Keith D. Mickler, Floyd County Extension Coordinator, shares some tips on helping your plants and trees survive in this scalding hot and mostly dry Northwest Georgia summer.  Watering is key – but not nearly as much as you might think His biggest concern isn’t the drought but too much aqua. 
  • Keith has some key advice for area farmers as well when it comes to applying enough water as the sun evaporates much of what’s in the soil.
  • Plus: How to chase those varmints from your home gardens, whether they’re chipmunks or deer (please don’t share with PETA).
  • Keith joined Hometown HeadlinesJohn Druckenmiller for this podcast at Brand Red Studios, 4 Bale St. off Fifth Avenue in downtown Rome. We thank Todd LaBerge for another round of solid podcast production.
