Fall Hardy Annual Seedling Update

It's been a few weeks since I posted about finally starting the process of sowing the seeds of my hardy annual flowers. In this, germination is in full swing for a lot of the fall hardy annual flower seedlings. Let's take a closer look -  After I ran out of cell trays, I started using…

Light Apricot Chantilly Snapdragons and Feverfew: The Perfect Match

I've been playing with arranging these gorgeous light apricot chantilly snapdragons all this week. The bright, peachy stems are so lovely alone - but work exceptionally well with nearly every other flower that I'm able to combine them with in a vase. However, one of my absolute favorite combinations involves the single feverfew. Let's take…

My Favorite Arrangement of the Season, Thus Far…

Arranging flowers is not something that I really consider myself to be good at. Sure, some vases end up looking better than others, but the things that I make are a far cry from the ones that "real" flower farmers make. Even still, there are certain times when it feels like the stars align and…

Rose Madame Butterfly Snapdragons: Cut Flower Arrangement

There are several pros and cons to growing seeds from a mix packet. By doing so, I can quickly find my favorite flowers, even when I'm growing in a small space. It's also really friendly for my garden budget. However, it's always a bummer when I don't have ENOUGH of a certain color flower that…

March 2020 – Hoophouse Flower Update

If I'm being completely honest, February was rough. If you've been following along, you already know that we had a major issue with white mold in the hoophouse. As a result, I ended up losing all of my stocks AND the entire row of sweet peas. Now that I feel like things are back under…

End of January Polytunnel Update

I swear, January always feels like the longest month ever. There's nothing really actively growing, and it's usually too cold to go outside and have fun. So I end up stuck inside under my blankets waiting for the sun to come back out. Luckily, the month is almost over and it's time to take a…

November Hoop House Update – Hardy Annual Cut Flowers

To say that the weather over this past month has been wacky would be an understatement. It was less than three weeks ago that I was complaining about temperatures in the 90s - and now, it's snowing and in the teens! With such a wide fluctuation in temperature, I've  not done a very good job…
