Agronomist: Hold off on peanut planting; soil temperatures not stable

Peanut planters are cautioned not to plant too early this year.

According to the UGA extension's blog, UGA Agronomist Dr. Scott Tubbs says growers should be careful due to "strong possibilities for a cold front to drop soil temperatures rapidly."

Now go flinging!  Please come back and tell me how many pet supplies you were able to fling today.

Report cards for Georgia schools released

ATLANTA (AP) - State education officials say Georgia's elementary and middle schools improved overall during the last two years. But high schools on average are struggling to boost their students' performance.

That's according to new data released on Monday. The state is releasing two years of scores for school districts, including an update to previously released 2012 numbers.

The original 2012 numbers were the result of a similar system, rating schools on a scale of 100.

Spring Fling Day 19 - Recipes

Spring Fling Day 19 - Recipes

Welcome to the Spring Fling. Join us every day in April to start flinging the clutter from your life!

 

We all do it - ripping yummy looking recipes out of magazines and newspapers. Then those slips of papers languish in a folder, file or cupboard forever, never to be used again. So this fling is to go through your collection of torn-out recipes and, being brutally honest with yourself, toss the recipes that you’ve never made, you are never going to make and if you did, you’d go online to find the recipe.

 

Now go flinging!  Please come back and tell me how many unneeded recipes you were able to fling today.
