What Makes A Soil?

Last week's column asserted that soil is the foundation of our agricultural industry and a scarce resource. This week let's start to examine why. First, 70% of the surface of the earth is covered with water. Of the remaining 30%, only 11% is considered arable, suitable for farming, or approximately 3.3% of the total of the earth's surface. Of that total, well over half has been degraded to some extent. Often that degradation is due to soil erosion (loss of the soil) by air or water. Why is that a big deal? A large part of ...

Sidedressing

At this time of year, many gardeners are starting vegetables indoors, or preparing to buy small plants to transplant into their garden when the soil temperature is warm enough. To help with this process, it is sometimes a good idea to give the small plants a little extra fertilizer to help them get a good start. I found a column from the K-State Research and Extension's horticulture department that gives some good advice on transplant solutions and sidedressing to help you give your garden the best start possible.

What REALLY Happens in a Turkey Blind!

It has been a fairly hectic week. I have a group of friends from Canada who come to spend a week hunting turkeys with traditional archery. It is funny to watch spectacular hunters who successfully hunt moose, caribou, elk, deer, bear and other big game with their long bows and recurves get the "shakes" over a turkey.

Their eyesight is so good, and their hearing is so sensitive--it ...
