The green color of renewed turf growth is returning just as many lawnmowers are taking their final victory laps around the lawn for the 2016 season. But before the gardener settles down for that long winter's nap if they are concerned about a beautiful lawn, now is the time for a couple of late season chores to improve success in 2016.
I am excited to be able to extend this invitation to be a part of what we feel will be a very successful 2016 Indiana Small Farm Conference as an exhibitor in the conference trade show.
The trade show is an important facet of the overall conference. It is an opportunity for participants to learn about the latest goods and services that are available to enhance the success of and their satisfaction with their farm operation.
There are so many activities coming up for Extension Homemakers this next month from the Holiday Bazaar, Chicago Trip, Christmas Dinner, and more. Find out what's happening in this month's newsletter.
