  • Ga Clipping.JPG ‘Low maintenance’ doesn’t mean ‘no maintenance’

    Another holiday has come and gone as the month of July counts its days and we once again focus our attention on the home landscape. Curb appeal and maintenance requirements play an important role as choices are made and plants are installed into our landscapes according to plans. Any failure in responsibility towards understanding and satisfying maintenance requirements will definitely result in the potential loss of the new plants.

  • Kichler, Jeremy.jpg Nematodes in my garden!

    I often get questions about controlling nematodes in the home vegetable garden. Since there are no home gardener chemicals we can get economically for nematode control then the answers get few.

  • Kichler, Jeremy.jpg Fire ants in my garden

    Questions about fire ants in the garden are common around the Extension office. Fire ants can be a nuisance and they can damage some vegetable crops such as okra and Irish potatoes. Fewer fire ant mounds would result from tilling your garden but a few mounds may persist in heavy mulch or close to vegetable plants. In these cases fire ant baits or mound treatments may be in order.

    There’s much more to enjoy in your home landscape beyond the basic plants and flowers. There’s awesome music and movies galore simply provided by nature through wildlife for you. Add colors, movements, and sounds that make your home landscape appear more alive and vibrant in your quest to welcome birds and butterflies into your space.

Should the U.S. negotiate with groups it considers terrorists?

No. Never.
Generally no, but prisoner exchanges are an exception.
Negotiation will be required to end the conflicts we have with those groups.
