A band of cats invaded our garage, capturing my dogged devotion

By Mary Garrison

If you had asked just more than a year ago, I’d have sworn to you I was a dyed-in-the-fur dog person.
I proclaimed my love for all animals — dolphins, dogs, elephants, frogs — but when it came to cats, I was uninterested. Never had a cat. Didn’t understand them — or their people, really. Required a preventative dose of Benadryl to stave off my sneezes when visiting their homes.
But a funny thing happened when I got to know a few felines who were hanging around our neighborhood.

Manure tea and other tips to grow wonderful potatoes

By Cheryl Steenerson

Cold weather wimp that I am, even I can work outside in this weather.
Well, once the frost thaws.
It was 26 degrees on the farm Good Friday morning  Great temps for the gravel truck to make it up my drive. I’ve been waiting since Christmas for the rain to stop and the clay like-mud to dry.

No magic food to provide all you need

A question was raised in the diabetes education class about which beans are healthier choices.
Specifically the class member wanted to know if beans were all about the same in the total amount of carbohydrates.
Several class members are starting to use carb counting as a method to improve their diet.

Take a class at Green Thumb University

By Cheryl Steenerson

Spring snows are so funny. No one runs out for milk and bread. It just sort of appears in the air, always making us feel colder.
I checked the Old Farmer’s Almanac and it was off by a week. Looking into April and beyond, I don’t see the word snow mentioned again, but “wet and cool” gets a lot of ink.

Send Easter egg hunt photos to the News

By Meaghan Downs

I found the Easter egg nestled among clean clothes in my laundry basket.
Not on Easter morning.
Weeks later.
An eight-hour drive later, after I was already back in my off-campus apartment in Seward, Neb.
After I finally decided to put my clothes away because that’s what adults do after they’ve finished using their parents’ washer and dryer.
Never fear; the egg contained individually wrapped candy, not a hardboiled center quick to stink and hasty to rot.

Singing tree frogs a sure sign of spring

By Cheryl Steenerson

The tree frogs are out and those boys sure can sing.
I love to listen to them but the other night it was wild. I have been taking hikes around the farm every day with the dogs and one night they were so loud I actually had to shout at the dogs so they could hear me.
They always make me smile, though, because they’re the harbingers of spring.

Know warning signs of dating violence

I don’t know that dating violence in Anderson County is much different than anywhere else in the state.
It’s usually somewhere under the radar for parents, school administrators and church leaders.
We just don’t talk about it. Kentucky is one of the few states that doesn’t allow the dating relationship to qualify for a protective order.

Raised beds prevent gardening problems

By Cheryl Steenerson

Minute by minute and hour by hour, we keep getting more sunlight every day.
I love it and even though we fell back an hour, I just feel like I have a little more time to do things. Only one more week to go and spring will officially be here. Yea, is all I can say. Another growing season is about to begin.
As someone who has been getting a lot of mud on her muck boots, it’s hard to even imagine a drought right now. I’ve been squishing and slipping all over the place while walking the farm with the dogs. It’s an evening ritual, now.

Canning a great way to preserve meat

Canning meat is included in the food preservation workshop that I will be teaching April 13.
Tommy Yankey, Extension agent for agriculture and natural resources, will be teaching gardening basics during this first session April 13.
The meat will be processing while we learn about gardening.
I can meat because I’m a tent camper. There’s only so long fresh meat will keep in a cooler. I get tired of canned chili, tuna and salmon.
