OSU Extension offers great gardening resources

As Oklahoma residents continue to follow social distancing guidelines, some people are turning to gardening to help pass the time. Although the state has many seasoned gardeners, others are picking up seeds and potting soil for the first time and are getting a little dirt under their nails.

President Donald J. Trump hasn't called on his presidential predecessors to help him address the coronavirus threat. Instead, two of them made the call themselves in recent days – not to the White House, but to the American people.

When Christine Blasey Ford accused Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump's Supreme Court nominee, of sexual assault, Joe Biden told reporters: "For a woman to come forward in the glaring lights of focus, nationally, you've got to start off with the presumption that at least the essence of what she's talking about is real – whether or not she forgets facts, whether or not it's been made worse or better over time."

DEAR HARRIETTE: I have contributed to a number of charities over the years. I feel good about that, because I want to support causes that I believe in. But I am uncertain as to what I can give right now that I have been laid off from my job. I am single, and I live on my own. I have no idea when I will get another job. I feel horrible that I cannot be generous right now, but I worry that if I continue to pledge to the 10 charities that I normally give money to that I won’t have enough for myself. What should I do? — Dry Well
