KNOX TOWN NEWS

By Rita Doughty | Aug 06, 2017

Hello To All,

Been quiet and everyone busy I guess. Garden's to tend, and lawn's to mow. Some folks are... Getting the school kids ready for school. MVHS K-6 and 9th Grade's start on August 30th, and the rest on August 31st. I remember when it was after Labor Day. Summer is half gone they say. The weather has cooled off, and now today was not humid. That was great. The veggie's are coming along fine. I have managed to get cucumber's to eat, besides what I have growing. Summer squash, zucchini, and chard lately. And more....
