Joyce Coomer: Never considered Goldenrod invasive

She also suggests, for those who dislike Goldenrod, that mowing may actually help additional propagation of the flower

By Joyce Coomer

I have never considered goldenrod to be an invasive plant as it's no more wide-spread in our pasture now than it was nearly 30 years ago when we bought this farm.

There are places growing goldenrod and iron weed, places growing poke, places growing Queen Anne's lace, places growing all of these combined, places growing Johnson grass (which is VERY invasive), places growing yellow flowers I haven't been able to identify, places growing wild asters, etc. . . . I've always considered goldenrod a peaceful plant as it hasn't taken over the pasture.

Maybe mowing increases the spreading of goldenrod -- the action of the mower would spread the seeds over a wider area than if the seeds just drop to the ground. We don't mow the entire pasture every year since we like to have a place for wildlife to take refuge. Joyce M. Coomer

Letter: Thinks Clear Springs Road repairs unneccessary

S BAIR writes:
I live on the other side of this repair and in my opinion, it is a BIG waste of money. Being there are only 6 properties past the low spot and three of those are rentals and one is empty. I'm sure somewhere in Adair County there is a bridge with more people on it that needs this more than we do.

If they feel the need to do something on Clear Springs they could widen it between the cattle crossings where you first come off 80, at least this would benifit every one on the road not just a few. Just my own personal opinion. --S BAIR

Jon Halsey: On Goldenrods - Let well enough alone

An eloquent statement for pluralism in plant kingdom - CM

Jon Halsey writes:
Yes, it is pretty especially in mass grouping. However, there in lies the potential problem.

As an aggressively invasive plant, Goldenrod has a tendency to create a monoculture crowding out other desirable species.

For that reason very few Garden/Landscape Centers sell the plant even though there are non-wild cultivars available.

It seems to me that it would be most unwise to try to foster the unnatural growth of this plant and instead be content with enjoying it where it appears in the natural order. Several adages from our wise ancestors come to mind: "Let well enough alone." and "If it ain't broke don't fix it." and "Only man would try to improve on what the Good Lord did so well in the first place."

John McCasland: Bees make incredible amount of honey from Goldenrod

John McCasland writes:
Not only is goldenrod very photogenic but honeybees put up an incredible amount of honey from it in the fall. It replenishes their stores before going into the winter and sometimes is essential to their survival. Some say the beehive smells like dirty socks while the bees are putting it up; but while it is a dark honey, it is very sweet and delicious and has no disagreeable odor. - John McCasland

Epicurean Kentuckian Query: Tomato Pie

Can anyone share a recipe?

Fran Neat writes:
I met a lady this week from Somerset who expressed interest in a local restaurant that specializes in "tomato pie." She had seen the information in a publication some time ago but no longer has access to it. I am on a quest to locate that information for her. I just wondered if you or your readers know about the mysterious "tomato pie." - Fran Neat
Thanks, Fran Neat Maybe one of our readers can help. I think they serve it at Annie Ruby's Cafe, 204 Court House Square, Burkesville, KY.

Plane crash had Columbia ties: Dr. Vengu and Jay

Dr. Narayan Venguswamy was surgeon at Westlake Regional Hospital; wife Jayanthy Venguswamy was talented interior decorator
About: Kentucky couple killed in Chicago area on Wave3.com

By Melissa Stone

The couple who were killed in the plane crash earlier this week had close ties to Columbia. Dr. Narayan Venguswamy and his wife, Jayanthy Venguswamy were known to us simply as Dr. Vengu and Jay. During their time here, he was a surgeon at our local hospital and she was a talented interior decorator and wonderful mother to their only son, Kartik. Many have asked over the years how my son came about such an unusual middle name. Kristopher Cartik is named after the son of a wonderful couple who made a lasting impression.

I have no other information on funeral arrangements at this time.
