    Don’t let summer stressors ruin your landscape’s good looks. Instead give your plants’ natural defenses a boost and keep both vegetable gardens producing and flowers blooming.
    Busy summer schedules can lead to plant neglect and less-than-picture-perfect gardens. When you team this with summer heat and drought that can lead to wilting, brown leaves and poor growth, and add insects and diseases that can further weaken and damage plants, gardens can really suffer.

  • Corey Rogers has a sense about horses, about what makes them tick and what it takes to mold them like a lump of clay into a thing of beauty and trust.
    "I just like it, "Rogers said from a barn at Chiefland's White Farms Friday where he works as a trainer. "This is about the only thing I've found I'm good at."
    Rogers, a Chiefland native, likes it so much he moved away to Nevada to train horses after graduating high school in 2007. In June, Rogers came home with intentions to stay, but he wasn't alone.
