F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – It is early morning as Bob walks outside to check on his chickens.

A good day for eggs, he thinks, approaching the coop.

While some might assume Bob wears overalls and lives on a poultry farm, an increasing number would wonder if he’s just like them – going greener in the middle of the city.

Tennessee Department of Agriculture says Hold Your Horseradishes, Wait until Frost Threat Passes to Plant Gardens

 

The Tennessee Department of AgricultureNashville, TN – Go ahead and plan your best garden ever. You should even go out to the local farmers market or greenhouse and bring home those gorgeous tomato plants, seedling herbs, peppers and all the rest. Just please don’t plant them, yet.

Mark Twain may have been talking about Tennessee when he said, “If you don’t like the weather here, wait a minute.”

The current weather trend is a perfect example, with balmy mid-70’s days followed by stormy cold fronts with freezing temperatures at night.

Don’t Forget the Squash this year if you plant a Garden

 

Clarksville, TN – Squash is a vegetable you either love or hate—or sometimes both by the end of the growing season. Where else can you plant a few vines and get an ever-flowing bounty of edible vegetables that can be cooked in so many delicious ways?

Two basic types of squash are the “summer” and “winter” varieties. Summer squash include yellow crooked neck and straight neck, zucchini, cocozelle, caserta, patapan or scallop, butter blossom, golden globe, and sun drops. Winter squash are acorn, delicata (also called sweet potato squash), spaghetti, butternut, and “true” winter squash.

Squash are members of the gourd family. Some winter squash are actually listed as “pumpkins” by some seed companies. Winter squash are harvested when the seeds are mature and the rinds hard; most can be stored for a prolonged time. «Read the rest of this article»

 

Dear Adam: An Open Letter to the First Man

 

Kris WolfeDear Adam,

I can’t imagine what it is like to be a guy! What a load of responsibility (Genesis 3.17-19)! But I’m not going to lie, I feel like you could’ve done so much better. There’s a time to be laid-back and there’s a time to take action. That was an action time. You were supposed to co-rule with Eve, not give into sin.

I wish you would have been the voice of reason. Instead, you blamed her for your part in the sin, but that was a part of the curse that began with the sin (Genesis 3.12).
