    Harvest America simulcast

  • One of the sure signs of spring in Kentucky is the appearance of our own Kentucky Asparagus. We enjoy its fresh flavor from April through May. This versatile vegetable can be eaten raw, lightly boiled, steamed, grilled, stir fried or baked.

    Asparagus was first grown more than 2,000 years ago in the eastern Mediterranean region and was brought to America by the early colonists. It is the slender shoot of a perennial plant that ranges from pencil thin to about one-half inch in thickness. Our Kentucky farmers’ markets offer asparagus picked at its peak tenderness.

    FELONY

  • My husband and I grew up in two different cultures. He is an assimilated Hispanic from up North. I’m a Southerner who recently became vegan. How’s that for diversity? This blend of traditions has made life interesting at our home.

    Food has provided many opportunities for learning, growing and absolute, unmitigated horror.

  • Sometimes you go to church and you hear the same stuff over and over.

    Sometimes it flies over your head or you’re thinking about what’s for lunch and the pastor sounds like the teacher in the Charlie Brown cartoons going, “Waah, waah, waah,” and you have no idea what he said.

    And sometimes you hear something that you’ve heard before but for some reason it’s like you’re hearing it for the first time. Or maybe it’s the thing that you needed to hear precisely at that moment.

  • It is that time of year when the calendar and all of nature begins to tell us it is summertime!

    Traditionally and recreationally, we are told that summer begins with the celebration of Memorial Day. We all enjoy the good times that summer brings. Time for various outdoor activities that otherwise would not be suitable. But it is also good for us to take time before the hustle of summer activities to do some “remembering.” In fact, it is always good to pause in the hectic pace of life and purposefully make time to reminisce about the days and years gone by.

  • It’s that time of year again folks. The County Agricultural Investment Program (CAIP) is available for residents of Trimble County. This is a great opportunity for people who are interested in improving their operation or just beginning to start their own.

    Please take time to look into this and the education that is offered with this program. Folks have utilized this financial benefit for years and have been able to make improvements to their personal undertakings.

  • We all want to eat food that tastes good. One of the most common ways we make food taste good is by adding salt. Unfortunately, most American diets are too high in sodium. Diets high in sodium can raise blood pressure, which can lead to many major health issues including heart disease and stroke. Herbs provide a great way for us to limit our sodium intake while still consuming flavorful foods.

  • Cooking matters
