  Gardeners hold program
Special to The Monitor
KAUFMAN–More than 100 people attended an educational program on vegetable gardening Feb. 20 in Kaufman, sponsored by Texas AgriLife Extension Kaufman County Master Gardeners (KCMGA).
Dr. Joe Masabni, Texas AgriLife Extension vegetable specialist, spoke on the 10 requirements for a successful vegetable garden.
He emphasized that the first four steps include planning the garden, selecting plants and selecting and preparing the garden site.
Masabni emphasized the need for soil sampling to determine nutrient needs.
Steps five through seven are actual work in the garden during the growing season, while steps eight through 10 are evaluating your successes, clean up and preparing the garden for the next season.
Masabni also covered guidelines for proper fertilization and techniques for controlling pests.
Soil sample bags and instructions for collecting garden soil samples were given to attendees.
KCMGA also held a plant sale featuring tulips, iris and seeds of vegetable varieties recommended by Masabni for best success in the Kaufman County area.
Soil sample bags with instructions are available at no cost to anyone at the Texas AgriLife office in Kaufman.
For more information, or to schedule a master gardener to speak for your group or event, please call the Texas AgriLife Extension office at (972) 932-9069.

 

Rootseekers hear Napper speak
Special to The Monitor
MABANK–The speaker at the monthly meeting of the Rootseekers Club was Lana Napper.
She spoke of her research on her Grimes family.
She got the research bug in 2000, when she and her husband Jim took a trip through the original 13 colony states.
She had heard that she had a Revolutionary War patriot ancestor and decided to find out if it was true.
Napper has a deep appreciation for her ancestors, and is so thankful for all the sacrifices they made for this country.
She explained some things were easy to find, but others were not. She explained how she had to approach some tasks at a different angle when she ran into those proverbial brick walls.
She has scrapbooks she takes to her family reunions in Indiana. She keeps all the documents that she has collected for that ancestor in her scrapbook, so she can show other members of her family.
Napper finally did track down that Revolutionary War ancestor, and now is a proud member of the Sarah Maples Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
Rootseekers meet at 7 p.m. each third Monday at the Tri-County Library in Mabank.

 


Come Adopt Us At
The Humane Society of Cedar Creek Lake
The domino effect is a chain reaction that occurs when a small change causes a similar change nearby, which then will cause another similar change, and so on. My name is Domino, and I got my name not only because I’m black and white like a domino tile, but also because my outgoing, cheerful personality causes my doggie roommates to smile. This also causes our human friends to smile, which even causes the kitties in the cat room to smile.
I am an 8-month-old male Pointer/Terrier mix. I love children, other dogs, and even get along great with kitties. I’ve had all my shots and am ready to be adopted. If you’d like to experience the domino effect, I am sure to put a forever smile on your face when you take me to my forever home.
I currently live with a foster family, so if you would like to meet me, call my friends at the Humane Society of Cedar Creek Lake at (903) 432-3422 to make an appointment. You can also email them at dogshsccl@yahoo.com.
