  • Hello once again, my friends. Here we find ourselves on another glorious day, with spring right around the corner. With the coming of better weather we all start thinking about shaking off the winter doldrums and getting outside. Visions of working in the flower garden begin dancing in our heads. Mowing grass, gardening and more are now within reach. Of course, for those with children it’s also the coming of sports seasons. Baseball and softball are right around the corner, along with soccer and other outdoor ventures. All of this teams up to make meal planning more difficult.

  • Carroll County 4-H leader Jim Graves was honored with a state Community Service Award at the Kentucky 4-H Leaders Forum in Lexington, Feb. 13.

  • 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.
