  • Banner community news

    Barb Cross|May 1, 2014

    Good morning here in Banner County and to our neighbors near and far. This past weekend proved to us once again that it is possible to have several different seasons within a 24-hour period. Sometimes less. Friday was beautiful, almost 80. Saturday, cooler wind … Sunday rain, snow, no electricity for almost 3 hours...and getting pretty chilly! Ayden went to do her chores Sunday early afternoon and made an interesting discovery. She has a pen for her older ducks, which currently house Jeffery (...

    Another blanket of snow covered our neighborhood. If you were thinking, you would have sprinkled weed and feed on the green grass. The hum of lawn mowers filled the air Friday night and Saturday before the storm. What a nice sound reminding us summer is on its way. Speaking of trimming the grass, remember to not put your grass clippings in the dumpsters. The burn area down by the arena is open and you are able to dump them there. Better yet, plant a garden or a flower bed and use the cut grass...

  • No Till notes: 'fertilizer placement'

    Mark Watson|May 1, 2014

    Spring has finally taken hold here in western Nebraska and moved old man winter into a distant memory. From early last October when we received our first snow until mid-April it seemed like a longer winter than most. The warmer temperatures also have brought with them the usual rush to get crops planted and the farming season is in full swing. I had my first report of field peas up and growing on the 17th of April. These early peas emerging were surprising given the cold temperatures of the soil...
