Farm Update
Hello friends,
This month I'm dedicating a significant amount of time to seed starting. There are lots of little baby flowers just starting to appear out of their seeds. The greenhouse still isn't completely finished but the goal is to get that done this week! I'm already running out of space on my seed starting bookshelf and seed trays are overflowing to other portions of the house.  In less than three months blooms will be popping up from the ground. Keep your eyes open on Facebook and Instagram for updates on tulips, daffodils, ranunculus and poppies. They will be the first blooms available this year!
Baby ranunculus are sprouting roots in my laundry room and will soon be spring flowers.
TODAY is the last day to get your Valentine a Subscription with a complementary card!
Include your Valentine's address in the comment form and they will recieve a beautiful card via snail mail for Valentine's Day. The card explains the subscription and can include a custom note. Just include that in the comment form as well.

Pre-Paying for a bouquet subscription helps me plan and prepare for the upcoming season. It is a CSA - “Community Shared Agriculture” where you buy your flowers directly from the farmer as opposed to a retailer. This method benefits you in freshness as well as supports this small flower farm. 
Subscriptions will continue to be available until all slots are filled or through April 2nd.
I'm offering 3 full-season options. Choose from a monthly, bi-weekly, or weekly subscription.
Subcriptions begin in June and continue through October. Flowers will be available for delivery from Independence to Pittsburg and available for pick-up in Parsons, Oswego and Pittsburg.  For my flower friends in Lawrence and Topeka I am only providing the monthly subscription.

Tip of the month!
Start those seeds! Cool season seeds that is. Slow growing cold loving flower and vegetable seeds can be started in February and March. A good rule of thumb is to start cool season flower seeds indoors 16-12 weeks before your last frost date and they can be transplanted outside 6-8 weeks before your last frost date with little to no protection. This includes flowers like sweet peas, snapdragons, sweet william, canterbury bells, larkspur, love-in-a-mist, and bells of Ireland. Many of these flowers can with stand temperatures several degrees below freezing.  Sweet peas won't be damaged until 26 degrees Fahrenheit.  If you fear a cold night or a stretch of cold whether you can cover plants with a frost cloth row cover or even a bed sheet for a short period of time to prevent damage.
Warm weather lovers like zinnias and sunflowers don't need to be started until around 4 weeks before the last frost date or direct sowed after the danger of frost has past.

Where will you find flowers in 2018?

Flowers and Coffee... Two of the best things. This year I will have bouquets for sale at Remnant Cafe in Parsons and Root Coffeehouse in Pittsburg.  Instead of spending the day at the shop I will leave bouquets there and you can pay for them at the cash register. These shops will also be pick-up locations for bouquet subscriptions. I still hope to hang around and chat for a bit when I drop off the bouquets. Depending on the flowers there maybe one or two pop-up sales before the baby comes. Stay tuned for more info.
I had a little fun playing with wedding flower leftovers for my kitchen table!
