The free garden calendar, WVU Extension Service's most-requested publication, is now available at the Gilmer County WVU Extensmn of- fice and at the Gilmer County Court- house. The monthly calendar and garden- ing guide offers information helpful to both beg inning and avid gardeners. The calendar provides day-to-day planting and harvesting reminders. Notes range from tips oh when to plan your garden layout to when to mulch roses. In January, readers are reminded to avoid using salt where runoff might injure plants and are encouraged to create garden plans documenting when and where the garden will be planted. In February, reminders in- clude tips about ordering fruit trees and seeding vegetables indoors. The important notes continue through December. Each month, the calendar features a short article on a novel or problematic topic. An extra bonus is the Extension Experts page, which gives leads on finding inexpensive mulch, tips about feeding trees and other gardening in- sights. The calendar lists the phone num- ber of each county office of the WVU Extension Service. To begin the 2009 gardening sea- son with a green thumb, look to the experts.

D. "For we must needs die. and are as water split on the ground, which cannot be gathered up again; neither cloth God respect any person: yet doth he devise means, that his banished be not expelled Yon, him." (2 Samuel 14:14) These words of the "wise woman of Fekoah," spoken to King David con- cerning Absalom, his son, were wiser than she knew, for they reflect a prin- ciple deteriorate and die; this declension cannot be reserved any more than water 9outed down on the ground can be "un- poured" up into the cup again. This principle is the famous law of entropy ("in-turning"). Physical systems wear out; biological organisms get old and die; societies and empires/all and vanish. All these phenomena are local expressions of God's universal curse on man and all his dominion (Genesis 3:14 -19). It applies to everything, without exception However, the very existence of the law of entropy points to a Creator, be- cause systems that are wearing out must I have been made new. and being that dies must first have been gl ven life. The very idea of a universal naturalistic evolution of all things into more complex systems is contrary to all real scientific data and is contradicted by all human experience. Nevertheless, the God who created all things can surely "devise means" by which the law of decay can be set aside. Solar energy and the hydrologic cycle can raise the spilled water, the sinful life can be purified by God's grace and the blood of Christ; and the dead can .be revivedby the resurrection lifeofChrist. Someday the curse itself will be re- moved when God creates new heavens and a new earth, and the whole creation "shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God" (Romans 8:21).
