  • Tips on gardening, weed control

    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.

  • Something for the summer bucket list

    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.

  • Kentucky Afield: Best kayaks for flat water fishing

    A car, truck or sport utility vehicle with a couple of kayaks on the roof with fishing poles visible through the back window is an increasingly common sight on Kentucky highways.

    Sales data shows kayak fishing and related kayak accessories increasing in popularity. Some of this popularity has to do with many baby boomers reaching retirement age and wanting a new hobby.

    Price is another aspect of the rise in popularity of kayak fishing. They are a replacement for a fishing boat for many people scared off by the rising cost of power boats.

  • Shooting Sports celebrates Father’s Day at the range

    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!
