Happy New Year! If you're new to this mailing list, welcome! In this email you'll find updates about my family, farm, and what flowers are in bloom and where you can find them. I also try to include a gardening tip each month.
2018 is sure to be an exciting year for us here on the farm! I'm just about done with the year's plans. At the end of December and beginning of January, I take a good week to evaluate the previous year and to plan the upcoming one. I create a list of all the seeds I want to order, a succession planting plan, a big list of goals and a projected profit and loss sheet. Seed starting will soon begin and flowers corms, bulbs, tubers and plugs are soon to arrive in the mail. I'm planning to get a small greenhouse put up over the next week or two for seed starting and growing specialty flowers like ranunculus and Icelandic poppies. Our guest room and kitchen table is getting a little too small for all my babies. There are so many exciting things that are just about to happen! This maybe my favorite time of year. Ah, the potential!!!
