Spring has officially begun, and some area residents are beginning to plant gardens, flowers, and other items in their yards and fields. Years ago, a good bit of agriculture-related news appeared in front-page stories of the local newspaper.

Legends and lore, as well as factual information, were all included in the paper's stories.
