Jeffco 4-H is gearing up to kick-off their latest initiative, Mindfulness Mondays! In partnership with the Denver 4-H office, weekly videos will be shared via social media to highlight different ways to connect and get grounded. Join us every Monday to learn new ways to be mindful via yoga, cooking, being outside, or through art. Be on the look out for our first video Monday, April 5. Each Monday a video will be posted at some point during the day so that you can complete it during your own time!
2018 was the last big year for Fire Blight here along the Front Range. This disease infects select plants in the Rose family, especially Apple, Pear and Hawthorn trees. Incidence varies year to year, and severity differs by cultivar susceptibility, tree age, succulence of tissues, and spring meteorological conditions. Warm, rainy springs are particularly conducive to rapid spread of the bacterial pathogen. It is best to prevent spread by pruning out infected plant tissue, or by having a professional apply specific chemical treatments to blossoms.
Colorado Small Acreage Management (SAM) is a cooperative program between CSU Extension and USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service with the goal to help improve land stewardship by helping landowners understand and manage their property resources. Extension agents can help with anything from your backyard chicken flock to pasture management or how to take a soil sample. For more information visit our website at or contact Kat Caswell, a SAM Extension Agent serving our region.
