Adieu to Summer 2009

Autumn is upon us…

In the business I’m in, weather is always front and center. You cannot get around it. Often times it can be rather cruel, that has not been the case this summer. To say the summer of ’09 has been kind to us all is an understatement. I have never seen such a summer. It has rarely been in the 90’s and every time it begins to get dry, we get rain (look out the window). For people like us it has been heaven sent. I suspect it is much the same for you.

The rain does have a downside, if you are trying to do roof work. I am trying to do roof work. Another plea to “Please excuse our mess” is in order. Despite our best efforts, progress has been slowed. We have a lot of water running into places we thought we would have a roof on a couple of weeks ago. You might want to bring an umbrella along this weekend.

We want to extend our thanks for making the summer of 2009 a very productive time for us. As I have already alluded to, we are busily reinvesting into our facilities to make them better than ever. We want to say “thank you” to our BatesRewards members by having an “End of Summer 25% off Everything” sale Saturday the 19th and Sunday the 20th of September. Thank you again for allowing us the privilege of serving your horticultural needs.

Remember, we have all the fall goodies, including: cool weather veggies, mums, kale, cabbage, pansies, dianthus and much more.

I also want to encourage you to support Greenways for Nashville. They are having their annual “Dinner on the Bridge” on October 1st. This is the third year of this event, it is always a wonderful evening. Check out Greenways for Nashville’s website, www.greenwaysfornashville.org for complete details.

Don’t let a little rain dampen your parade, come on out to see us this weekend; get the quality expertise from our friendly staff you have come to expect. 25% off everything* Saturday and Sunday!

David Bates

p.s. Don’t forget your umbrella!
