How are your squash doing?

Get It Growing

By Heather Ballard

Are your squash, cucumbers or watermelon plants not producing fruit this summer? Extension agents across the state have been getting calls recently from home vegetable gardeners concerned that their plants are not making fruit.

It’s a good idea to have a little background information on cucurbit crops in order to understand why these things happen in our gardens. Cucurbits are those plants from the family Cucurbitaceae. They include such crops as cantaloupes, cucumbers, gourds, pumpkins, squashes, watermelons and zucchini.

Here’s to the Fathers!!

Here’s to the fathers who’s big money dreams Die in the corner while their baby screams; But without anger, dread or regrets, they comfort the child and hold him close to their chest. And as the child grows they grow with them too, learning a depth that they never knew; And soon they are older, their hair slightly gone, chasing two children around the front lawn.

Or car pooling teams to little league games, and buying them hamburgers after it rains; They mend broken dolls and fix broken wheels, they cringe when their daughter tries her first pair of heels. They reach in their pockets but never keep count, they pay dearly for parenthood, awful amounts; They postpone their plans to sail across the seas, instead they sing Barney and bandage skinned knees.

“Stand Alone When Making a Choice”

Article Image Alt Text

This year’s message during the Youth Crime Prevention Program (YCAP) surrounded peer pressure and making choices. Since 2013, the La-Salle Parish Sheriff’s Office and the LaSalle Correctional Center have hosted YCAP and invited eighth grade students to tour the prison and hear testimonies from inmates.

Sheriff Scott Franklin’s vision is to bring eighth graders in every year and allow them to see what life would be like in prison. He chose eighth grade because they already experience peer pressure in junior high. They are heading into high school years where peer pressure will ramp up and go to a higher level due to the availability of vehicles and transportation to go to and from different events.

At YCAP, the students listen to inmates give testimonies of their bad decisions, what led them down that road and what life is like in prison.
