  • Father’s Day was an exciting day for me being the 4-H agent for Carroll County.

    Every Sunday the shooting sports program has trap shooting on the property of Becky Kinman behind Kinman Chevrolet. (Thank you so much, Becky, for allowing Carroll County 4-H the opportunity to use your facility). June 18, was Father’s Day, and fathers and grandfathers joined the youth at the shooting range. What a great way to spend time with their children!

  • With the Fourth of July this coming week, there will be many people outdoors grilling hamburgers, barbecued chicken or vegetables throughout the neighborhood, reminding us of the thrill of grilling out. Just about any food that can be broiled or roasted can be cooked on a grill.

  • Home gardeners look forward to that first ripe tomato or ear of corn they pick from their carefully tended gardens, but after some vigorous gardening on a hot, humid day, you may wonder if it is all worth it.  Of course it is!

    Weeds compete with crops for water, nutrients and sunlight.  Some weeds, like quackgrass, can chemically inhibit vegetable plant growth. Others host insect pests and disease pathogens.  All of these result in fewer fresh vegetables for your table.  Let us consider some approaches to tackling weeds in our gardens.

  • At the beginning of the summer, my wife and kids came up with a “Summer Bucket List.” It is a list of things that they would like to do before school starts back up in August. They have big plans that include a lot of swimming and time with friends and family.

    I am very glad that they did this, because my experience with summer is that it flies by quickly. Everyone is excited when school lets out, then before you know it, it is the fourth of July. Throw in a family trip and couple of cook outs and, all of a sudden, August has arrived and the break is over.

  • What excellent 4-H/Open Livestock Shows we had this year at the Carroll County Fair!

    This year’s shows included dairy cattle, dairy goat, beef cattle, poultry, rabbit, swine, dog, sheep, meat goat, and horse. Ten great shows in seven days!

    I would like to send my most sincere thanks to the following volunteers that helped us this year:

  • Five 4-H teens attended the Kentucky 4-H Teen Conference last week in Lexington, Ky., on the campus of the University of Kentucky. They each attended workshops where they learned new skills to bring back to Carroll County and teach to younger 4-H members.
