So… I was working in my yard, trying to finish off a couple of last second landscape projects when “IT” hit…the “Cold Front”!
You know what I’m talking about…the cold front that hit us the day before Veteran’s Day. It was something else, wasn’t it? Funny, everybody’s been talking about it like it was the moon landing. Where were you when it happened? Did you see it? Did you hear it? Did you smell it? Everyone’s had a story!
It was quite an experience though! One minute it was calm and beautiful, and then…just like someone flipped a switch, the winds picked up and the temperature went down. And it just kept going down! Now we’ve even had snow. The weather certainly does keep us on our toes!
Needless to say, the arrival of cold weather has pushed us into winter mode around here and into it a little sooner than expected. We rushed to get all our plants under cover and finished just in the nick of time. Our once full and beautiful sales yard now looks sad and empty. Oh, our plants are still here, we’ve just tucked them into our overwintering houses to keep them safe from the winter temps . Once it warms back up, if you need some trees or shrubs to finish some fall projects, we can still get you fixed up.
If you didn’t get all your projects wrapped up, there’s still time. There’s still time to finish up some late season planting, there’s still time to do your fall fertilizing and still time to make sure you have everything ready for the winter. But I wouldn’t put it off too much longer. One of these days it’s going to get cold and stay cold!
As this year’s growing season winds down, I want to say Thank You! Thanks for coming out to see us and thanks for making past season such a good one. It’s been a great year and it’s all because of you. We sincerely appreciate your business!
I hope you have a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving!
