How fast rumors go

Carrie called the other day and I grabbed the phone just as I was coming in from the garage. I dropped my purse at the foot of the stairs and sat down on a step to talk. No conversation with Carrie is ever short. Even her voicemails run three to four minutes.

Fire ant control in the garden

Warm, sunny spring days are now upon us, which means that many gardeners finally have the chance to get outside and prepare their vegetable plots. Now is a good time to turn the soil and prepare it for vegetable seeds or transplants. However, many gardeners are often troubled to find one or more fire ant mounds have popped up in their vegetable plots since last season.

Getting your child out of a shy cycle

Q: Our 7-year-old is very shy. He doesn't enjoy the sort of social activities, including sports, that other kids his age are generally involved in and would rather play alone. He has one friend who is also quite shy. His mother and I have conspired to arrange weekly play dates, but whereas the boys get along fine, both kids sometimes balk at cooperating with them.

A lesson from vacation Bible school

Coming home one Sunday from the family dinner after church, I said, out of the blue, "I feel like we should volunteer for vacation Bible school."

Renovating an old pecan orchard

One question that I receive often is, "Can an old, abandoned pecan orchard be brought back into production?" The answer is yes. However, like everything else, it will require some work and some money.

The imaginary problems of parents

Today's parents tend to worry about all manner of things that deserve not even second thoughts. Imaginary friends, for example. I've been asked many times by mothers if they should worry that their preschoolers have imaginary friends they seem to think and in some cases even insist are real.

The wealth of being poor

My people, as I have long said, were raised up on hard times in the Appalachian foothills. I don't know that I had a grandparent who ever saw the sum of $500 at one time or even held a hundred dollar bill in hand.

Now’s a good time to start fighting moles

I have received several calls this past week on how to control moles in the yard, and have even seen tunneling in my backyard which is indicative of these pests. As our soil temperature begins to rise, mole activity will rise as well because of the increase in insect activity.

Stopping a molehill in its tracks

Q: About six months ago, our 4-year old daughter began complaining of being afraid to be alone at bedtime. Upon questioning, she told us she was afraid of monsters in her closet and under her bed. We were unable to convince her otherwise. In fact, the more we talked to her, the more her fears grew to the point where she was becoming nearly hysterical at bedtime.

When time melts away

It was over Sunday dinner that my sister told me what I did not know. A childhood friend, the red-headed, freckle-faced girl with laughing eyes and the brightest sense of humor possible, was sitting vigil with her husband as death crept close.

Control summer weeds now

Your battle with summer weeds should start now, if this is the year you plan to beat your over-achieving neighbor for the best-looking lawn. Applying a pre-emergent herbicide now will provide a better control of weeds this summer than a post-emergent herbicide.

For at least 20 years, maybe 25, Mama planned her home-going to heaven. Not a week - and sometimes not a day - went by when she did not use her impending date with mortality in some way.

A word from UGA Extension

In south Georgia, we are never more than a few days from a drought. Although we had plenty of rain in April, it can become very dry, very quickly. A pest that causes problems in turfgrass and seems to enjoy the drought like conditions is the chinch bug.

A word from UGA Extension

The dogwood is a very recognizable tree in south Georgia and is adaptive to many different soil types. It likes well-drained soils high in organic matter. You do not see dogwoods growing in poorly-drained soils in woods environments. They need good soil drainage and protection from drought.

I could be wrong

I have a personal philosophy about funerals and it is this: If at all possible, always attend a funeral for someone you knew. My faith tells me that. Now this may not be what all Christians see in their faith, but I see it.

Living with children

Q: My husband and I need your advice. We are parents to one adult daughter who has three children ages 10, 7, and 4. They live about three hours away and up until two years ago we saw them fairly often. Our visits were often very uncomfortable, however, because she and her husband do not discipline the children. As a consequence, they are rude, sassy, and disrespectful. They have no respect whatsoever for adult

A word from UGA Extension

Our knockout roses in the front lawn of our office have become damaged since blooming this spring. We have noticed several "brown spots" on them, and our first thought was "I thought this plant was indestructible!" While these roses are known for holding up to insect and disease pressure, they, like every plant, are still susceptible to damage.

I could be wrong

It was just over 100 years ago (May 9, 1914) that Woodrow Wilson proclaimed the second Sunday in May as Mother's Day. According to Wilson's proclamation, this day is to serve "as a public expression of love and reverence for the mothers of our country."

Living with children

A major U.S. newspaper recently ran a piece detailing all the ways children benefit from doing chores. Well, not all the ways. They failed to mention the most important benefit: chores, properly managed, teach citizenship values.

A word from UGA Extension

After the storm this past weekend, many landscapes were filled with broken limbs, leaves and endless pine cones. In areas that were hit worse with high speed winds, established trees were uprooted. This caused many residents to lose power and some had structural damage to buildings.

Living with children

A list of some of the more memorable elements of pre-1960s parenting is in constant circulation on the Internet and is especially popular with people my age who can for obvious reasons relate. The items include that we drank from garden hoses and survived, didn't wear bike helmets and survived, could only take a test once and never had to see psychologists for test anxiety, and so on.

Living with children

Q: Our son is going to be 13 next year and we're trying to be proactive about the coming storm. He's been a good kid and relatively easy to raise to this point, but we've heard the horror stories and dread what may be around the corner. Do you have any tips?
