I’m grateful for many things this season. The overwhelming response to our Paperwhite sale was a lovely surprise and thrilling to know people like to see things grow. We sold out early!
Christmas came early this year with a grant acceptance by American Farmland Trust. They are funding my first ever high tunnel which will allow me to extend my season and grow more beautiful things!
I successfully pre-sprouted 200 ranunculus and with the help of a good friend, got them in the ground BEFORE Christmas!
My first ever Pussy Willow catkins appeared! Sticks were purchased last March at the Home & Garden show (prior to shut down) plunged in a bucket of water for a week and planted on the hill. They were slow to take off, but now each bush has multiple stems with lovely furry pods.
I’m forever grateful to my smart, hard-working, festive husband for supporting my crazy dream of a flower farm. Even though he has a very busy full time job, COVID-19 kept him working from home all year long, monitoring the farm from his office. He’s a super problem solver, chief irrigation engineer and quickly learning all the flower names!
2020 was quite a year. In more ways than one it brought me out of my comfort zone and brought more people outside, appreciating the gift of nature.
Thank you for following! Watch for our first subscription notice to roll out in February. Look for Celadon Hill at Rousedale Farm Market and Overlea Farmer’s Market in the spring. And maybe a plant sale in May!
Stay safe and warm and all the best to you in 2021!
