Time to do some work in the garden

PAINT LICK — Good morning readers, it’s another beautiful Tuesday, this last day of April. Hopefully, the sunshine will stay with us long enough to work up our gardens.

Doug and I are usually late in getting things out anyway, but I’ve always heard we should wait until after Mother’s Day to set any above ground crops.

The weekend should be somewhat cooler and it should make for a great day at the Kentucky Derby on Saturday.

My sister-in-law and I visited the Community Farmer’s Market on Halcomb’s Knob last Friday and, of course, we bought some tomato plants from Glenda McQuerry and some fresh raisin bread from Deborah Messenger.

The market will be open every Friday from 4 to 6 p.m. until late summer. You can call Deborah at 925-9936.

Deborah and Glenda have an abundance of other vegetables and breads made to order at their home, but it was good to get out and see the beautiful countryside on Old Wallacetown Road.

The trees are just blooming everywhere ... even the locust are sprouting leaves, so the wintry, three to four days will soon be here. Then, we’ll have “blackberry winter” not far behind.

I had a good Sunday dinner with family of brothers and sisters on Sunday at sister Linda Moberly’s home in Richmond. She is a great cook and we all enjoyed the day

Then, on Monday, Deborah and I took the long way around coming home from meeting brother Johnny and wife Eva and daughter Melanie at Ryan’s Restaurant. We spied several large peafowl on the Bundy Farm and they were having themselves a time with the most gorgeous display of their feathers.  It was a good day for both of us and everyone needs some time off.

I do love traveling back to the places of my younger years and it brings back some really amazing memories.   Thank you, Deborah.

This coming Saturday evening is Fairview Fish Fry time and everyone is welcome.

Fairview Christian Church is located on Richmond Road, just across from Paint Lick Elementary School.

The fish fry is scheduled from 5 to 7 p.m, so don’t be late for a great meal.    

The Paint Lick Book Club will meet on Tuesday, May 7, at The Friends of Paint Lick, beginning at 7 p.m. If you read and would enjoy discussing a book with others, be with us next Tuesday evening.

Wildcat Transmission is really busy with all the work going on at the garage and it looks good to see happenings in Paint Lick. They will be happy to check on your vehicle and get it in good working order. They do all kinds of work at the garage.

Happy birthday to Michael Griffith on May 6.

May God bless.
