“I’m just getting started,” Livingston said. “The beets and radishes are early season plants and we’ve eaten all of those. But we’re just getting started on harvesting the other stuff. I’ve put up seven gallon-size bags of sliced yellow squash, two gallon-size bags of yellow squash and zucchini mixed together, and three quarts of sliced zucchini. That’s not to mention the probably 50 pounds or more of what we’ve cooked that we’ve given away.”

NATCHITOCHES — Jay Dardenne had a good reason to feel like “the little kid in the candy store” on Friday night.
The dream that the Louisiana Lt. Governor and the state’s passionate sports fans have had for so long opened for business: the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame Museum, covering an estimated 28,000 square feet along Front Street in historic downtown Natchitoches.
