Deadheading the young cosmos makes for a better harvest later (cutting back encourages more vigorous branching and growth), so I went down the row snipping away. Off with their heads!
When Mark and I first met, we knew the relationship could only be as good as the gratitude we shared with each other. For an early gift, I had “Thank you” stamped on brass tags for our key rings, a constant reminder to be grateful and to say so whenever possible.
Now I carry that prayer close to my heart. My hope is that when you string on the Gratitude necklace, you’re also reminded of everything you have to be thankful for, even and especially when things are difficult.
These 1” brass tags are friendly talismans, the perfect weight, lovely to thumb and turn over in your hand. All elements (except for the delicate chain itself) are hand-formed and soldered.
A custom order for 38 stems to celebrate 38 years. Amazing!
This high tunnel was filled with ranunculus and anemones not a couple weeks ago. As the flowers died down, the weeds shot up, so step one was to mow it all down. Then these guys pulled the fabric and the drip tape we’d laid down in the fall, rototilled with a walk-behind BCS, and laid the drip tape and fabric back down. Next step: replant.
The harvest on lisianthus is going to be insane.
These are so sweet! And the stems are so easy to strip! Things I never realized I could value before flower farming…
