    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.

  •  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.
