It Only Makes Sense…

May is both National High Blood Pressure Education Month and Stroke Awareness Month. It only makes sense to acknowledge both of these disease processes at the same time because when you control your blood pressure you greatly reduce your risk of stroke---which is the fourth leading cause of death in the United States.

Questions about Carpenter bees

Lately, I have had a few questions about Carpenter Bees, and what to do about them when they start becoming a nuisance on your property. I contacted Dr. Robert Bauernfeind, a K-State Research and Extension specialist and State Leader Entomologist to learn a little more about Carpenter Bees, and what to do about them when their benefits as pollinators no longer outweigh the problems of having them close by. He sent out an article that I wanted to share with you. If you have any questions, contact us at 620-793-1910.

Kids and Vegetables

Summer is almost here and that means kids will be eating more meals and snacks at home. Keeping those meals and snacks healthy over the summer can be easy with a little planning. Following the MyPlate food guide system for healthy eating tells us that half of your plate should be filled with fruits and vegetables. Another generous portion of whole grains and a small portion of lean protein round out the healthy plate.

One Life to Live

The answers to the questions from two weeks ago are at the end. Old-timers say wheat has nine lives. It's safe to assume wheat has used up eight and is on its last one after this growing season. As of now it appears the wheat heads escaped the cold snaps in April with little obvious damage to the head or stems but the stem damage may show up if hot, dry conditions set in. A few fields this past week did exhibit some obvious head damage but the damage appeared to be scattered.
