Happy Independence Day! 🇺🇸 God Bless America! 🙏🏻

Happy Independence Day! Happy Birthday America! 🇺🇸 I am proud to be an American! And, I am Thankful for all the hard work and sacrifice that has been made by so many down through the years to keep us safe and FREE! There is not another country like ours in the world! & I still believe that the American people remain willing to give all to keep it 🇺🇸

Happy Birthday America! “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

“Freedom’s natal day is here.
Fire the guns and shout for freedom,
See the flag above unfurled!
Hail the stars and stripes forever,
Dearest flag in all the world.”

Monday Morning Moment Of Zen

I usually post a Waterfall or nature shot for my Moment of Zen, but I thought this was a good offering as well. Hundreds And hundreds of fellow Americans celebrating our country together! Not 1 fight or argument did I see or hear of! I took this short video from the boat I was on, as you see LOTS of others came in their boats as well. 
Check it out 👇🏻



It was a great to see so many people getting along and cheering for our country! We need more of this ❤️

Thanks, and have a great day!

Respectably Lazy…

Ok, I’ll admit it, I enjoy a good nap! Especially on a HOT Summer afternoon 😎 My wife asked me – What is the perfect nap 😴? Well, if I had to describe it… The perfect nap… “A Shady spot, laying in a nice hammock with the sound of a waterfall in the background and a light breeze blowing! Shang-ra-la!

Enjoying a good nap on a day off doesn’t make you lazy! I’d like to think it shows that you know how to truly enjoy the finer things! The little things that make life good 😊 Stop and smell those roses 🌹 And then, string up your Hammock & take a ‘Respectable nap’! You deserve it.

“Deep summer is when laziness finds respectability.”

Have a great weekend!

Friday Radio Report | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

FUN show today with the “180 Crew” – Dan Reaves and Sea Bass! It’s HOT outside and that was a topic of conversation for sure! Add in the fact it’s also been WET and stormy makes for interesting things in the garden! Including lots of insects, fungal problems, leeching of nutrients from excessive rain, WEEDS! Etc., Etc…

  • One lady in particular is having problems with their Zucchini rotting on the vine. I suggested that it’s probably blossom end rot, caused by calcium deficiency. The soil needs lime to be added. It’s not an instant fix to add lime to the soil, but it will help for the future. There are calcium rich foliage sprays that will help too.
  • Another caller was asking about a hardy palm for our area – The most popular and hardy Palm I have found for our area is a Windmill Palm. They really add a tropical feel and survive well in our area. Call me for specifics or pricing.
  • Another great question was about making Pesto – do I have any advice? I lOVE pesto! And, yes I will give you my opinion. To me the biggie is FRESH, High Quality Ingredients! I also suggested trying an alternative to Pine Nuts… Pistachios! Try it and tell me what you think! Ingredients – 4 cups fresh basil leaves. 1/2 cup shelled, roasted pistachios, 1/2 cup FRESHLY grated Parmesan cheese, 3-5 cloves of garlic, fresh squeezed lemon juice – 1 TBS., 1/2-3/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Salt, Pepper and I add 1 dried cayenne pepper! DO NOT – Slap your Momma! Although you may want to after you taste this Pesto! YUM!
  • Our new “Roundabout” at Deddrick and Highland St. is still very controversial! I’ll be glad when it’s built and traffic is flowing well again 🙂
  • Night Fishing – Yes or No? I say YES!

    Summer is HERE! Get out and ENJOY!

    Next week is a BIGGIE! Sunday, the 1st. of July marks the half-way point of the year! WOW! Time flies…

    AND – Wednesday is the 4th of July! Independence Day! Fireworks and FUN! God Bless America!

    Have a safe and happy 4th. of JULY! God Bless America!

 

Y’all have a great weekend!

PS: Starting next Friday I will be on 2 hours each Friday instead of only 1! TWICE the FUN! Give me a call 🙂
