Orchard announcement

When is the best time to plant a tree? The answer is "10 years ago." The second best time to plant a tree however, is today. Trees provide air for us to breathe, shade to help keep us cool, beauty for our eyes to glance upon, and fruit for us to eat. They are just beneficial to be around physically and emotionally. I have fond memories of helping my mom trim our trees, and more than once, seeing just how high I could climb in an old Catalpa tree before I lost my nerve!

Repotting Houseplants

Spring is just around the corner, and many people I know are experiencing cabin fever. Just as many people want to get out and stretch after a long cold winter, your potted plants are also beginning to respond to the longer days by starting to grow.

The Soil Environment – Soil Acidity

When most people think of soils in terms of plant growth, they consider soil moisture, how hard or loose the soil is for plants to grow through and the nutrient status of the soil.

Short and Long-Term Drought Outlook

The latest Drought Monitor Update (February 17) indicates almost the entire state is at least abnormally dry. Most of Barton County falls in this category except for the extreme southern section.
