Now is the Time,
Kerby's is the Place

November 25, 2014   

 
Come check out the unique
houseplants just in at Kerby's.

What are you thankful for this year? Thanksgiving is such a wonderful part of the holiday season. It is a time to reflect on what's really important in life. At Kerby's we are of course thankful for family and friends, for food on our tables (and in our gardens), and we are also thankful for you, our customers. Thank you for letting Kerby's make your gardens beautiful. Without your passion for flowers, fruits and fun in the garden, Kerby's wouldn't be here. So from the entire Kerby's Nursery family, thank you. We hope that you have a safe and happy Thanksgiving.

Kerby's will be closing at 1pm on Wednesday the 26th and will of course be closed on Thursday. On Friday, we'll be open at 9am for holiday fun in the garden. So when you are tired of the crowds at the mall, come on out to see the beautiful Christmas plants.
 


Happy Thanksgiving,
The Kerby's Nursery Family

The Thankful Gardener

What makes you thankful in the garden? There really are so many things. We work in the garden, we tend the soil, pull the weeds, water the plants, but really, there is an awful lot that happens in the garden that is beyond our control. Below is our list of things we are thankful for as gardeners.


The Sun - Without the sun, things just wouldn't grow. The sun rises and sets predictably each day, bringing bright light to our plants and allowing veggies and flowers to flourish. By summer, we may be tired of its heat, but without it a garden just wouldn't be possible.


The Rain - As with the sun, without rain plants would struggle. We try our best to water our plants, but without help from the rain, it would be overwhelming. Plus there is something in the rain that just seems to make plants grow.

Great Harvests - Add sweat, sun and rain and you end up with wonderful harvests from fruit trees as well as veggie and herb gardens. This week we harvested more mustards, kale and a few tomatoes. It really is a miracle that with a little sun and rain, small plants grow into large plants and produce something that we can eat, full of great nutrients and vitamins. Definitely something to be thankful for.

Bugs - Okay, sometimes bugs are a pain, but we wouldn't have food without bees, and what would the world be without beautiful butterflies fluttering around our gardens.

Relaxation - You can garden to put food on the table and you can garden to create a beautiful landscape, but most of us probably garden because we love doing something. Getting our hands dirty and making something beautiful out of a patch of dirt and weeds. This time in the dirt is great for unwinding from the stress of everyday life and for refreshing the soul. So whatever your purpose in gardening, there is so much to be thankful for.
