The Christmas spirit is not what you drink

Some people forget about the true meaning of Christmas – celebrating the birth of Christ, love, friendship and spending time with the family. As a youngster, I have fond memories of Mom inside fixing turkey and dressing while my siblings and I would be playing outside throwing snowballs, playing "fox and geese" and just being kids.

Christmas Cactus

Merry Christmas Everyone! At this time of year, we bring plants into our house to help decorate for the season. Many of these, such as trees and poinsettias are removed and discarded at the end of the season, but Christmas Cactus are plants that you can enjoy all year long! I found a short article on them to share with you this week that goes over care if you have one already, or what to do if you are looking at getting a Cactus. I hope you enjoy this and I hope each and every one of you has a ...

Master Gardner program

The Extension Master Gardener program through K-State Research and Extension is a valuable volunteer program that trades classroom hours of study with the experts in horticulture. In return, the Master gardeners give back to their communities with the knowledge they received. A long time Master Gardener for Barton County is Ron Cunningham of Ellinwood. I asked him to write a column for me to share this week. For more information about the Master Gardener program, call the Extension office at 620-793-1910. New classes are forming now, so call if you would like to be able to get involved!

Poinsettias

Much like strings of lights dotting neighborhoods at night, poinsettias color the daylight hours of the holiday season. Keeping poinsettias looking their best through the season, however, offers some unique challenges. Knowing a little more about this symbol of the season can ensure its beauty lasts well after the gifts have been opened.
