It is that time of year, which started Memorial Day weekend, that everyone starts planting all their summer flowers and food. In Michigan, you can’t drive by any farms or open fields without seeing those tractors running and crops being planted. Just waiting on that sweet corn and tomatoes to grow is a killer – nothing tastes better than fresh vegetables!

If you have any customers that are in the farming, agriculture, planting, fertilizer, sod business, or hardware stores, this is a great time for them to advertise what they carry to get folks into their stores. It is not too late…depending on where you live, folks continue planting different types of flowers/fruits/veggies throughout the summer.

Here is a quick peek at just a few of the programs in the “agriculture world.” You will find complete program details in the Co>Op Connect database.
