The 4-H Sprouts "Sweet Tater Time"

Now called "the brain"  this was the largest sweet potato that we dug up so far.
This is one of the largest sweet potatoes that the 4-H Sprouts Club grew.  We still have some digging to do but the harvest so far has been plentiful. Erin Duggan is holding the "big tater" that she dug up.  The Sprouts are a 4-H Club that teaches youth about agriculture and other sustainable living practices.  Youth have learned about canning, felting, raising sheep for food, and of course growing our own food.  Nancy Duggan is the volunteer leader for the club and loves the soil and the teaching youth about sustainable living.
First big "tater"  little did we know there were bigger out there!
Some normal size sweet potatoes.

8th Annual Scott Hogsed Youth Conservation Day

Nathan Kephart shows off his catch at this annual event.
         It is that time of year again to get your youth registered for the annual Scott Hogsed Memorial Youth Conservation & Education Day.  This year it is required   that all youth pre-register.  This can be done by visiting www.scotthogsedday.com  pre-registration closes on August 23.
         The event, which is held in Brasstown, NC on Fred Cook’s farm, is a growing event.  The date is Saturday, August 25 gates open at 7:00AM and it is totally FREE.  Youth will be learning about outdoor activities including hunting and fishing, archery and firearm safety, and much, much more.  We are excited about some new booths this year coming to the event so it will not be the same as in the past.  One or two things new that you can expect this year are booths from the Eastern Band of the Cherokee Indians and the Tennessee Valley Authority.  We will of course have the shooting range, fishing pond, and the bow range but we did change our line up a bit so register now.  Youth and youth groups, ages 7-17, are invited to attend from all across the region and the nation. This event also offers a free wild game lunch for all participants and parents.  Of course, youth will receive a free t-shirt and goody bag as well as being entered to win one of our great door prizes.
        Each year we honor a young person that is no longer with us, this year we will be honoring Reece Penland. Reece was an avid outdoorsman and loved his country.  Reece was serving with the National Guard 210th Military Police when he was killed.  He was working on relief efforts with Hurricane Floyd when his Humvee flip after hitting an object in the sand.  Reece was thrown from the Humvee and he died instantly.  Reece received the Meritorious Service Medal from Governor Hunt and was also inducted into  the Police Hall of Fame in Titusville, Florida.
        If you would like more information about the event visit the website at             www.scotthogsedday.com or contact the North Carolina Cooperative Extension at 828- 837-2210.  August 25 will be here before you know it so register soon!!
