Today was our monthly Local Business Roundtable, and I supply the doughnuts as part of the breakfast meeting. As I stopped by my favorite local bakery, Kreger’s Bakery and Deli, I see the endorsement to just how good the doughnuts really are. And I agree, the doughnuts really are that good.

If you’ve got animals digging in your lawn, Turf MDs can apply an insect control regimen that will knock out the grubs in as little as 24 hours. Call Turf MD’s today for an appointment.

Hsu Growing Supply

Speaking of lawns, Hsu Leaf Compost makes an excellent top dressing for your lawn. Topdressing a lawn is the process of adding a thin layer of material over the lawn. Typically 1/4 inch – 1/2 inch of compost or other soil amendment is spread across the lawn with shovels, in a throwing action. The material can be worked into the thatch area by raking, washed in with rain or sprinklers, or allowed to settle on its own. Topdressing regularly can smooth out bumps caused by worm castings and encourages a dense, lush lawn. Topdressing reduces lawn stresses, helps keep thatch under control and acts as a long term natural fertilizer. Adding organic matter to a lawn by topdressing with compost is the most beneficial cultural practice lawn care has to offer. Hsu Leaf Compost is available at better garden centers all over the region.

Jay’s Auto Repair

Does your car’s air conditioner smell like dirty socks when you turn it on? That’s mold growing in the A/C system. Before you turn off your car, shut off the A/C and let the interior fan run for a few minutes to dry out the evaporator. You can also spray Lysol into the outside vent where your A/C gets fresh air (with the fan running at high speed). Or have you A/C system professionally cleaned by a trusted mechanic. This month Jay’s Auto Repair is offering free A/C check. Give Jay’s Auto Repair a call and stop by for a complimentary inspection of your air conditioning system.
