  • 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.

  • I am sure many of you are familiar with the old refrain, “Good night, sleep tight. Don’t let the bed bugs bite.” Until just a few years ago, I can’t recall ever receiving a question about bed bugs.  
    But recently, bed bugs have been the topic of local and national news stories. They have infiltrated private homes and public areas, and we’ve received information about these infestations during Extension trainings.

  • Autumn is my favorite season. I really enjoy the myriad of fall colors and the clear blue sky that signals harvest time.

    Although the anticipated fall color was somewhat mixed, the season still brings piles of leaves from our trees and spent shoots from our gardens and flower beds. 

    The way you address this yard waste can have a significant impact on your garden and the environment.

  • The first signs of frost let us know that cold weather will be here soon. As winter approaches, now is a good time to improve your home’s energy efficiency. 

    There are several no-cost or low-cost improvements you can make to your home to reduce your winter heating bills. 

    To extend the life of your furnace and air conditioner, for example, replace furnace and air-conditioning filters on a monthly basis. If you have pets in your home, you may want to check your filters more often.
