“I don’t like this!” This statement is one that children or youth might use during a heated game, when being asked to correct unwanted behavior or when plans change. For those children and youth who were looking forward to milestones like field days, end of school year celebrations, prom, or graduation, they have reason to believe that life can be sad, frustrating, and difficult.
As temperatures begin to rise and spring moves closer, don’t’ forget to take a bit of time to assess alfalfa stands for winter kill and overall health going into this year’s growing season. While this winter was much milder compared to what we experienced last year, older stands or late harvested alfalfa still have a potential for winter kill.
Even before plants begin to green up, individual plant assessments can be done. While assessment before green-up occurs may seem a bit preemptive, a bit of pre-scouting now can focus more accurate scouting efforts to problem areas later on when time becomes precious during spring planting.
Tune in every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon at 2:00 PM CT/1:00 PM MT for Nebraska 4-H's Living Room Learning! Each day, youth will participate in a hands-on virtually guided activity where they will learn about healthy living, science, technology, and more! Each session will focus on a new activity that can be done with materials found at home. Each session will be recorded and made available for on-demand viewing. Youth do not need to be 4-H members to participate.
