Jacob and the three youngest are only living with them temporarily.
