Polly's Pick :
Patio Egg

The Patio Egg Mosquito Deterrent Diffuser is back in stock! The Deet- free formula used in the egg smells great and will keep the mosquitos away for up to four months! With no batteries or flame, the Patio Egg is the perfect defense for those of us who are so sweet the pesky little nuisances flock to us!
Sulfur for Snakes


Ask Sally! She's been bit by a copperhead twice so far this year! Though the debate continues as to the true effectiveness of sulfur as a snake repellent, I would challenge those who doubt its use as a slithering reptilian repellant to speak to those who've used it for years.  Sulfur has been used to deter snakes from getting too close to those who don't care for the creature for generations ...

Skid Steer Rental


You may have see a shiny yellow skid steer in our parking lot. We purchased a 2015 Gehl 87 hp skid steer and have it available for rental. In addition, we also have an 8in and 12in auger. Call us at 972-635-7878 for rental pricing and scheduling. 
 

We can tell by the attendance and questions asked at the Chicken Workshop last month, that lots of folks are interested in raising chickens. We strive as best possible to provide you with everything you need to raise a healthy flock. Thank you to our speakers Jesse Huth with Huth Avian and Bob Wucher with Purina Mills, and especially to all that spent the evening with us. Because we've sold out over 1000 chicks thus far, we have another large chick order arriving at the store on Friday, May 6. Please contact the store for a list of breeds and to reserve yours.

Join us for a Garden Workshop on Thursday, April 21 at 6:30pm AND make sure you mark your calendar for Thursday, May 26, 6:30pm for a Horse Owner's Workshop with speaker Scott Campbell, Equine Specialist from Purina Animal Nutrition. Read more about both below.

Advice from an Aggie: Christie Brinkley, Farrah Fawcett or Julie from The Love Boat?

Seeing how I like to air my confessions via my monthly blog, please be forewarned this month is no different. Please, take a seat, hold on to something.  I need to share something that has been a part of me since I was in junior high.  And as you prepare yourself for some riveting new, believe you me, I am preparing myself for the onslaught of comments both in what I am about to share and the later ramifications for today.  I... I... I really had a huge crush on Julie from ABC's The Love Boat. Please stop. Before you read any further take a deep breath, breathe. Please do not be so devastated that you don't read any further.  Yes, while my brothers were both enamored by Christie Brinkley and Farrah Fawcett, I was stuck on a ...

Bad News: Bugs, Weeds, Algae
 
I am sure everyone has heard their share of "good news and bad news" teaser.  The statement always seems to be followed by the question, "What would you like to hear first?".  This time you don't get a choice as to what comes first, the good news!  Yep, lakes and ponds are full, the lines to stock those ponds with fish are long, grass is green, and our drought seems years ago.  Yes, the rainfall of last year and this spring thus far is refreshing and nice to have.  But, there is not so much good news in all that rain.  Sorry.  According to the much more knowledgeable folks ...
