Then use this test to correctly adjust the amount of crude protein your forage actually Will provide. Garden Catalogs are arriving While its cold outside, gardeners dream of spring and perhaps order a few plants and seeds. Looking through these catalogs can tempt almost any- one except those with severe agora- phobia to at least dream about a gar- den. One of the tactics a couple of the companies are using is with a $50 order they have a $25 coupon cutting the price in half. This would seem to indicate the regular mtai,l price is a little high. The coupon certainlymakes their pnces more reasonable but. un- less you are planting a.cflup!e of. trees, few hobby gardener ,need i.hat'mlic.h seed. At the least get together'w'ith your gardening friendsand pool your orders and even split packOts of seed. hills of zucchini does one garden need? The coupons expire long before gardening season_ so. there is pressure to order soon. February is still early for 19cking in gardening decisions. Another problem; eyes bigger than space, time ind'labor. Often more satisfactibn can be gained from a small well cared for gardenthan a large plot in constant need of weed- ing, watering and spraying(hobby vs. job). A second issue is climate and growing season. Post Rock is in Z0ne 5 forperenni- als. The lower the number tiae'10wer the winter temperature a plant can sur- vive. With small variations Within the Post Rock District there is a. realistic growing season of 120 days (mid May to mid September). Plants that don' t fit may grow, but are in6t dependable. Even some Zone 5 plants have "issues. Many apricot trees are rated Zone 5 and indeed grow well andlook nice. But, this is Kansas; apricots blobm early, couple that with late freezes and expect apricots one or two years out of 10. Do not confuse  plant hardiness with reliability of yield. K-State publi- cations "Recommended Vegetable Va- rieties and Small and Tree Fi-uit Cul- tivars" provide rec0mmendationsTor choosing fruit or vegetables based on productivity and adaptability. Next determine what will be utilized., Most garden produce is uti.lized at home. There is little point in .plaoting egg- plant if no one in your family will eat them. That doesn't prohibit ]?!anting for fun. I plant habanero peppers each year• One or two of these orange pep- pers add sufficient fire to gallons of salsa, but I like to grow them Fold down the pages and mark the desired plants, but before filling out the order form. look realistically at your re- sources and needs and then combine your order with a friend.

Richard Cox's messasge for the morning was from Luke 2 : 1-20. This passage of scripture tells of the birth of Jesus.

At Christmas time. we some- times are like the Inn in the story of Jesus' birth...we have no room for Him.
