  • They survived. That is the 61 campers and 13 adults and teens that attended 4-H Camp last week.

    It was hot, but we had a great week and I hope that they want to go back next year. We had a great bunch of leaders at camp and three were there for the first time, Levi Underwood, Traci Morgan and Crystal Richards. The other adult leaders were Crystal Franklin, Sharon Hopkins and Kayla Stewart. Our great teen leaders were Haley Hendrick, Nikki Hill, Nicky States, Jamie Glauber, Cameron Logsdon, Conner Dermon and Taylor Hill.

  • With all the ripe summer produce, I have been teaching food preservation workshops to help you learn proper methods of “putting up food” for those cold winter months ahead.

  • I do not know about you, but I have been busy putting up pickle relish.

    I have cucumbers coming out my ears, and that is remarkable since in the past I have told you how good we are at growing zucchini. 

    I picked a cucumber the other day that must weigh three pounds.  Of course, it wasn’t used for the relish.
