  •  The flash flooding we have experienced recently can take a toll on a vegetable garden, and gardeners should consider how floodwaters could affect the garden.

    The first consideration for the gardener would be the source of the floodwaters. Rain water or water from a potable water source or uncontaminated source does not carry the same potential hazards as water from a river, septic field or other potentially contaminated source.

  • As a young boy I did not have any pets, and as I grew up and had my own family I had no anticipation of a pet or pets showing up in our household. Then, we met him one dayat the campground, a lonely cat that somehow attached himself to our family and our Kentucky Fried Chicken.

    Yes, this copper and white-colored cat would not leave our campsite, even after the food was gone. Our two boys started asking, “Can we keep him, Dad? Can we?”
