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

Friday’s are always a hit with the 180’ Crew! I’m back from a short plant/nursery tour, the weather is fixing to get tricky & we are closing in on the Super Bowl! WOW! 2019 is taking off like a bullet!

On a sad note, my favorite local restaurant is closing down after 54 years in Jackson… Yes, I’m talking about Baudo’s 😢

I’ve been eating here my entire life! I asked my wife to marry me here… We come here for every Anniversary (25 & counting), and have eaten here as often as possible. I would like to thank the Baudo family for all the great food and for all the memories! You will be missed ❤️

Our great friend & 180’ Producer Sea Bass is under the weather today, so we felt a YUGE void today in the studio… Get well soon my friend!

LOTS of calls & texts today –

  • All this wind had covered my lawn with leaves, can I let them be OR should I mulch them? If it on established lawn – Mulch em’!
  • How long before nurseries start seeds for Spring? Many are starting seeds right now! Cindy Springer is!
  • Can I plant Crepe Myrtles now? Yes! This is a Great time to plant! Trees & shrubs. Just do it!
  • My sons birthday is this weekend! Happy Birthday Jacob!!! ❤️
  • We are facing some possible Bad Winter Weather this weekend! How are you setting on Milk & Bread 🥖???

    We might see some snow and ice this weekend – You know the drill 😇

The Blacksmith is a great Local Restaurant!

The Sonic “Blast from the Past” Trivia question was – What is the ‘last frost date’ for Jackson Tn  according to the Farmers Almanac? – Answer – April 9th.! Yeah!!! Come on Soring!
