Discover the Fun of Gardening
The Kerby's E-Newsletter for February 16, 2017   

Joey as a young farmer, proud of his sweet potato.

Do you ever have a memory in mind and you are sure it happened, but you can't find the proof? I've always remembered this giant sweet potato from a garden, years ago.  I started to think it was just my imagination, but then I found the picture. (Thanks mom for scanning all of our old slides!)  And that potato is just about the size of my head! Both Kim and I have been outside in the garden since we were little tots. And we've gardened with so many people: grandparents, aunts, uncles and parents. We're trying to pass the same love of the garden on to our kids and we hope they'll have some great garden memories that they want to look back on, many years in the future.

And what a great time to make garden memories, because it is spring. Oh, I know it's not quite spring on the calendar, but as Floridians, we know that the whole "season" thing is just a myth. With as warm as it's been, plants are blooming and flushing a little early. So take advantage of the early season and get your gardens growing. And if you really want to kick start your garden, come out to the Veggie Gardening Workshop this Saturday at 10AM. We'll teach you the best ways to Grow Fresh and Grow Healthy, right in your own backyard.



Happy Gardening,
The Kerby's Nursery Family
