Saturday Morning | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Saturday morning is the perfect time to get your garden and landscape ready for Fall! Cutting back plants and composting, planting Fall Color like Pansies, decorating for Fall with Straw Bales and Pumpkins 🎃 

Don’t let the change of seasons make you sick! Get ahead of things and get your yard work and decorations done now.

I say it’s best to start early and get it done. Time goes by so fast! Next Thursday is the 1st day of October! The week after that is Christmas 🎄 🤩 

Start a compost pile! Garden refuse and kitchen scraps, coffee grounds and more can go in to it and the free compost that you have next Spring is priceless! You can thank me later 😊

This is the perfect time to start composting!

🏈 And don’t forget football! I’m still an old school Tennessee fan! ie; An optimist 😊

It’s been a while now since we’ve had a great team in Knoxville, TN! We just keep waiting and waiting and waiting… Happy Fall 🍁

We are open today until 2pm. Come by and see us!

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!
