One benefit of the cooler, rainy weather at the end of May and into the beginning of this month is that gardens are producing very well.

McPherson County K-State Extension agent Jana McKinney cautions you to take care when farming your produce.

“If you don't take care of it, preserve it in the right way, then you could harm your family,” McKinney said. “And we certainly wouldn't want that to happen.”

McKinney says literature about raising your home-grown produce safely is available at the Extension office on West Woodside in McPherson.
