Two articles about the new report have just been published:

With the hailstorms last night throughout the eastern part of Nebraska, I wanted to remind or introduce you all to resources for crop producers developed by Nebraska Extension.  A website, videos, and infographics were created due to the devastating hailstorms in 2014.

Late summer and fall can be a dreary time in the landscape, with little else but coreopsis and Black-eyed Susan blooming. So it's a good idea to plan, and plant, now for color in your fall gardens.

 

Asters are an excellent plant to add for additional fall color. Two species of aster, which are both improvements on native wildflowers, are New England Aster and New York Aster. Both aster species are native to the United States, although much of the breeding work to develop improved varieties has been done in England and Germany.

 

Trees, Shrubs and Vines for Sandy, Dry Conditions

 

When the soil around your home or getaway cabin is less than ideal, you can fight it by planting trees and shrubs that aren't well adapted to the site or select plants that do well in the conditions your landscape provides. Although many locations in Nebraska have clay soil, sandy soil is also very common especially along the Platte River and across the Sandhills.
