  • I hope everyone had a safe and exciting Memorial Day. After being outside most of the weekend with our granddaughter, I thought it would be a good time to remind everyone about Sun Safety for our children. It’s often said that the habits children learn at a young age carry over to adulthood. Safe sun exposure should be included in those healthy habits.

  • Young people often list butterflies among their favorite insects. Planting flowers these insects prefer can help attract more butterflies to your garden. Asking your 4-H’er to help gives you the opportunity to share gardening skills with them and helps instill in them an appreciation for these colorful insects and nature.
