Two weeks ago I said I’d blog about dog urine damage and it’s treatment for turf. Lucky me! Dr’s. Foster and Smith have already covered the subject in a very well written article. I’m gonna take this as a sign that I get to opt-out of writing my own blog post on the subject today. I’ve got plenty of other work to do anyway. The months of summer, running my landscape improvements and nursery businesses, are beyond busy right now. I’m typically up at 5am, dodging shaving bumps in my bathroom mirror, and done with my days work around 8 pm, 5 days a week. I’m a pretty tired guy. I usually spend open weekends working in my own yard and planning the week to come.
For the past year I’ve managed 2 small nurseries, one at Churchill Hardware and another at Under the Arbor. It’s been a great learning experience in the retail nursery business. I’ve got even more respect for the nursery industry considering the itty bitty profit margins and the tremendous amount of love and work that goes into growing, cultivating and caring for container plants. My intention and focus has been on growing and selling edible, and ornamental, plant materials. Monrovia in essence started me down this road.
We did some creative works together and I was compensated with their beautiful abundant nursery stock.
It’s been a fun, busy and scrambling-to-try-and-keep-up, kinda year. Thanks to all who read and share my blog post. If you know me, you know that it’s a big deal for me to consistently, and weekly, deliver on this literary commitment. A huge thanks to my entire creative and editing team that sticks with me and assists the weekly blogging process. My author and writer Jason Britt, contributing writer Marie Blackstock, proofing/editor Karen Cook, proofer and editor Tiffanie Hassan. It takes a village to do just about anything.
My weekly blog, which ranges on sustainability, philosophy, gardening and whatever else I choose to share, has become some what of a weekly therapy for me. Writing was something I dreamed about for years. I was confused at just what it was that I wanted to write about so I simply decided to keep it open to whatever I was inspired to share. When Aimee Steckowski of Anchored Design created this site, we talked about also creating a blog site since this is another one of her specialties. If you, or anyone else that you know, is interested in writing, blogging and sharing their own thoughts, information and interests with the rest of the world, I suggest you consult with Aimee and Melody of Anchored Design. They’re professional, reasonably priced and extremely comprehensive with the online and creative services they offer.
So that’s how it goes when we start off talking about dogs urinating on lawns and then transition to a kudos for my web team. You can’t get this kind of stuff anywhere else people. Read the article I mentioned earlier for insight into how dog urine damages your lawn. Click the links of my team, mentioned above, and see how they can add value to your life. They are all phenomenal at what they do… and they won’t urinate on your lawn. Well they might on mine now because of that last dig, I better go! Tuesday called and she has several things for me to do today. Thanks for sharing and caring!
