Friday Radio Report – Charged up & Ready for FALL | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Great show today! And, great to be back home! LOTS of calls today and LOTS of interest in the upcoming Moonlight Pond Tour, Saturday, September 22nd.!

The Moonlight Pond Tour takes place each Fall and coincides with the Full Moon (the Harvest Moon). This year it’s Saturday, September 22nd. The Moonlight Pond Tour showcases Water Gardens, Pondless Waterfalls, Disappearing Fountains, Koi Ponds & more, all under a Gorgeous ‘Moonlit sky’ & enhanced by AWESOME Landscape Lighting | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Tickets are $20 ea. (kids under 12 are FREE!). 100% of ALL ticket sales & donations go to the Jackson Animal Care Center!

There were several questions and texts about the Fall Gardening season too. When to start planting and what to plant. – It’s time! I will do a more detailed list of cool season veggies to plant ASAP! Get your soil amended and ready NOW!

And – When can I overseed my lawn with Fescue? NOW! Aerate, overseed & fertilize starting now. Remember – moisture is key, so if you don’t have an irrigation system, layout hoses and sprinklers to keep it watered during this time.

– Downtown Ricky Brown stopped in to say HI & brought us a box of donuts! Thanks Ricky!

– AND – Basketball great Tony Delk called in to talk about coming home & about helping young upcoming basketball players with his Tony Delk Basketball Academy – he’s coming today to Liberty High in Jackson to do that very thing. Thanks Tony!

We talked briefly about my recent trip to Chicago for CEU training & that turned into a Culinary discussion on all the great food in the Windy City! Italian Beef! Chicago Hotdogs! Chicago Style Pizza! BBQ! Pastries! And the list goes on!!!

The “Tomato Lady” Cindy Springer, called in to say HI & wished us all a Happy Labor Day!

A caller wanted to know how close to plant a fig tree to the house. I would choose a south facing wall then stay 6-8’ off the wall OR espalier the tree against the wall using proper techniques.

Have a Safe & Happy Labor Day Weekend!
