May opened with a delicate mix of color and texture with Amsonia, Geum, Ranunculus, Clover, Solomon Seal, Cerinthe and Dianthus!
La Belle and Amandine Ranunculus stole the show in so many ways. Two week vase life, fancy petals and lovely colors!
In the midst of all the blooming, 1000’s of plants are going in the ground, like this bed of sunflowers.
We continue to practice healthy soil building by seeding a Crimson Clover cover crop in the fall. It’s beneficial to the soil by being a nitrogen fixer and keeping the soil protected from winter winds, and the bees LOVE it!
As we begin the season with a flourish, find our Mixed Bouquets for pre-order and pick up at Rousedale Farm Market this year. Order and pay online during the week and pick up on Saturday or Sunday at the market. Make sure to pick up locally grown fresh produce, eggs and honey too!
Look for our subscription options! A June biweekly mini subscription and a monthly option too! And if you need flowers for your DIY event, consider a Bucket of Blooms! Fresh from the field flowers and foliage to be arranged by you into several small or one large presentation. One week notice required please, free local delivery.
Got tomato plants? We do! Find them for sale in the Celadon Hill shop, free local delivery with orders of $25. Everything grown from seed, chemical free, heirloom varieties not typically found in the grocery store! These plants are ready to go in the ground.
May also included this amazing collaboration with Beaumont Pottery for Mother’s Day. I was thrilled to have Beaumont create these beautiful artisan vases, each one unique. If you have never visited their shop in Phoenix, MD, make plans to go!
Hang in there folks and enjoy the beauty of the season! Yep, they’re here! Look under old trees, you’ll be sure to find a few cicadas, hanging out! To read more about these amazing creatures, University of Maryland Department of Agriculture has some facts about the 2021 Locusts!
