Side dressing plants

Hotard, Steven.jpg

It’s hard to believe that we are already approaching the end of April. Seems like yesterday, vegetable gardeners were anxiously waiting for the magic moment to plant the popular warm season vegetable garden. Now after several weeks of being transplanted or seeded, established plants will require some type of supplemental fertilization.

Prep teams hot on diamond

No telling how excited Ray Holley would’ve been had he been selected in the seven rounds of the recent National Football League draft.
He would’ve likely set up a celebration party on the streets of his hometown of Orange, Calif.
As it is, though, he’ll gladly accept a free agent route into the professional ranks.
