And I’ve decided that something close to humor must be going on in their heads. Brandy was our daughter’s first riding horse many years ago. Brandy would stand perfectly still to be saddled but after the ...
Many farmers in Ashtabula County have started making first cutting hay. Recent rains slowed the progress somewhat, but several farmers around us have mowed and baled. The hay being made at this time of year is especially important because it is very high in nutrients. That means it is excellent feed for cows, horses or any other livestock that consume it. High quality hay is also very important ...

When my Mom was growing up in the 1930s, she lived on a small farm here in Ash...

Do you think it’s possible that spring will actually arrive this year? Did it get frozen along with all of us during our record setting cold February? Spring 2015 is probably the most anticipated spring ever--- not only here in northeastern Ohio but all across our country. From the poor people around Boston with their 100 plus inches of snow and collapsing roofs to the citizens of our southern ...
There’s a terrible disease going around right now. No, it’s not the cough, colds or flu that everyone seems to have. No, it’s worse---it’s cabin fever!
