Flower farm update

Hi, its been awhile. I thought I would do a quick flower farm update. It has been a learning curve for sure. I think I have flowers on my mind 24/7. I hope you enjoy all the pictures. Here are some lovely iris’. I have a whole new appreciation for this old-fashioned flower!! They have such an amazing scent!!

 This little raised bed is where I have planted my sweet peas. I didn’t realize that they  had such an attitude. I am thinking that they are a little behind then most so I am not sure if I am going to get any flowers from them or not. Lesson for next year. Do not start inside as early, they got a little leggy and plant them out a little earlier in the season…….and give them a little cover.This is just a random shot of my side garden. I am loving the spreading Sedum.  Here is a peek of the snapdragon and the strawberries. Both are growing slowly. I think I will get a few berries this year. Like with the sweet peas….some lessons learned with the snaps, therefor I will take notes and hopefully learn from my mistakes.  My peony bush in bloom and they smelled so heavenly. I am hoping to plant a bunch more of these wonderful shrubs this fall. I will have to wait a few years to get many blooms but it will be worth it. This is a snap of a snap. My first blooming one!!! So exciting even if it is slightly bent. Bloom number 2….also bent out of shape:)The dusty miller is doing pretty good. I think I need to start these a little earlier next year.

Wrap up

I have had a little tiny experience with hail and crops…..we had a hail storm come through and it shredded leaves on my tiny wonders…it was so disappointing. My hydrangea shrubs and dogwoods suffered leaf damage also.  I am holding my breath that I have quite a few blooms in a few weeks. I have my first delivery to Mama’s Happy in Independence Mn.

      1. Oh and my husband told me to let him know when you get your stand running so he can stop there to buy me some flowers! <3
