Carter's Water Garden

Sunday Reflections…

All I can say is ”What a beautiful morning”! I think every bird in the world is singing the song of Spring! Ive been up and out since early… Coffee ☕️ ✔️ Breakfast ✔️ Watering ✔️ … We have moved pottery a bit and potted some things up as well. Its mid-morning break time, so I thought I would write this little blog and fix some homemade Lemonade 🍋 Nothing tastes as good as a fresh glass of sweet lemonade on a spring morning.

I just Love Spring!

“It’s lemonade in a cardboard cup between the legs of a freshly tanned, sunglass wearing, brown eyed girl. It’s a white Jeep, blaring Enrique loud.

It’s the sweat beneath the dark curls. It’s the country song that brings tears to your eyes. It’s the lessons learned, the mistakes made. It’s the future ahead, bright and beautiful. It’s the laughter, memories. It’s the good things in life. 

It’s Spring.

I’ll see y’all in the house about dark:30…

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

GREAT show today with Dan & Sea Bass – “The 180 Crew”! But I almost had to take a boat! Rain Rain! WOW!

We got LOTS of calls today! We talked about everything from –

  • The days are getting LONGER as we approach the Summer Solstice (the longest day of the year)!
  • How can I grow a Lemon Tree? Go with a Meyers Lemon, use a quality, well drained potting mix and fertilize with a citrus fertilizer (it will have need trace elements and micro nutrients). Place where it will get plenty of sun and bring it in before frost this Fall!
  • How to trellis grapes – more info on an upcoming blog!
  • HOW to fix green water in my pond. In this case I think it’s lack of biological filtration. The caller is coming in to the nursery and we will help them find a balance.
  • We talked a lot about Rock – N – Dough’s Brunch – & the main questions was – “To brunch or not to brunch”? 🙂
  • Can I use MSMA for my lawn weeds now? YES!
  • When is the Parade of Ponds? Saturday, June 23rd.! 9am – 4pm. THEN we have an after party at the nursery from 8-10PM (The Moonlight Luau)!
