In the cut flower world, there’s something called the “June gap”. It refers to the end of spring flowers and when summer flowers are not quite available.
This year, with the late frost and cool spring, the gap is a little smaller.
Spring feverfew and nigella came in like rockstars! Followed by snapdragons and larkspur. All these flowers were planted last September, covered and tucked in tight over the winter. The extra time in the ground, allowed for strong root development and hardiness.
And as the summer season is officially upon us, our first sunflowers bloomed on June 11th!
Our work is ramping up, here on the hill. I’m so grateful to have help washing buckets, moving compost, installing stakes, flipping beds, harvesting flowers and much more. I’m especially grateful to my husband, chief engineer for all around farm technology!
