  • Navigating a farmers market helps the local economy

    Farmers markets provide a chance for the public to get high-quality, fresh foods and support farmers in their community. Selling at the markets gives farmers a chance to tell others about their operation and agriculture in general.

    In the past few years, people’s interest in farmers markets has climbed. The renewed interest is likely due to people trying to improve their diets and increasing awareness about the environmental benefits of buying foods from local farmers. 

  • Unseasonably warm temperatures bring termites

    Just Monday morning I saw my first termite advertisement on cable TV. Pest control companies are gearing up for an active termite season. Unseasonably warm springtime temperatures and rain have brought about earlier insect activity. This is typically when we see many winged termites emerge inside homes and other structures according to Mike Potter, UK Extension Entomologist. Termites swarm from the colony to disburse, fall to the ground, find mates and start new colonies in the soil.

  • Implementing the skill of listening

    Have you ever met someone who seems to enjoy talking just for the joy of hearing themselves speak? They go on and on and don’t seem to need a response, or allow time for one. It is as though they are filling the space around themselves with their own words. Time goes by and you find yourself wanting to get away from them. Perhaps this person just never learned good conversational skills which are based on listening. Everyone wants an opportunity to have their say and to be validated.

  • Getting back to the garden

    When we first moved to Florida, our oldest daughter was 14 and not happy about the move. Being 14, she cried. A lot.

    One of her many places of tears was Sunken Gardens, the old Florida attraction in St. Petersburg. It’s supposedly the oldest commercial tourist attraction on Florida’s west coast and one of the first botanical gardens in the U.S.

    In 1903, George Turner, Sr., a plumber and avid gardener, bought the site, which included a shallow lake, 10 feet below sea level. He drained it and planted a “sunken” garden.
