Happy Thanksgiving!

I wanted to take a minute and wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! I’m already busy cooking and preparing my part in what will be a HUGE Thanksgiving spread for our family and friends and I am looking forward to seeing everyone and sitting down and catching up a bit. For our part of the meal I’m fixing a bourbon glazed ham, a smoked turkey breast & “twice baked, mashed potatoes! Jo stayed up late baking old fashioned pecan & French coconut pie’s, both my grandmas recipe 😉 Most everyone else is fixing a thing or two also (green beans, casseroles, rolls, cranberry’s, deviled eggs, dressing with giblet gravy, a big relish tray, more cakes and pies, etc…

A few pictures of Thanksgivings past. Always lots of great food and wonderful people 😍

Following the meal of course is Football, and naps with your belt unbuckled and the top button on yours pants loose, or just gone…  I’m going to try to pace myself 😇

Like I said, have a LOT to be thankful for!!! Family, good friends, a warm home, a huge feast & so much more! Blessed!

Happy Thanksgiving to you & yours🦃🏈❤️

Hump Day Koi Fix – It’s Getting COLD! Is It Time To Stop Feeding Your Koi? | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

It happens every year… The Fall color comes and goes in quick succession  and the long, cold nights force us to discontinue feeding our Finned friends for the season…

We have been feeding Cool Temp Koi Food at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio for a while now, but it’s time to put it up till Spring… | Jackson, TN

Check your thermometer to confirm your water temp., ours has been at 50 deg. F/- for over a week now… Time to stop feeding – for their health! Feeding after the temps drop below that 50 degree threshold is very dangerous for your Koi’s health. Their metabolism slows to a crawl & they just can’t digest fish food…

Every Pond should have a floating Pond thermometer. Our finned friends are cold blooded & water temperature is very important when it comes to seasonal feeding times. You can pick one up at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio if your in need. | Jackson, TN

It’s always sad when we have to end ‘Feeding Time’… But, it’s part of keeping your fish healthy. Enjoy the Holiday Season, because before we know it, Spring will be here again and ‘Feeding Time’ will be back on the daily agenda. 😊

Happy Pondering & Happy Thanksgiving 🦃

Beautiful, Early Snow ❄️ A Blessing For The Gardener | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Our first snow ❄️ came a bit early this year! Pre-Thanksgiving snow is a rareity in the South for sure 😊 But don’t let it get you down! I try to enjoy the blessings and the opportunity’s as they come!

A snowy landscape is Beautiful! Get out and😊

Snow is very beneficial for our gardens too!  Just a few things that snow does –

  •  Snow brings nutrients to the soil! (Free Fertilizer!) – Nitrogen, phosphorus, sulphur & more are captured in the snowfall and are then slowly released into the soil as it melts.
  • Snow ❄️ is a wonderful blanket that insulates and protects the soil and many plants from freezing damage.
  • Snow helps to recharge our groundwater!
  • Snow gives US a break from the garden too😇

Snowy weather brings the birds to your feeders! They come all day to eat, to get a drink and even bathe. I LOVE to photograph birds in our landscape and at our feeders. | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Enjoy this beautiful day while it lasts! We got an early taste of winter and for many of us, a day off 😉
Happy Pondering!
