The Clermont County Soil and Water Conservation District is offering a variety of native seedlings and ground covers as part of the 2011 Clermont Conservation Plant Sale, including sugar maples, river birch, spicebush, and eastern white pine trees. “Non-native plants require more maintenance and resources to thrive,” said Susie Steffensen with the conservation district. “Once they are established, native plants require little or no maintenance, fertilizer or extra water. These are all things that can save you time and money.” Orders for the seedlings and groundcovers will be taken through Friday, April 8. Orders also are available for bird feeders, compost bins and rain barrels. The order form can be downloaded at or call 7327075. Some supplies are limited. “Gardens made up of non-native plants are contributing to a decline in habitat and natural resources needed for our insects, birds and other wildlife,” said Steffensen. “A large number of insects rely exclusively on native plants for food and habitat.

When we were at the G r a n t s Greenhouse and Farm, they have so many items folks to George for buy – tomaRooks to plants, Ole c a b b a g e , Fisherman bb rr ouc sc os lei ,l sprouts, onion sets, white, red and yellow; seed taters, snow peas, and much more. Different kinds of fruit trees, strawberry plants, all kinds of flowers, so mark your calendar for their open house April 16 and April 17. As a reminder, the U.S. Grant Vocational School will be having their community appreciation dinner April 16 from 5 p.m. till 7 p.m. You don’t want to miss this fantastic meal. The Forcee brothers, students and facility do a super job. This is a wonderful school and a great asset to the community. It is a great place for students to get their training for their life’s work. On April 16 from 7:30 a.m. till 10:30 a.m. is the last Bethel Lions Club Pancake breakfast for this season. So come out and have breakfast, go to Grants Farm to get your plants and seeds and then go to the vocational school for supper. Wow, what a day! The Monroe Grange will have an open house on Saturday, April 2, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Grange Hall in Nicholsville. At 7 p.m. will be the monthly card party, so come and learn about the Grange and what a great community organization it is. Now Ruth Ann will put a receipt for Orange Marmalade. She made some a couple of weeks ago and it is sure good. You can’t beat homemade food. Orange Marmalade: I purchased Kroger Can-Jel fruit pectin, so the recipe is in the instructions, but here it is. 4 oranges and 2 lemons, remove the rinds in quarters, shave off and discard most of the white pith. Slice remaining rind finely with scissors or sharp knife. Add 2-1/2 cups water and 1/8 teaspoon baking soda. Simmer covered for 20 minutes, stir occasionally. Chop fruit finely, (we didn’t do this, we just made the juice) add to rind and simmer another 10 minutes. Using 4 cups of orange juice add the pectin, bring to a rolling boil. Add 6-1/2 cups sugar, the fruit mixture. Bring to rolling boil again and boil two minutes. Ladle into jars mixing the fruit peels throughout the jar and seal. Start your week by going to the church of your choice and praise the Good Lord. God bless all. More later. George Rooks is a retired park ranger. Rooks served for 28 years with the last five as manager of East Fork State Park.

Howdy folks, One morning last week for breakfast we had grapefruit, hot biscuits, homemade butter and orange marmalade. The marmalade Ruth Ann made. When we got up, Ruth Ann said how does this sound for breakfast. Well, I said I think I will stay and eat. How good! See the recipe later in this column. Last Saturday the Grange at Mowrystown had their card party with a good crowd. It was a wonderful evening seeing folks we don’t see often. Last Friday the Grange at Nicholsville was good with plans made for the Grassy Run event April 29, April 30 and May 1. This is always a good time. The Monroe Grange serves food and beverages at this event. This is hard work, but enjoyable. We get to see folks from different states and get some history of early times. The other day as Ruth Ann and I were coming home from Bethel, we decided to stop and see our great granddaughter who was visiting with her grandparents Debbie and Bob. She has sure done some growing. The last time we had seen her, her mom, Jennifer and dad, Jason had taken her for her checkup. She wasn’t very happy. The doctor had given her a couple shots. I remember when our first baby got her shots. Boy, I was bent out of shape. I know these little ones have to have these shots, but I didn’t like for my baby to have the needles put in their little bodies. Have you seen the big flocks of wild turkey? A couple weeks ago on the way to Batavia, we saw a flock of wild turkeys that was probably over 50 birds. On the way up to the White Oak Grange last Saturday, we saw in two different places, folks were taking pictures of the wild turkeys. One was at De La Palma, there was a big flock. The other place was on Ohio 32 in a bean field close to the new hospital west of Mt. Orab. The turkey population is sure getting big along with the deer population. Last Monday Ruth Ann and I cleaned two big tractor tires and planted spinach in them. We built two more raised beds, one for carrots and one for green onions. We got onion sets at the Grant green house and planted the new bed. We have another small bed planted in onions. They are starting to grow. We got blueberry plants to start raising blueberries. Ruth Ann makes pies using blueberries and we like to eat the berries. They need an acidy soil. When we plant these beds of spinach, we cover them with a plastic fence to keep the cats from using them for a bathroom. I know they need some place to go but not in our garden!
