DBA's Weekly Publication:

Program Notes:
Master Gardener, Dorothy Shockley, shared her passion for gardening and specifically addressed how to grow tomatoes. Dorothy grew up gardening and when she and her husband, Tommy, purchased their current home, they resettled over 13 trees in order that their yard would have enough sunlight to permit her to continue to pursue her passion. The key to good tomatoes is good soil. Tomatoes need 1 inch of water per week and should be fertilized when planted and again when fruits began to appear. Cut back at least one-third to one-half of the tomato plant in mid to late July and you can then enjoy a second crop of fall tomatoes. So, which is it: tom?to or tom?to?

Program Notes:
When is an ant not an ant? When it is a red velvet ant (pictured) because a red velvet ant is actually a wasp. Tuesday’s speaker, Bob Nienstadt of Abrock Pest Control, provided this and other tidbits about pests and lawn care. His pest control company provides lawn fertilization as part of their services. A typical fertilization schedule is for 4 treatments per year, with the spring and fall treatments being critical due to the effectiveness of the herbicides that are included with the fertilization. The most effective process for weed reduction is maintaining a healthy lawn. Also, fleas that are under stress will not reproduce.

Program Notes:
PER TED TALK: Change the way you think about stress and reduce the harmful effects of stress. Everyone experiences stress and by realizing that your body’s response to stress is actually healthful, you can minimize the negative results of stress. When experiencing stress realize that your body is reacting in a manner that is helping you cope with the situation. Stress makes one social and spending time caring for others creates resilience to stress. So, be stressed and be healthy.

Program Notes:
“Human Resources (HR) is interesting for no other reason than it is interesting”, says Allen Fischer . Allen and his associate, Chris, offer off-site HR services. They make sure that an employer has the requisite forms in order to be in compliance with state and federal regulations so that when an employee tries to “stomp on you” everything will be in order. They ease the burden all employers carry with regards to employees. Kids strapped in car seats is part of the problem, but that’s a story for another time.
