This is my sixteenth year as a sharer (OMG!) and my fourth as a work-for-share in the flower garden. You may not see me often, since I tend to work early in the morning before the farm opens or in the evening when the weather is cooler. The garden is looking SPECTACULAR this year! The weather for this season has been “interesting”, but the flowers seem to love it. The flower garden will be open for picking this week, July 9th and I wanted to give you a rundown on what to expect:

● Bring scissors and a container for water.

● Make sure to check the sign at the entrance of the garden for the number of stems you
can cut.

● Cut down to the area where the flower branches off from the main stem. (See picture

Flower options will change as the season progresses. Look out for newly-flowering varieties each week. Don’t forget that some types of flower seed pods make for an even more stunning flower arrangement. What we all think of as weeds can add some serious flare to a bouquet!

How do you know what flowers you’re picking? Well, we are in the process of making some new signage to identify each of the flower types. The signs are being made by my beautiful niece and I expect to have them installed within the next week or so. Be on the lookout for them and reach out with any questions at

Enjoy the growing season,
