Blogging Milestones | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I like to set goals and meet them! I also like to mark Milestones… Today is the 600th day that I have turned out a daily blog! Whew! It sure doesn’t seem like it’s been that long… Time flies! And – Yes, I have been having Fun! 😊

When I committed to a daily Blog it was a HUGE step! And at first it was a real challenge, but it seems to get easier and more fun the longer I keep the commitment 😊

As many of you know, I started blogging in 2008, but not daily… more weekly and monthly, AND I haven’t missed a month since 2008! But, It wasn’t until January 1st 2018 that I made the decision to blog daily. Now, it’s just part of what I do… And, my blog has developed some daily themes that I hope you like…

Mondays are a video of a stream and/or Waterfall, usually one that we  built, and it’s titled “Monday Morning Moment of Zen”…

Tuesdays and Thursdays are my ‘freelance days’… lately I have been doing my Blog or Vlog On Outdoor Living, focusing on Outdoor Lifestyle Areas (Spaces, patios, outdoor kitchens,outdoor rooms, etc.).

Wednesday (Hump Day) Is ALL about Waterfalls! And – KOI!

Fridays I do a Local Talk Radio Show (The ‘180’ with Dan Reaves & Sea Bass) and I follow the show up with a Blog about what was covered. I call it – The “Friday Radio Report”.

Saturdays I try to Blog about the my Nursery. What’s HOT, Events that are happening and, what is going on in & around the garden.

Sundays Blog is called “Sunday Reflections…” Sunday is a day of rest, reflection and time with my family. I try to share a inspirational thought, poem or story.

I want to say THANK YOU to everyone who has taken the time to read my Blogs or watch my Vlogs! Especially to everyone who has “Followed” my Blog! I have gotten many new Followers each & every month this year! Thanks! & WOW! Plus – I have tried to make it easy and painless to follow my blog. I would like to ask you to PLEASE help me introduce my daily Blog to others by sharing my blog with your friends and family on your Facebook page or other social networks.

The weekly radio show Im involved with on Fridays has given me LOTS of ideas for my blog too! I have received LOTS of feedback from the show! Emails, comments, likes, etc, etc. Thank you!

Everything is flourishing in the Landscape! The temps are heating up so keep an eye on your gardens and get ready to do some watering!

  •  This is also the time trim back our annuals as needed to lighten them up a bit and I fertilize them to promote fresh new growth and blooms.
  • Have You fertilized your Bermuda grass and Zoysia Grass lawns? This is a great time to do so!
  • Stop fertilizing Crepe Myrtles now. New growth needs time to harden off before fall/winter…
  • Fertilize your Water Lilies & Lotus for better blooms!

Don’t miss our next event- Waterfalls in your Life! Here’s more info –
