Peachy keen: Make the most of summer fruit #recipes
By Deirdre Parker Smith deirdre.smith@salisburypost.com SALISBURY — Perhaps you’ve noticed a lack of peaches at Farmer’s Markets and roadside stands this year. Blame that late April freeze.

By Morgan Watts Rowan Cooperative Extension SALISBURY — I’m sure everyone has noticed at this point that summer is here in full swing.

Garden Busters - The potato box
Being a horticulture agent, I am constantly asked questions about gardening, what does the best, what gardening hacks do I know and what is wrong with a plant. In recent years, social media has become very popular. With that I see numerous videos such as how-to methods and cheap options to grow a weed-free, organic, …
