Propane News at Marshall County Co-Op

Propane News at Marshall County Co-Op

SO much is going on with the Marshall County Co-op.  The big news is, of course, Propane related.  After all, Propane is the Co-op’s main lifeline! They just opened up a satellite propane plant in New Martinsville!  One of the reasons a propane plant was put there is because of the growth opportunity in that area and to be able to better serve Wetzel and Tyler Counties. It also cuts their costs and time involved of transporting propane from Moundsville to those areas.  This move will now ensure the residents of Wetzel and Tyler Counties complete access to propane without...

The Dog Days of Summer

The Dog Days of Summer

Can you believe it is August?  Where has this year gone?  Time just seems to fly by anymore.  The positive part?  Football season is rapidly approaching!! And hopefully bringing with it cooler days and nights. But for now, it is still Sweaty, Sunshiny and Hot! And speaking of positive parts, your garden should be in full bounty mode by now. Your zucchinis, tomatoes and cucumbers are plotting a take-over of the rest of your garden plants, and your peppers and squash are enthusiastically growing closer and closer to each other.  Some plants suddenly may appear tired and a bit sunburnt....

July is Summer!

July is Summer!

July!  It’s the month for full-swing summer activities! It is also the month that your garden is producing all the delicious produce that you carefully planted a few months back.   People are taking vacations and just having a good time.  It is also the month that we celebrate our great nation’s independence!  For those of you who have a garden and purchased flowers, it is a time to do some basic upkeep.  Now is the time to remove the faded blooms from your spring perennials flowers.  When you do this, you make your plants look better and you prevent them...

April is Upon Us

April is Upon Us

It’s hard to believe that April is upon us.  Out of all the months of the year, April seems like it is the “in-between” month.  By that I mean its officially “spring”, but the weather still is rainy, wet, and kind of depressing and it’s not quite “summer” yet.  You know what I mean.  But April really is a great month and there are lots of reason why April shines!!  We get to celebrate warmer weather, longer days, and we get to celebrate Easter!  It’s also the first full month of Spring and most people (besides me) are filled with...

Spring is Coming this Month

Spring is Coming this Month

The big event is coming!!!  The big event is coming!  What big event am I talking about?  SPRING.  The word most people have been talking about and waiting for since Winter took over December 21st, 2021.  After being brutalized by cold temperatures, lots of snow and record-breaking ice storms, Spring is a welcome relief to all of us.   The thought of warmer, bearable temperatures along with being able to once again have a life outside of your home, brings joy to most people.  The thought of returning your outdoor furniture to their spring/summer homes brings smiles to our faces.  The...

I Cannot Tell a Lie

I Cannot Tell a Lie

During the month of February, we celebrate Presidents Day (what the holiday is referred to,  however; the federal holiday is officially called “Washington’s Birthday”).  I wanted to focus on a legend that I always heard growing up about George Washington. The legend is that George Washington chopped down a cherry tree when he was just 6 years old.  When his dad confronted him about it, he supposedly said “I cannot tell a lie.  I did it with my hatchet.”  Well, the jokes on us, since Washington didn’t say this at all.  This tale was made up by Parson Mason Weems...

The New Year begins…..

The New Year begins…..

Happy New Year to all!  Everyone from the Marshall County Co-Op is geared up for the new year.  It’s time for a fresh, new start and we are excited. So, how do you plan on making 2022 better than 2021?  Some people will make “resolutions” that are extreme, such as losing a lot of weight in a short period of time or making unrealistic goals to attend the gym 7 days a week, quitting smoking or saving money. Why not try something new for the New Year? How about making some goals for your annual summer garden?  I know, I...

New Seasonal Items

New Seasonal Items

The Marshall County Co-op amazes me.  When I think of the Co-op, I automatically think of plants, flowers, propane, and farming products.  To me, that’s what they have and they have the best of it.  Especially their Propane plans.  But I tell you what, if you ever get a chance, you should take a tour of the Marshall County Co-op. With each season, you’ll find new and seasonal related items at this magical place.    Just recently I decided to take a tour just to see all it has to offer.  I love unique and different items that you don’t find...

Turning on the Heat!!

Turning on the Heat!!

It’s that time of the year again when it’s time to turn on the heat!  The air conditioner that worked so hard over this past summer can finally take a well-deserved rest and your furnace can now take over to keep you warm for the next several months.  If you use propane as your heat source, we want you to know that here at the Southern States Marshall County Co-op, we are here for you.   Southern States is one of the top 10 suppliers of propane gas in the country and is the local, smart, reliable source for all your propane needs.  ...

The Three P’s

The Three P’s

I’d like to talk a little today about three very important items that the Marshall County Co-op is especially proud to offer to their local consumers.  The first P is :  PROPANE It’s October, which means the days of air conditioning and sweltering heat and humidity are over.  Making their annual comeback are sweaters, hoodies and sweatshirts.  And sooner than later, coats.  Wood burners and furnaces are being turned on.  Which means it’s Propane time.  Yes, propane is used year-round in campers, to fuel your grill, to heat your water and so much more, but now we need to focus...
