  • Summer is sweeter with sweet corn

    Sweet corn is a favorite among home vegetable gardeners. Improved hybrid cultivars are easy to grow. They yield well, taste sweeter, and store longer than old time cultivars. Sweet corn is best adapted to larger gardens since only one or two ears are produced per plant and several rows are recommended to ensure adequate pollination. However, even small plantings can be successful if planted in blocks rather than rows.

As you know I do not use chemical pesticides in the vegetable garden. I will reach for a bio-insecticide if I must, however. Bio-insecticides include plant oils and compounds, naturally occurring bacteria, viruses and protozoa. We are essentially using nature to eat nature.

    Okay, she’s lost her mind. She’s going to have recipes for BURGERS in her column!

    Well, yes I am. We’ve got a holiday weekend coming up. Lots of people will be grilling burgers, and I just got a new cookbook.

    Raley Martin described studying at Eastern Kentucky University as a “privilege” in her commencement address to the College of Letters, Arts and Social Sciences on May 12. She chose that word for a reason.
    The Lebanon native believes that many students allow stress to steer them into thinking of their education as an “obligation rather than an opportunity.”
