Even though the area experienced a dose of winter last weekend, spring is just around the corner. Wheat in the area benefitted from the recent moisture and the forecast is predicting chances for precipitation over the next few days. As the days lengthen and the temperature warms more than wheat will become active. If temperatures stay mild, army cutworm, true armyworm, greenbugs, and the Bird Cherry-Oat Aphid will likely be making appearances. All but the aphid mentioned may or may not rise to levels significant enough to warrant treatment. If producers are fortunate, they won't appear or if they ...

February. The time of the year when we romantically pour out our undying love and affection towards our significant other with flowers, chocolates, and other gifts on Valentine's Day. Ironically, February seems like a complete contradiction to romanticism, sporting a barren landscape, dead flowers, leafless trees, and a temperature that is usually cold as the dickens. In fact, most animals have even bailed ship in hopes of finding a warmer locale or have buried themselves underground to ride out the rest of winter. Somehow though, Valentine's Day does seem to inspire romance, no matter how you approach it.

Pretend you are a Pied-billed Grebe with a gourmet meal of Leopard Frog. Your buddies are sitting by watching with envy as you claim your prize and start to swallow a very rare meal in winter with mostly frozen water in the Bottoms. There is one small problem-- it is a BIG frog. I watched the Grebe make multiple attempts to swallow the frog which was too large for his throat. He was acrobatic and agile in using gravity and every possible angle to ingest the frog-- all to no avail. When he got the frog exactly over his head ...
Hostesses often worry about what to feed guests with special dietary needs at holiday time. This is especially true for a guest with a strong allergy against wheat, for example, or someone with insulin-dependent diabetes. Providing several simple whole food choices and staying away from so many highly processed foods is the best plan I can offer.
From the phone calls that I have received over the last year, I have found that volunteer trees can be a nuisance around homes, yards and fields. This week I thought that I would share an article by Ward Upham I found about nuisance trees and ways to remove them from your landscape. This is a chore that may be done as long as the temperatures are above freezing, so it can be accomplished on a nice winter day if you want an excuse to be outside.
