Grasses and broadleaves

Before returning to our discussion regarding grasses and broadleaves, a drought update. The Drought Monitor Report, updated as of Tuesday, May 29th, shows easing of drought conditions. In the NW and SE corners of Kansas, the drought is gone and there is easing throughout much of the rest of the state. The rains of the last several days should reflect further easing next week; however, the well above normal temperatures towards the end of this past week will somewhat erase some of the benefits. At least much of the state now has the needed moisture to finish the wheat crop ...

Where we live

Reflection is a good thing. It allows you to see where you've been and hopefully chart a better course on where you're going. While on vacation recently I had a chance to think about the small community where I grew up.

Kabatine tip blight

I have received many calls recently from individuals worried about their juniper trees. The trees appear to be turning brown at the tips of the branches, sometimes throughout the tree. This gives the tree an unhealthy look, and people are concerned about the overall health of their evergreens. The trees that I have looked at have all had the same disease in common, which is Kabatina tip blight.

Nutrition tips for your busy summer

Another school year has come to an end but that does not mean that learning has to take a vacation, especially in the area of nutrition education. With kids home for the summer, no doubt your grocery bill will see a noticeable increase. It would be easy to fall into the trap of stocking up on the many processed foods on the market and feeding these to your busy family. But summer is a great time to focus on the "Why, When, Where, and How" as it relates to nutrition education.
