Saturday - Mother's Day is One Day Away

Tomorrow is a very busy day for us and hopefully we are on your list of must visit places. Hubby is proudly stating that he is the FTD man for the day and will greet on-farm visitors with a warm smile. Be gentle though because all of the different items, sizes and prices is already stressing him out a little. I do have a list so he seems a little flustered just ask to see it. He does not know the difference between a marigold and a zinnia. I WILL HAVE MY CELL PHONE WITH ME. ;)

While you are here check out the load of rocks in the front yard. It is my Mother's Day gift from Tom and the girls. It is the first installment of my new landscaping project for the front of our house. As Tom put it how do you buy flowers for someone who literally has thousands of them on hand? I love my rocks. This particular load has great color and shape.

While hubby and the girls are greeting people at the farm I will be at the farmers market in Manhattan from 8:00 a.m. to Noon. I will hang around a little later if the crowd holds. I tried to bring a little of everything and hopefully what I brought will NOT come home. I have A LOT of purple flowers in the car... GO WILDCATS.

We had another t-ball practice and today my Livie knocked the snot out of the ball. Go Livie!!!! Autie seeing how pleased I was with my load of rocks busied herself colleting gravel. I tried very hard to be just as excited about the gravel as I was the limestone. I think the other mom's might have thought I was nuts. Sitting next to me was a fellow farm marketer and at least she understood that for some women there will never be a diamond that is big enough to rival a truckload of limestone. If you come tomorrow ask Autie about the nail polish she has all over her leg. It is a nice color BUT....

Please come visit us this weekend. We would love to see you.

Happy St. Patrick's Day

St. Patrick’s Day

Tomorrow will be dedicated to planting a new bed of leeks and onions.  If there is time I will likely add a few more rows of peas.  Today has been spent potting flowers and hanging baskets.  I love flowers and we have a beautiful assortment of beautiful colors waiting for our on farm and farm market customers.  From petunias and osteospurnam to juncos twister, rose moss and a huge assortment of succulents… we will have several unique ideas that will combine flowers with edibles and create a full season of flowering beauty. 

This weekend we are offering our on-farm visitors a special treat.  We are offering special deals on our asparagus crowns and strawberry plants.  Now is the perfect time to plant both for a great start to the season.  Visitors to the farm will be treated to a special thank you… a free Toucan Tango… a lovely delicate flower with beautiful lavender petals and a bright green center.  The toucan tango is so pretty and unique it is worth the trip all by itself.  While you are here you can take a sneak peak at the many hanging basket designs we will offer this spring. 

Happy St. Patrick’s Day and fair warning my girls will pinch you if you forget to wear your green!
