When family and friends visit, they often remark when seeing the flower beds, “I thought it would be bigger!”
My response is always the same, you can get a ton of flowers from a small space.
The last week of June, I took a moment to count how many stems went off the farm, a quick tally and some rough math showed 500 plus+ in one week!
Celadon Hill is a little over 2 acres with about 1/4 acre in production. That means packing the plants in tight and using every inch of prepared bed space.
It also means not hanging onto flowers that are done producing or don’t like the heat. To keep the flowers blooming, we remove old, tired plants and replace with fresh new transplants.
It’s been a hot, busy month! Our mixed bouquets are available at Rousedale Farm, for pre order online and at their on farm market. Look for us at Overlea Farmer’s Market on biweekly Saturdays and at Independent Brewery open air market on Tuesdays from 4pm-7pm.
I love this time or year, hot or not, every day brings a new flower, fruit or vegetable at its best! ENJOY the season and STAY COOL (like Archie) 🐶😊
