Friday Radio Report…

Awesome day today with the 180 Crew! Special guests Lori Nunnery & LoLo we’re in the studio talking about local events.

Check this one out!

Support RIFA and come hear some great music! Next Friday the 14th.!

https://www.facebook.com/events/312434029511387/?ti=icl

– We talked about fall & winter garden chores, LOTS to do outside!

  •  Cleaning up the landscape
  • trimming trees
  • planting shrubs, trees & Bulbs
  • Leaf cleanup
  • composting!
  • Whitewashing trees – why? To protect the trunk from sun & insects.

– We also talked about Christmas traditions & gifts, etc. including one of our Biggies at the nursery – The Christmas Pond Package! What is that? Well it’s a very special gift indeed. You take a custom made gift box home to put under the tree 🌲 In the box is a video showing you what to expect from your new purchase  – A hand made card accompanies the gift box. Then the recipient calls me and we set up a Personal Design Consultation and design your new water feature, then the crew from Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio comes out and builds your new Custom Water Feature. Call Carters Nursery today for more details – 731-424-2206.

Today is my birthday 🎂 Thanks for all the birthday wishes!

Basking in my Birthday happiness 😊

There’s a chance of snow over the weekend! But, the good kind! 😊 No accumulation is expected! So we get the beauty but not the bad roads… Enjoy

Great show today! Thanks & Merry Christmas! 🎄 🎅🏻

Leaves are coming down! Get your mulching blades on your mower ready!

The mulching blades have numerous teeth across the top side of the blade so as the grass is cut, the top of the mower blade then shreds the clippings vs standard mower blades which are designed to push the clippings outward into a collection bag.                                                  We are going to extend “Fishy Friday’s” the month of November!
