Lots of mowing, raking and baling in Baldwin

BALDWIN —

Hello from Baldwin,

How is everyone’s week going? I hope everyone is having a great one.

I know one thing, it sure has been hot this week, but the weather forecast says much cooler weather is one the way for this weekend.

What’s new in your neck of the woods this week?

It’s been a busy one here in Baldwin, some of the farmers are mowing hay, raking and rolling and baling. Make hay while the sun shines.

Although we haven’t had a lot of rain lately. The yards are still growing fast. The mowers and weed eaters have been buzzing again this week.

I was coming home from my sister’s on Monday, and a big deer jumped over the fence out of Brenda Bogie’s farm, hit the black top and jumped the fence into the farm where I live.

It was moving so fast, I couldn’t see it anymore. If I had been driving a little faster, I think it may have landed on the hood of my car.

Happy birthday wishes go out next week to Johnny Middleton and Chase Winkler, Sunday; Kendall Hamilton, Monday; Joyce Middleton and Meresade Combs, Wednesday; Gail Sanders and Wilma Hall, Thursday; Don Dargavell and Kevin Jones, Saturday.

I hope you all have very happy birthdays and many more happy ones to come.

Happy anniversary wishes go out next week to Brian and Elizabeth Jones, Sunday; and Rodney and Amy Dixon, Tuesday.

I hope that both of these couples have very happy anniversaries and many more happy ones to come.

If you don’t have a home church that you attend and you are looking for a church, I would like to invite you to attend Bethel Christian Church here in the Baldwin community. Sunday school starts at 10 a.m. and worship starts at 11 a.m. Michael Damron, minister of the church along with the congregation, would love to have you worship with them.

The Madison County Farmers market is back on EKU Campus on Thursdays from10 a.m to 1 p.m. Be sure and drop by and see them. They will set up in front of the Keen Johnson Building on University Drive.

Don’t forget that the farmers market is open on Tuesdays and Saturdays in the Lowe’s Parking Lot, 8 a.m. to noon. Corn, beans, tomatoes, sour dough, sweet breads, jams, jellies, honey and lots more produce is still available at the market.

We also have birdhouses, bird feeders, bowls, cutting boards and other handcrafted items by Steve Murphy, homemade soaps and lotions. Beef and pork also are available. We hope to see you there!

Well, I guess that is all for now. Uf you hear any news, just give me a call at 623-4579 or e-mail me at pljones61@netzero.com

  • Amanda-Sears-c.jpg Cicada-killer wasps are here

    The extension office has received numerous phone calls over the past couple of weeks about large wasps hovering in yards all over the county.
    This insect is called the cicada killer, and despite its aggressive name, it is not something to be scared of.

    Maintaining a controlled breeding and calving season can be one of the most important management tools for cow-calf producers.
    Uniform, heavier and more valuable calves are key reasons to keep the breeding season short.

    I often flash back to the days from the mid to late 1930s when I was a paper boy.
    There were 10 or 12 of us who rolled out of bed at 5 a.m. every day, jumped on our bicycles and headed downtown to the Glyndon Hotel and picked up our papers for delivery.

    The following were included in last year’s exams and were answered by 16-year-old high school students. The answers are genuine, and we must remember that these youngsters will grow up to vote, marry and become parents. It’s a scary thought.
