  • It’s never too late to enroll in 4-H
    Friday, January 15, 2021 4:00 AM
    Did you know that 4-H is the largest youth development program in the nation? It is! The 4-H program consists of a network of around 6 million youth and is led by 540,000 adult volunteers and 3,500 professionals. Started in 1902, 4-H is rich in its history and has more than 60 million alumni of the program. The 4-H program makes such an impact to youth that many of them choose to come back to the program as an adult volunteer so they can also create a positive and welcoming learning environment for the next generation.

  • Advice for ice, winter wheat and freezing rain
    Friday, January 8, 2021 4:00 AM
    Those of you who have river birch trees know that they have a tendency to shed, or as I like to call it, “self-prune.” Twigs drop from my tree throughout the year, but during our recent freezing rain and ice event, it dropped more twigs and branches than ever (which meant a few more minutes’ worth of pick-up-sticks than usual). So it’s worth asking: how does freezing rain form, and what are the effects of a coating of ice on our landscape plants and our crops, like winter wheat?

  • Budget gifts for the HoliDIY

    When the holiday season rolls around, many family budgets become strained. With a long list of family and friends, finding enough money to go around may be challenging. To help reduce the stress of this holiday season, try Doing It Yourself (DIY) instead of purchasing them. Here are some things to consider when doing it yourself. 
    Is it feasible?

  • 4H STEAM Club gets into coding
    Friday, December 4, 2020 4:00 AM
    While COVID-19 has caused us all to pivot our “normal” routines and ways of going about our daily lives, the 4-H program has continued to adapt and achieve our vision “to be the premier, community-based program empowering young people to reach their full potential.” Through a great partnership with Hoover Elementary, the Montgomery County 4-H program was able to offer a hybrid afterschool club, STEAM Club.

  • Keeping houseplants happy in winter
    Friday, November 27, 2020 4:00 AM
    Houseplants are key to my happiness, especially during the doldrums of winter. Having a little greenery in the house (or a lot, in my case – about 40 different plants!) has beneficial effects for the mind. Studies at the University of Michigan and Texas A&M have shown that studying or working around houseplants results in increased concentration and productivity, and can even increase memory retention by 20%! This comes in handy for anyone that can keep plants at their workplace, including those of us working from home this season.

  • Cooking up safe eats for Thanksgiving
    Friday, November 20, 2020 4:00 AM
    Thanksgiving is fast approaching and it’s my favorite holiday of the year. At my family dinner we are never short on homemade chicken noodles (my contribution) mashed potatoes, corn, green bean casserole, homemade bread and of course pumpkin pie. Growing up on a pig farm we always serve a pork loin for Thanksgiving Dinner but as we all know Turkey is traditional. Making large batches of food or transporting food for a large family can come with a risk to those eating. Follow these 5 tips to ensure a safe and enjoyable dinner.

  • We are thankful for our community
    Friday, November 13, 2020 4:00 AM
    November is often a time to be reflective of the past year and be mindful of those things we are thankful for. While 2020 has presented numerous challenges and hardships for everyone, the Montgomery County 4-H program has remained resilient and is thankful for the community support that we continue to have. 
    While unable to have our traditional Spooky Science event, volunteers got creative and provided a drive-thru Spooky Science for families in the community.

    Looking for a fun, family night? Then consider joining us for our annual Spooky Science program. We invite all families in the community to come out and enjoy our 5th annual Spooky Science event on Monday, October 26th from 6-7 p.m. at the Montgomery County 4-H Fairgrounds.

  • Bats on the Move
    Friday, October 16, 2020 4:00 AM
    In August and September the last couple of years, I’ve noticed some mysterious black “gunk” on the ground in front of my garage, suspiciously located beneath the attic vent. The substance looks a little bit like what a mouse leaves behind after a trip through the pantry. But I didn’t think a mouse would be able to get to this spot. After pondering this for a couple of weeks, I realized that the slats are just big enough for a small, furry, winged creature to fit between, and I also realized that said creature probably spends the day sleeping, warm and toasty from the heat of the attic. I realized… we have bats!
