  • WICHE: Shade devices slow bolting of spring vegetables

    We usually don’t even consider breaking out the old window screens until July, but I just got in from strategically placing screens over my spinach, greens and Brussels’ sprouts.

    It has undoubtedly been a hot spring: upper 80s in April with little deficit in rain fall calls for some early shade!

  • EARLIER: KY 55 yard sale taking no detour

    It can’t be a coincidence that at its beginning KY 55 intersects with U.S. 127.

    Now in its second year, the KY 55 yard sale aspires to one day attain the lofty status of the Highway 127 yard sale.

    With a Web site and Facebook page, 127 promotes its 654-mile sale with state-of-the-art videos and a countdown (112 days, 7 hours, 34 minutes and 55, 54, 53 seconds...), but the 55 sale just works its 147 miles behind the effort of Annie Eades and a few others involved with the Finchville Ruritan Club.
