  • Some questions have come through the Extension Office recently involving these moldy-looking “things” on the bark of trees. What are they? Do they hurt the tree? Let us learn a little more…

    These living organisms are called lichens. A lichen is actually composed of two different organisms, an alga and a fungus, which grow together for the mutual benefit of one another. The fungus provides the structure to the lichen and the alga provides the food through photosynthesis.

  • Last week Ryan and Colton Gosser attended the state 4-H shooting sports camp. Colton participated in all disciplines of shooting sports and also received his hunter’s education certification.

  • Harvested during April and May in Kentucky, asparagus is a nutrient-dense vegetable that you can eat raw, lightly boil, steam, stir-fry or grill. It can be seasoned with herbs, butter or Parmesan cheese to enhance its flavor. As you will see in the Plate It Up Kentucky Proud recipe below, it can also be an integral ingredient in many dishes.

    Asparagus is a good source of vitamins A and C, folate and fiber. A half-cup serving of fresh asparagus, which is about six stalks, contains 22 calories, 2 grams of protein and 4 grams of carbohydrates.
