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...

Fruits, Vegetables, Plants, and BUGS

Fruits, Vegetables, Plants, and BUGS

As we enter July, summer is in full swing!  July is probably one of my favorite times of the year, minus the heat that is.  Unless I am floating in a pool, ocean or the lake, I am not a big fan of heat.  Give me nice, 70–75-degree days anytime.  But of course, the heat is necessary, especially if you are a farmer or a gardener.  The heat helps your vegetables and fruits flourish.  Farmers Markets are in full swing, overflowing with summers abundance of crops!!!  Eating fresh grown veggies and fruits is another one of the reasons I love...

It’s finally April.  Celebrate!!  This usually means warmer weather is ahead, but you never know when old man winter will once again roar his ugly head.  But basically, the calendar says it’s spring! Time for renewals of your soul and your seasonal plantings.

Hope is on the Way

Hope is on the Way

Grey, dark days.  Cold temperatures, snowy conditions and ICE!  Lots of Ice! Just a typical day that we had most of February!  And with these weather conditions comes the emotional ups and downs that only those long winter days can bring. It is just darn right depressing…. BUT WAIT! Hope is on the way.  Yes, “HOPE”; also known as “March,” is here!!  Now March may also bring some winter like weather conditions, but inside our heads we know that spring is near.  Really near.  March 20th to be exact.  It’s time to plant trees, time to plant your flowers and...

All About Love

All About Love

Welcome to February 2021.  So far, it’s been rough.  So, with this month’s blog, I wanted to talk all about love.  After all, Valentine’s day is coming up and everyone knows the pressure is on to show that special person some love.  And love, right now, is so much better than the hate that seems to be consuming this country.  So…. let’s talk love.  First of all, I love the Marshall County Co-Op.  Most people I know visit the Co-Op each spring to purchase their vegetable plants, flowers and other shrubbery and more.  But did you realize that the Co-op...

2021…A New Approach to Resolutions!

2021…A New Approach to Resolutions!

Well folks, it’s finally 2021.  We made it.  This past year has probably been the worst year that most of you have ever experienced.  I know it’s been mine.  Businesses have had to close down, leaving both the owners and employees suffering.  Some businesses could re-open eventually, but some have had to shut their doors completely.  People have struggled with isolation which eventually can lead to depression, alcohol, drug addiction and who knows what else.  Birthday and anniversary celebrations ceased, and weddings got postponed.  No longer were you allowed to visit your loved ones in nursing homes and hospitals, leaving...
