Delight! The one word that comes to mind each day I visit the flower beds and see all the hard work, vigilance and time come to fruition.
The flowers are GROWING!
It was about the second week of June that the party started popping.
They say gardeners are optimists. They plant a seed and hope.
It’s time to plant seeds for September and October flowers. Here in zone 7, our first frost is around October 20th. We’ve started Strawflowers, Amaranth and more Sunflowers! They take about 60-90 days to bloom. Counting back from the first frost date, it will be enough time for harvest.
And from last month’s post, we are thrilled to be sharing our flowers in market bouquets at Rousedale Farm Market on weekends. The market is open 10am-6pm and has berries, vegetables, honey, chicken and pork all fresh and locally farmed!
Thank you for following the farm, stay cool and I hope you get the opportunity to delight in all the colors, sounds and smells of the summer!
