A variety of area events and saying goodbye to Gary Marcy

Hello, Ashtabula County. Can you believe it is already June? Our farmers have made great progress this past week.
A lot of corn has been planted and soybeans will be planted like crazy over the next two weeks. So keep your fingers crossed for good weather.
As we jump into June, I would like to take a trip to the variety store.
Here is hoping for a great month of weather!
The cool temperatures and heavy rainfall in May really stalled planting in most of Ashtabula County.
This means the shortened planting season may cause local farmers to have to claim prevented planting, especially on corn acreage.
The final planting date for corn in Ohio is June 5 and the final planting date for soybeans is June 20.
The most important thing you can do if you are unable to plant the crop by the final planting date is contact your crop insurance agent to review your policy and options before you make a decision.
You are required to provide notice that you were prevented from planting an insured crop within 72 hours after the final planting date.
We are pleased to announce the 4-H Camp Week conducted by Ashtabula County Extension will be held June 29 to July 5 at 4-H Camp Whitewood in Windsor.
This camp is open to all youth ages 8-14 years old. This year’s theme is “Red, Whitewood and Blue.”
This theme is very appropriate due to camp being conducted over the 4th of July Holiday. We will celebrate America! 
Camp Whitewood is a beautiful 226 acre camp nestled in Warner’s Hollow in Windsor.
Camp Whitewood is absolutely beautiful with its historic Indian fort, covered bridge, footprint rock, natural waterfalls, streams, and a six acre lake.
I know our camp counselors have a lot of great evening activities planned along with the traditional swimming, boating, crafts, environmental education, outdoor living skills, shooting sports and campfires.
