Clean, Separate, Cook and Chill!

The FightBac.org websites states to Clean, Separate, Cook and Chill our foods.  These four words are packed with meaning when preparing foods for your family and friends.  Food safety is a topic we hear a lot about. But until we know someone who becomes ill we really don’t think it will happen to us.  For the full article by Holly Jay, click here.

Soil Testing Services

It's that time of year to get in your soil samples for testing.  Basic soil testing analyzes nutrient content and fertility status. Results include fertilizer and lime recommendations. Additional tests are available for nutrient management plans, environmental issues, potting mixes, compost, manure and water usage. Each sample should contain about 1½ cups of dry soil from 6 to 7 inches deep. Consult our soil testing publications for specific instructions. Results are typically provided within two to three weeks.

There is a $15 per sample fee for testing soil. Results are normally returned within two weeks. Soil samples should be dry. Wet samples will delay results.
