Hi! I’m Tonya. I’m the one-woman show behind all things ‘Tonya, with the flowers’ (formerly ‘FRESHCUTKY’.) In 2010, I planted my very first seed. Having grown up in the city, I had never set foot in a garden. That season, I watched as a single pumpkin plant struggled to survive. Little did I know that one amazing little pumpkin would give way into an intense passion for sustainability, growing my own food, and cut flower production. Though I’m not a “professional,” this blog chronicles my journey towards the goal of owning my own farm and fostering my love of all things flowery.
The garden is a 100% donation garden. This means that every flower grown is given to hospitals, nursing homes, hospices, and other organizations. Thanks to the tremendous support from our YouTube community, patrons, and subscribers; I am able to continue these efforts. You are appreciated so, so much.
Spring of 2023 will mark my tenth growing season, and very first year in my new garden, located in growing zone 6b/7a – Nashville, TN.
