Russell County Jaycees Fair
Russell County Fair 4-H Floral Hall categories are attached to this newsletter. Entries will be taken on June 6, 2023 at the Russell Co. Fairgrounds from 8:00 am – noon. This is your chance to show off your skills to the county and have a chance for your entries to advance to the Kentucky State Fair. Exhibits that advance to the Kentucky State Fair will be displayed in “Cloverville” in the south wing.
Grow Your Own Garlic Greens
1 garlic bulb (ideally one with green sprouts)
1 clear, shallow jar or cup or a small bowl
Put the garlic bulb in the clear jar so that you can see when the water needs changing or refilling. Arrange it so that the points of the cloves and green sprouts (if there are any) are facing up. Add just enough water to cover the bottom of the garlic and put the container in a sunny spot. Change the water if it gets cloudy, and add water to keep the bottom of the bulb wet. Use scissors to harvest the shoots after they get about 3 inches long. The bottoms of the garlic will eventually send down roots and green shoots should grow well for a couple of months.
