Long time, no see. Well, the leaves have completely fallen here. This means that with the exception of the plants in the hoophouse, the hardy annuals are completely covered beneath a nice layer. While some folks like to rake and rake, I don’t, so I just let them be. That’s the great thing about nature: it’s nature. I think sometimes we get a little too caught up in trying to control things. Unlike windstorms and flooding, this is something that the good ole’ mum does that’s helpful and awesome. Plus, she has a lot more experience at building great soil than I do.
I thought I would quickly share some photos of how things are progressing below, I hope you enjoy! I’ve began brainstorming ideas for both posts and videos in the future, and have managed to come up with quite a few that I think would be interesting. I’m going to continue logging and making notes about everything I grow here, as well as many new things. The aim for next season is at least two posts/uploads a week, with a few more happening on occasion. I guess the big question I have is, what do you want to see? Please let me know in the comments – even if it’s something new to me, I’m always happy to share my experience (even if I fail, lol).

Reblogged this on The Allotment Wife.
A video of a bouquet taking shape could be interesting to see!
Definitely on the list! 🙂
More of the same! I love reading about someone growing in the same zone as me! I am more likely to read a post than watch a video though. I hope to use some of your knowledge soon–trying to buy a place with almost 4 acres!
I’ll definitely be doing both. I’ve always been more of a visual person, so I figured why not! I want to do some more design specific things, though I admit, I’ve still got a lot to learn technically! Jealous of your 4 acres! I’m going to take the leap one of these days!
Anyway you can join us in Ownesboro for our little flower growers pow wow? Would love to meet you!!!! Sue Ellen of Petal Pushers Flower Farm It’s this coming Friday.

Hi!!! I tried to send a message over instagram, but I’m not sure it went. Unfortunately I was already on the schedule to work and couldn’t get the day off! Definitely bummed about it, I’m sure you all have a lot of valuable knowledge. I’m still learning (and making tons of mistakes, lol) every day! I need to learn as much as I can! 🙂
Sue Ellen–I am a florist in Evansville but am very interested in one day growing a lot of my own flowers. I would be interested in your group too! -Whitney
You’re probably much closer than me! 🙂
I love the photo of your kale! Could I have your permission to paint it? At least give it a try. I will be sure to mention you and your blog in my post. 😊🎨
Thanks! Absolutely! Please feel free to paint anything you see here 🙂 🙂
Thank you! 😃
