  • Spring is here, and what a welcomed sight it is!

    After experiencing two very cold winters, this past winter has been rather mild.  Because of the mild temperatures, it is a good chance that slugs have survived, which may cause our plants some issues.

    Slugs use their rasping mouthparts to tear tissue from leaves, stems, and flowers.  New transplants and small seedlings are especially vulnerable to these creatures.  Feeding damage and silvery slime trails on bedding plants is a sign of the creatures.

  • We all want to eat food that tastes good. One of the most common ways we tend to make food taste good is by adding salt. Unfortunately, most American diets are too high in sodium. Diets high in sodium can raise blood pressure, which can lead to many major health issues including heart disease. Herbs provide a great way for us to limit our sodium intake while still consuming flavorful foods.

  • In just a few weeks, the Easter bunny will be hippity-hoppiting into many Kentucky homes. Along with the annual visit from our long-eared friend, coloring Easter eggs is one of the favorite holiday activities for children of all ages. While many of us are accustomed to purchasing the little dye tablets from the store, you can also use natural ingredients to get colorful results.

     Ingredients like fresh beets, yellow onion skins and fruit juices can dye eggs. Here’s a list of natural dye sources and the colors they produce.

  • There is always something special about the transition from winter to spring for me.  Grass greening, daffodils blooming, buds beginning to show on the trees—it is truly a wondrous sight to see the earth waking up after its long winter slumber.

    Underneath those pretty flowers and fresh grass, the soil temperatures are warming up which means planting season is on its way and the farmer’s market season will arrive soon.

  • Kroger Relay For Life bake sale will be held Saturday, March 19, starting at 10 a.m.
