Is Spring here?
Wow it's January and it feels like spring. Everything is growing and we've been able to bring alot of vegetables to the market. This past two weeks the Ranuculus have exploded and we are picking tons of blooms and having so much fun making colorful bouquets. All the seed catologs have been coming in and as if I don't have enough, I picked up a few more at the SAWG conference this past weekend. I enjoyed the conference so much and was pleasantly surprised to see so many young farmers at the meetings. This next week brings another week of seeding, transplanting seedlings and putting out young plants into the gardens. Rain is in our forecast again making a much different season than last year when we never got much of any rain except a few tenths here and there.
2012 is a new year and I hope to make it a good one. I have two wonderful new employees who started with me towards the end of 2011 and so happy to have them and they are both very excited about all the new flowers and vegetables. With their help, we should be able to offer more and more consistant supply of both flowers and vegetables.
We have been booking weddings for the 2012 year and very excited about that also. If you are thinking about using local flowers, let us provide flowers for your wonderful day. I post alot of pictures on my facebook page, Cuts of Colors. Check those out and give me a call and we can set up a visit for your special day.
Here's to a happy new year and happy growing,
