Throwback Thursday | Memories That You Can Count On! | The Smell Of Homegrown Tomato’s 🍅

Some memories are so powerful they not only touch the senses, they drive you back again and again… Yes, I’m talking some serious stuff this morning! I’m talking Tomato’s 🍅

What a gorgeous throwback picture! This one was taken around 7 years ago. Every year I try to recreate this scene…

Do you grow your own Tomato’s? If you don’t, this might not resonate with you at all… But, if you do, you know exactly what I’m talking about! There’s nothing like peak “Mater season”! When the counter is covered in them and you have jars full of Tommy toes, and every meal has a tomato component… 1 word – Heaven!

The simplicity of a tomato sandwich is very understated. White bread, mayonnaise, salt 🧂 pepper and fresh sliced homegrown tomatoes 🍅…Whew’… Give me a moment… talk amongst yourselves…

The bad part is the end of Tomato season… When you start to see the end. You know your gonna have to face a long Winter with NO fresh tomatoes… That’s when these pictures and these old memories come back to haunt you… But, right now, that’s a ways off! Right now is tomato time! 💥 My advice, get out there and make some memories!

Get all you can now! If you have too many, can em’! Because, like the man says “Winter is Coming”! 🐺

PS: IF you didn’t grow your own, there’s always next year… The next best thing is a trip to the farmers market. But do it soon! Look for older, heirloom varieties if available. My favorite slicing tomato is a Cherokee Purple. One bite and you’ll know why 😊

Here’s a little Love Song for ya’ on this #Throwbackthursday morning.

Have a great day! 😉🍅

Throwback Thursday

Jo and I always celebrate our wedding anniversary by taking a few days off. Looking back and looking forward is very important for a good relationship! I am sitting in a marina having lunch with Jo as I type this 😊 we are swapping old pictures and I wanted to make this one my #throwbackthursday picture.

I love this picture! ❤️ My dad is my best man, and 3 of my best friends are with me as groomsmen (ps: we are all still great friends! Family ❤️). My wife is so beautiful 🤩 as are all her brides maids.

Throwback Thursday is always a special day.

Have a great day!

Sent Memories | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Are you on Facebook? If not, you might find this interesting 🤔 If you are, then you know of what I speak… Everyday I get a picture that I personally posted, usually years ago, it just pops up in my home feed, it’s labeled as a “Facebook Memory” and it tells you exactly how many years ago that you originally posted it. Then you get to look back through the comments and likes, and if you want you can share it as a Story or to your feed and friends. At first, I didn’t know what to think about it, but I have grown to enjoy them and I usually share them again. 

These pictures of our work that I have posted from years ago, just pop up as a “Facebook memory”… Actually pretty cool 😎 | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Today’s memory was 3 years old. A couple of days ago it was a 7 year memory that I had forgotten about… 

What do YOU think 🤔 about the way social media like Facebook has changed our daily lives? How, if any, has it changed yours? 

“Memories, brought to you by Facebook”… 

Screenshot of what it looks like on your device. Do you look at these? Do you find it charming, or invasive? Just asking…

I have grown to think that it helps me share what I do. Our work at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio is so visual! It’s hard to describe what we build so that you can form an accurate picture in your minds eye… So that picture you see, of what your backyard could actually look like, is worth a thousand words… 

I’m writing this outside and it’s starting to rain  🌧 I hope you enjoyed it 😊

Have a Great Weekend!

Throwback Thursday…

Way way back when I had a head full of red hair👨🏻‍🦰Jo hasn’t changed much in all these years… At least not as much as I have 😊

Way back when I had more hair on my head than my face 😂 #throwbackthursday

I have grown to Love posting these old pictures for Throwback Thursday! A picture is truly worth a thousand words.

Throwback Thursday | #Throwbackthursday

Here’s an oldie for #throwbackthursday! How many of you remember the activity center at West Jackson Baptist Church? I know I do! I loved skating there 😊 This was a Halloween party they held out on the skating rink floor. I remember that cowboy suit I was wearing in this picture too! It was my favorite ❤️ Roy Rogers, eat your heart out. 

I LOVED my cowboy get-up! This was 1972 or so at West Jackson Baptist Activity Center. They turned the skating rink into a Halloween Party. I can’t remember that young lady’s name, but like all ladies, she loves a cowboy 🤠 😂

I have grown to LOVE Throwback Thursday 😊 Y’all have a great day!

Throwback Thursday | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Here’s a #throwbackthursday picture that’s near and dear to my heart ❤️ My son (also my youngest uniformed employee 😊). He Loved flowers as a child! And he still does… We got this picture of him in a large grouping of Coneflowers. They are still one of his favorites. 

My boy taught me a LOT about “Stopping to smell the roses”… Cone flowers in this case 😊 I came across this one and had to use it for today’s Throwback Thursday Picture ❤️

Throwback Thursday is always a good day! I hope you enjoy yours!
