This roller coaster weather we have had lately gives us a taste of warmer temps and makes us anxious for the 2015 Walk Kansas campaign. I returned home from our agent update in Manhattan with sample tee shirts for this years' health challenge. Color choices for 2015 include coral or gray with a slightly different logo than previous years, including the words "Walk Tall" and "Walk Strong."

Planting fruit trees

If you're pondering buying a fruit tree, here are some comments from the K-State Research and Extension's Horticulture department on ones that are commonly grown in Kansas.
