I have an amazing friend whose name is Kristine. All I have to do is mention something, anything really, in passing or in earnest and poof! Like a genie granting wishes, she will make it happen. Ans so it was with my comment about hops. As a flower farmer, I am interes...

So all of my lilies bloomed at once this week forcing me into action. I could either sit back and let them come and go, or I could cut them and try to make bouquets to sell. I had tried to sell them to my small list of florists but had no takers. I also tried selling t...

What an unusual week! We have had days and days of rain. Great for the plants, although, even better for the weeds. My greenhouse is emptied and just about everything is in the ground which has left me somewhat worry free and idle. After weeks of go, go, go, I confess...

This is a David Austin Rose. Isn’t this sheer perfection? Sure, the drawback is that this does not grow on a 2 foot long, sturdy stem, ready for my cut flower inventory, but it has a fragrance that is divine and is right outside my front door. While we are not quite to...

One of the major dates that I have been planning everything around has been the date of the last frost. That’s the date you count backwards from to start seeds. That’s the date that all of your fragile flowers can allegedly go in the ground. Coincidentally, this year i...

I’ve noticed something that has happened to me since the move into the house. I’ve become very invested in the weather.  Of all the possible changes I thought I might develop as a farmer, weather watching was not even on my radar. I anticipated deer, bugs, sore muscles...

 Well, I can see that among other things that have fallen behind, one is my blogging. This goes back to that issue I have with simply recounting my days rather than delving into one topic or another and just letting my fingers fly across the keyboard. In truth, the onl...
