August Tips and Happenings....

- Fish Day is September 10, 10:30-11:30 a.m. Please call Hertzlers (598-4021) with your orders. You must be here during the designated hour as we do not hold fish.
- Sale on Stragety....month of August...$13.99
- We now have freshly harvested local honey in stock.
- We are sold out of laying hens until the end of September. Right now the supply is not meeting the demand. You may want to call and get your name on a list and we will call you when they come in. They are $7.75 each.
- This is now summer maintenance and harvesting time in the garden. Nothing beats a fresh tomato sandwich, or cucumber salad.
- If you need to use chemicals for bug control, use a liquid versus a powder. If you spray the liquid in the evening when the bees are not active, it will dry before they land on the plant and will not harm the bees. The powder they take back to the hive.
- NEW ITEM..... We have Rescue Trapstiks for biting flies and also carpenter bees. $8.99 each.
- Remember to use Hertzler's Finest Beef for all you summer grilling and cooking adventures this summer! The flavor of our natural, dry-aged beef can not be beat!
- Don't forget to feed your roses all summer long. I use Bayer All-in-One Rose and Flower Care every six weeks. It is a fungicide, insecticide and fertilizer all in one. My roses are gorgeous right now, blooming profusely. They have enjoyed the cooler nights and less humid weather.
