  • There is nothing better than a fresh ripe peach. The peach is a member of the rose family. It was first cultivated in China and revered as a symbol of longevity. The image was placed on pottery and received as a gift with great esteem. Travelers along caravan routes carried the peach seed to Persia before it was cultivated in Europe. In the early 1600s Spanish explorers brought it to the New World and by the 1700s missionaries had established peaches in California. The United States now produces 25 percent of the total world market for peaches.

  • You can prevent hay bale or barn fires if you bale hay at appropriate moistures and monitor the temperature of recently baled hay. Generally, hay will go through a heating phase within one to two weeks after baling. During this time, you should monitor the hay to make sure it doesn’t reach temperatures that can damage the hay or lead to spontaneous combustion.

  • At my church this summer we’re learning about the “hard sayings” of Jesus.
    He said stuff like, “I have not come to give peace but division,” “Judge not” and “Let the dead bury the dead.”
    He also said we could ask for stuff -- “Ask and it will be given to you” and that “everyone who asks receives” (Luke 11:9-10).
    He said, “You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it” (John 14:13-14).
    My pastor called it “the big ask.”
