Pictured abve - she is helping Grady Knapp. This year Lewiston had "new to district" kids come to roundup so there were not at many kids at roundup as in years past but the overall projections for next year look good. Pre-K teacher, Mary Robison said, "We are looking at 16 or 17 kindergartners and around 12 in each pre-k class. We do expect numbers to continue to grow especially in the pre-k classrooms as it  is so early. We always have kiddos add after roundup."

Gardeners ready for hoe-down

This is an interview Ray Kappel did with Nicole Stoner, an expert in gardening, with the Gage County Extention office on how and when to get into your garden. Q: When can you start working  in your garden? A: Vegetable gardens can be worked in the spring as soon as the ground is dry and workable. However, this early in the spring,  e should not be planting any  crops yet. Cool season cropssuch as carrots, lettuce, spinach, broccoli, and cauliflower can be  planted in late March to earlyApril. Potatoes and peas can  be planted in the middle to lateMarch. Our summer vegetable  crops should not be planted untilMother’s Day, after the fear of frost has passed. You can start cleaning your flower gardens in the month of March. Don’t do too much too soon as the leaves that are still around the plant, are insulating the plant from cold temperaturesefficient.
