  • Suicide is one of the saddest words in our language. Those who commit the act don’t only rob the world of their gifts, but also leave behind those who will grapple with a tremendous burden of guilt and grief for years to come.

    A free community awareness and education forum, “Too Tough for Words — How Suicide Affects Us All,” will be at 7 p.m. Thursday, June 12, at the Bardstown United Methodist Church Family Life Center, 116 East Flaget, across the street from the Farmers Market.

  • My Jersey Jett slips arrived in the mail last week just as our warm weather arrived; perfect timing. Sweet potatoes are tropical by nature but can be grown successfully in Kentuckiana as long as we wait until it is warm (nighttime temperatures in the 60s). As long as they have 150 frost free days and some steamy Ohio Valley weather we should be knee deep in sweet potatoes by Thanksgiving.

Flaget (across the street from the Farmers Market).

  • I just got in from walking down the path where we have the majority of our mixed perennial beds and I just had to tell you about it. I can’t remember a prettier spring for my perennial beds. Herbaceous plants in the dappled shade of the woodland garden are lush; and the sunny borders that stretch out from the house are showing waves of color and texture. Favorite plants from previous years are reminding me why I liked them then; and why they should not be forgotten as new varieties are introduced.

  • I can’t tell you how many people have told me that they have planted their tomatoes already ... some nearly a month ago! Too early, too early! When it comes to spring fever the tomato is most abused. Gardeners just can’t wait to get out and dig, which is understandable, but when it comes to tomatoes it is best to be patient.

    Tomatoes love good drainage and heat. If you have struggled with tomatoes in the past consider what makes them most content when preparing the garden and setting out your plants.
