  • Washing the car

    I’m afraid to wash my car. On my list of neurotic behavior this is one of the most embarrassing; second only to being unable to sleep with the closet door open. This will be explained in a subsequent article.

  • Farms to Food Banks program accepting produce, eggs

    Berea, KY – This summer, Kentucky farmers have an opportunity to recover losses for their unmarketable product while helping fight hunger. Through the Farms to Food Banks program, the Kentucky Association of Food Banks (KAFB) reimburses farmers for the cost of picking, packaging, and transporting their surplus or Number 2 - grade produce to a food bank. Eggs from Kentucky farmers are also being accepted for the first time this year.  

  • Delicious Kentucky peaches

    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.

  • Preventing hay fires

    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.
