Hello, everyone! Happy spring! The transformation of seasons from winter to spring has been remarkable around here and I am grateful to be keenly aware of it. I missed spring last year, due to the mental fog associated with grief. Happy to be more tuned in now and Mother nature has definitely smiled on the farm this month. You see the crimson clover in the photo? It was planted, oh, maybe 4 autumns ago. It has never looked so good! In my mind, it's not a coincidence but a gift from heaven.

It's peony time! Plus Sweet William and various wildflowers dotting the meadow. Something new for 2017: I'm hoping to host several quickie "pop-up" events on the farm since I will not be doing farmers markets. The first is this Friday, April 28, 4 o'clock to 6 pm. Apologies for the short notice but the reality now more than ever is that no 2 days are ever alike and the nature of "pop-up" events is impromptu. Short and sweet. So if you're out and about this Friday and have time, come on by anytime between 4 and 6 pm and check out the farm, linger awhile, or make your own bouquet (bring clippers, please). Starter lavender plants are available for sale along with lavender goats milk soap and lovely mixed floral bunches for $10.

Hello, July! It finally rained! Although we're still way behind on rainfall amounts compared to last year this time.  Saturday was a beautiful day for a wedding on the farm! That's when the much-needed rain happened and it never stopped the bride from looking absolutely gorgeous! It was a memorable day and truly an honor to host both the farm-themed wedding and reception. Congratulations and best wishes to the new Mr. and Mrs. Adam Pilcher! If you know anyone who might be looking for a wedding venue, we have availability in May 2016 so please let them know! Thank you!

Wishing you a safe and happy Fourth of July holiday!
