Woodhull: Extension news, recipes

Greensburg — The primary election is history for now. Now, it's time for all the candidates to pick up their signs. Even if they won, it's too early to have them out for this fall. Have you noticed how much less your phone is ringing now? Also, the mailbox is almost empty after the mailman has made his delivery. I wish there were some other way to get the candidates beside having all the hoopla connected with the primary. I don't like all the mud slinging. I'm sure there is something that each one would like to keep hidden, but be sure if there is, someone will dig it all out and put it out there with a little embellishment of the truth.

If you are planning to enter exhibits at this year's fair, please note that the dates are all changed from past years. Don't think that things go in at their usual time, as they don't. We don't want anyone to be disappointed when they take theirs in and it is too late for them. All the flowers are blooming earlier than usual. I hope they aren't past their prime by fair time. Also, the garden veggies are growing very good. They should be ready by fair time. You can pick up complete lists of the classes and entry times at the Extension Office. If you would like to help with entry and display of exhibits, you can call Eileen Fisse. We can always use people to help with hanging quilts, photographs, and other articles. It gets quite warm in the cases, and it helps to have someone to relieve others so that no one overheats.

Now that the cookout season is in full swing, I will give you some recipes to help you. Maybe they are some that you've never made before.
