Hays Free Press July 3, 2013 NEIGHBORS Page 3C Good neighbor policy is a two-way street on July 4th BY GENE HALL Public Relations Director, Texas Farm Bureau July 4th - the 237th birthday of our nation this week-will be quite a party across Texas and the na- tion. They all are. As Americans, we know how to celebrate and the birth of our republic is certainly worth celebrat- ing. I mean, a noisy birth- day with fireworks is really something. If it is not also celebrated with common sense and good manners, then it can be a very bad day for someone. Farmers and ranchers try very hard to be good neighbors. We realize that not everyone understands the how and the why of agricultural practices. Many farm and ranch families spend a lot of time listening to concerns and answering those questions, but being a good neighbor is a two- way street. Many cities have banned fireworks due to safety concerns and, without meaning to do so, have exported the problem to rural areas. Much of Texas&apos; drought- scarred landscape remains tinder dry. A spark can quickly become a six- figure nightmare of a loss to a farmer or rancher. A single firecracker could ignite a blaze that could consume buildings, pastures, crops and burn livestock to death. All of that will probably hap- pen sometime this week as fireworks are misused. Wildfire has recently taken the lives of professional firefighters in the west. That has also happened here and will again. No one would want to set off a chain of events like that in the name of entertain- ment. Of course, the safest course for fireworks is to watch the dozens of magnificent professional displays in our big cit- ies and small towns. If you must light the fuses yourself, know where the sparks land and make sure that no blazes result. Happy birthday, Ameri- ca- let's celebrate safely!

When gardeners think of marigolds, they think of annual color that lasts from the spring to the fall. This versatile fam- ily of plants also has two notable species that are wonderful perenni- als in our Central Texas gardens: Mexican mint marigold (Tagetes lucida), and Copper Canyon daisy ( Tagetes lemonii ). Mexican mint marigold, known also as yerba anise in Spanish, has an en- chanting anise fragrance to its leaves, and pretty button-size yellow flowers in the fall. It emerges in the spring and makes a deeply green plant which grows to a height and width of three feet by the end of summer. And it makes a beautiful flower display in the fall. In the kitchen, you can use its leaves as a substi- tute for French tarragon in culinary recipes. Some gardeners call it 'Texas tarragon.' This marigold is also good for cut flow- ers and is not invasive. Copper Canyon Daisy is the other perennial flow- ering marigold. It grows to a height of 3 feet and spreads out to a width of 4 feet. The foliage has a strong scent and you can expect a show of yellow flowers in the spring and fall. Both of these marigolds are easy to grow and deer resistant. Give them at least a half day of sun, and once established, they will need very little watering. Happy Gardening Ev- eryone!
