Tuesday, August 6, 2013 Cold Spring Record Page 11 By Judy Johannes, Stearns CO Master Gardener August in the garden is for picking, keeping up with the weeds and dead heading. Pro- duce this year is later, but it is coming. Tomatoes like this weather, warm days and cool nights signal the fruit to ripen. Blossom drop was not a big prob- lem. The tomatoes will appreci- ate water and fertilizer while they are setting fruit. You can find fertilizer especially for toma- toes, but any vegetable formulat- ed type will do. Follow directions. If you miss it, fine. Tomatoes are low care plants. Watch for the fungal diseases. Watering at the base of the plant or in the morn- ing help prevent them. Flowers that are done bloom- ing can be dead headed, the flow- ers cut off preventing the plant from putting its energy into mak- ing seed pods. Cutting the spent flowers on shrub roses may help the plant produce another, though smaller, flush of flowers. Leave the next flowers to produce the rose hips for the winter birds, or use them yourself to make a jelly high in vitamin C. Peonies look much nearer with the old flowers cut. Do not cut the plants back until fall when the growing season is done. Other flowers that benefit from dead-heading or cutting off the flower heads are iris, day- lilies, penstremon, and most an- nuals. I like to totally cut back the yarrows and give them a chance to start re-growing. After so long they look messy and this prevents reseeding, though I find the pastel and golden do not re- seed much. Keep an eye on the coneflowers and remove any with aster yellow. I have not noticed any new disease, hopefully the aster leaf hoppers will keep their distance this year. The new plants of coneflowers look healthy. This is one time I appre- ciate the reseeded plants. Monitor for pests. Picnic bee- tles like over-ripe fruit. Keep the raspberries and strawberries picked and remove the over-ripe and damaged fruit. Melinda Mey- er suggests making a trap with 1 cup water, 1 cup dark corn syrup, 1 cake yeast, and a spoonful of vinegar. Place the mixture in a container and place the container away from the garden to attract the beetles away. Aphids can be controlled with insecticidal soap which has to be applied several times 5 to 7 days apart. This is when you appreciate the good bugs. So far there is not much new in the Extensions Home Food Preservation Newsletter. It stat- ed that the steam canners are not recommended because the safety has not been researched. The research on their safety is in process but will take until next year for the results. Also new are the blue canning jars. They are for nostalgia and as safe as the clear jars. They would not be a good choice for canned foods you are entering in a county or state fair since your product is judged by looks and taste and the color is distorted. Produce has not been available in great abun- dance. Peas and beans are pro- ducing. Peas are best frozen. If beans are canned you will need a pressure canner and follow the instructions with the canner. This is the time of year to en- joy a walk through the garden. You can see the fruits of you la- bor. Use your camera and take pictures, including photos of fruits and vegetables, but espe- cially the flowers. Eleven youth, along with chaperones Pastor Mark Astrup, hiswife Cheryl; and youth direc- tor Caitlin Schnettler, left from Peace Lutheran Church of Cold Spring on Sunday, July 14 to spend a week at Standing Rock Indian Reservation in South Dakota. After returning they shared stories of fun, enrich- ment and thanksgiving at church services on Sunday, July 21. One mentioned how she had not appreciated the green grass in her lawn until she saw how the reservation lived with most- ly dirt lawns. All of them re- turned with new outlooks on how others live. Hometown Pride Days found the Peace Lutheran Pie Stand in its midst once again. Everyone chipped in with the baking and working the stand with the funds going to the youth, for fu- ture trips. Caitlin Schnettler has been the youth director at Peace for the past two years and has done an amazing job with the youth. Caitlin has recently taken a teaching job in Little Falls. She will be moving there, so has ten- dered her resignation. She will be greatly missed. There was a reception for Caitlin after Sun- day services on July 28. Retired Pastor Joe Nystuen was honored on Sunday, July 21 for his 50 year anniversary as an ordained minister of God. Peace Lutheran Church has been so fortunate to have Joe and wife Nancy retire to the community and become a part of Peace. Vacation Bible School was the week of July 28th. Four young women who are councilors at Luther Crest led the week. They presented songs, and a skit, on Sunday, July 28th to start the week.

Rockville, MN Hess Family hiropractic Main By David V. LeVine In the good old days of radio and through the early years of tel- evision, most everyone knew the words "snap, crackle and pop." The words meant only one thing, Rice Krispies in the ol' breakfast cereal bowl. One could actually lather the cereal with whole milk and listen to the snap, crackle and pop symphony. Kids and grown- ups loved it. Today, folks talk about going to see the crack-back, the bone rat- tler and whatever else they may drum up to humorously identify the chiropractor. On June 17th this year, a young lady born and raised in Business Hess Family Chiropractic is located on Main Street in Cold Spring across from Cold Spring Eye Clinic. Cannon Falls, Minnesota opened Hess Family Chiropractic at 216 Main Street. She could easily double as an interior decorator of note. She gutted the longtime former home of Movies and More and com- pletely redecorated the place with soft shades from the color spec- trum throughout. She is Kristin Hess, D.C., currently residing in and daily com- muting from Becker, MN. Doctor Hess and family will shortly move to Cold Spring. How does one choose to become a Doctor of Chiropractic? At Cannon Falls high school, Dr. Hess was a four sport ath- lete, won a track scholarship to Northern Michigan University and later transferred to St. Cloud State University. As a high jumper her falls into a foam pit seemed to cause chronic ion Grant ahd Kristin with their son, Crew. headaches. A trip to a Marquette, Michigan chiropractor became the fkX. Kristin was so impressed with the cure she "shadowed" that doc- tor and became convinced that this would be her life's career. In September 2009 she enrolled in Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, MN. Three and one half years later her Doctorate of Chiropractic degree was in hand along with special training in treating pediatric pa- tients and pregnant women. Northwestern U was founded in 1941 and is an international leader in health care education, patient care and research. Its five public clinics form the largest nat- ural health care system in Min- nesota. Dr. Kristin's husband Grant is employed by Great River Ener- gy as a lineman for the state's second largest electric utility. Grant and Kristin take special pride in their 3-month old son, Crew. The question is asked, why do so many choose Dr. Kristin? The answer comes easily. They are referred. People send their fami- lies and friends to her. Dr. Kristin is well-known for her Pain Elimination - Get Well Evaluation, a comfortable 15 minute evaluation that gets to the hidden cause of your nagging aches and pains. She also special- izes in care for headaches, migraines, neck pain, back pain, TMJ disorder, shoulder/arm pain, hip/leg pain, carpal tunnel, pregnan- cy symptoms, fibromyalgia, work injuries and car accident in- juries. Although the doors have been open since mid-June, a mini Grand Opening is scheduled for Friday, August 16th from 2 to 6PM. Dr. Kristin Hess is ready to schedule your appointment. Call her at 685-4360 or go to for more information. / 'l Recently, two employees from the St. Cloud Walmart Vision Center, Abby and Doris, visited Assumption Home in Cold Spring in order to provide a well-appre- ciated service to the residents and apartment tenants cleaning glasses, making adjustments, re- placing nose pads, and sharing some friendly conversation. To top it off, each person also re- ceived their own free cleaning so- lution and cleaning cloth. This service visit was initiated by St. Cloud Walmart Vision Center Manager, April, who con- tacted Volunteer Coordinator, Serena Robak, to ask if they could visit Assumption Home and provide his voluntary serv- ice. Abby and Doris made two sep- arate visits to Assumption Home, providing a total of 5 hours of service, reaching out to a total of 40 recipients of their services.
