  • Control late blight on your tomatoes

    A couple of weeks ago we got word that late blight had been found in Kentucky on tomatoes in Northern Kentucky. Last week it showed up in Washington and surrounding counties.  It is unusual for this disease to show up so early in Kentucky.  We generally don’t have a problem with late blight until September or October, which isn’t much of a problem, however last year and now this year it has reared its ugly head early because of transplants sent to Kentucky from northern areas and in this year’s case, Michigan.

  • Sign up for 4-H camp; results announced

    When many people think back to summers growing up, a traditional memory is often of attending summer camp.  Many in Washington County will remember Bingham 4-H Camp that was located at the old Tathum Springs Hotel that burned down several years.  This was the first 4-H Camp owned by Kentucky 4-H.  Now, Kentucky 4-H has four camps and Washington County 4-H members camp at Lake Cumberland 4-H Camp that replaced Bingham 4-H Camp.
