K-State Research and Extension horticulture agent Matt McKernan says it was certainly a stroke of good luck that organizers of the K-State Garden Hour – held the first Wednesday of each month — began planning for a series on gardening during drought nearly a year ago.

“Periods of drought are always a concern in Kansas,” said McKernan, who works in K-State’s Sedgwick County extension office. “Unfortunately this year, drought is an even greater concern for most of Kansas due to limited rainfall and exceptional drought conditions.”
