Wildflowers of Kentucky: Orange Jewelweed

It lists other names: Impatiens, and touch-me-nots. According to the article, the orange jewelweed is common. But a variant, yellow jewelweed, is not, posing the question: Does any reader know of any yellow jewelweed in this area. - ED

Soybeans - beyond edamame, nighing feed & steering wheels

2016-09-26 - Egypt, Adair County, KY - Photo by Linda Waggener, (c).
Linda spotted these maturing soybeans near Plum Point Baptist Church and wondered if they could be eaten as edamame. Of course, enlightenment is needed, if anyone in Adair County has experience eating locally grown soybeans as a vegetable. These appear to be beyond the edamame stage. Seeing the crop, oldsters may remember when the crop was rarely, if ever seen in Adair County. They will remember it from trips to exotic places like Jefferson County, KY and Henderson or Daviess County. In the summer time, entering Jefferson County via Dixie Highway, past Benny's First & Last Stop, through Kosmosdale and on into Shively, their were vast truck farms as well as fields of soybeans. The eldest made it a teaching moment to let other passengers know about soybeans. Back home in Adair County, perhaps the earliest memories, too, might have been of the expert in all things automotive 10 year old peer, who would put their hands on the steering wheel, and ask another if they knew what the steering wheel was made of, and quickly, before the other could answer, say "Soybeans." Indeed some early steering wheels were made from soybean derivatives. Since those days in the 1950s, soybeans have become the major row crop in the county, and that raises the question, what farmer first raised the crop on scale, and when, in Adair County? - EW

Chris Bennett: Larry Dudley a great music teacher

Chris Bennett writes:
Larry Dudley was a great music teacher for us at Columbia Music Center he was very professional and reliable.

Each music teacher has their own style but with Larry Dudley there was constant music coming from the lesson room. I can think of no better compliment to describe a music teacher than hearing the kind of music coming from the room that Larry and his students produced. --Chris Bennett
