Parental memories — the good, the bad and the ugly

"It goes so fast," the lady said to me, smiling with squinted eyes. She was every bit in her 70s, and she glanced at the boys as they grabbed at the candy near the checkout line. That was 19 years ago. Four kids under 6, I nodded back and couldn't imagine a time when they would be adults. Later, others repeated those words to me. "Before you know it, they are in college!" And then that day arrived for our oldest, six years ago.

Preserve the land

Forty three years ago, when folks in the USA celebrated the first Earth Day, I was stationed in Stuttgart, West Germany – the country was still divided then. Back then I had little opportunity to carry signs that championed the abstract idea of protecting something as vast as our planet. Heck, I didn't even hear about Earth Day until I returned a couple years later.

Weather, What’s Normal, and Spring Planting

No one can argue our weather has been boring in 2013. Many find these spring reminders of winter unusual to say the least. The area and most of Kansas has experienced two hard freezes combined with freezing precipitation over the last two weeks. This stands in sharp contrast with the winter/spring seasons common during much of the 2000s. The K-State weather station at the US 281 and US 50 junction reported a high temperature of 4l° F and a low of 34° on Thursday April 18. Friday, April 19, had a low in the mid-20s.

Specialist has wealth of knowledge

This week, I have been in Manhattan for New Agent Training and it was wonderful to meet and to learn from the experts in their various fields. One person I had the pleasure to meet was Ward Upton. He is a specialist for the Horticulture Department with a wealth of knowledge about his subject. This week, I thought that I would share a couple of his pieces from the most recent Horticulture newsletter. I hope you find them as informative as I did.
