    How-ever, other weeds, such as dandelions, have become more prevalent in recent years, according to J. D. Green, an Extension weed specialist at the University of Kentucky.
    Dandelions are generally considered a major lawn or pasture weed, but increasingly have been found in grain-crop fields.

  • This Thanksgiving go green and keep in mind the local economy by following these simple tips.
    First, when decorating indoors and out, consider using items from your backyard – pine branches or dried flowers, dried leaves and branches, and, of course, gourds. Or, if you have farming friends, see if they have hale bales, dried cornstalks, or dried corn cobs, or pumpkins that you can buy or barter for. Also consider checking out the local farmers’ market for organic decorations.
