Now is the Time,
Kerby's is the Place

November 27, 2013   

Abby and Maddy stopped by to check on the Christmas plants arriving at Kerby's.

What are you thankful for this year? My two little girls top my list of things I'm thankful for. This week, they stopped by the nursery to check on the Christmas plants that were arriving. I thought maybe I could get Abby to help unpack poinsettias, but she seemed happier playing with the gravel. Their smiles make me want to get up every morning and do something to make it a better day. And there are just so many other things to be thankful for: food on our tables, clothes on our backs and shelter over our heads. At Kerby's Nursery, we are especially thankful to each and every one of our customers. You can choose to spend your time in many ways, and we're glad that you choose to spend some of your time with us. From our family to yours, we hope that you have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday, enjoying it with family and friends. We'll be closing early on Wednesday (at 1 p.m.) to spend a little extra time with our families, and we'll re-open Friday morning at 9 a.m.. If you want to avoid the crowds at the mall, come join us at Kerby's for a peaceful stroll and beautiful Christmas plants. 

Happy Thanksgiving,
The Kerby's Nursery Family

The pitcher plant is such a cool plant. It grows long pitchers that hang below the plant and it uses them to catch insects for food and nutrients. They are lovely in hanging baskets and definitely a unique addition to a plant collection.

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.
