This week was bittersweet, as I stood in the field early in the morning, with the sun just starting to peak up and the morning dew on the fields and flowers. I teared up, feeling the cold air and wet petals, knowing winter was on it's way. Our first season, wrapped up, in the blink of an eye. 

In the sweltering heat of late July, I prayed for this day to come and cool me off. But today, I felt a pang of longing, to skip winter and move ri...

Tuesday evening we hosted our first ever flower workshop, Blooms & Booze. 21 women attended to learn how to make Summer Flower Bouquets from local flowers. 

While it poured outside, we were cozy inside Seabreeze, where laughter filled the air, and bright colored flowers, wine and beer, covered the tables.  

Kathy York, neighbor flower grower and friend joined us too, and together we taught the class tips and tricks to arranging summer bouquets....

Who doesn't love good ol Southern Maryland sweet corn? We know it's really summer when we shuck the corn and turn on the grill.  It is super difficult to grow organically, hence why it's hit or miss when we have it for you. But it's worth every try. This year we tried two varieties, grown organically on the farm. One did excellent, and the other crop was entirely consumed by our critter friends, so we will have to trial it again next year (with a better fe...

Our spring and summer flowers, herbs, and vegetable transplants are looking healthy. We start them in January in the heated greenhouse and they live out the first three-four months of their lives there before being planted in the farm fields. We started with over 1,000 seeds, and now have strong plants, just one-two months out from blooming and producing food! 

Because no matter how you look at life, it's all about strong roots. :)

Flowers are something we tried out last year for the first time. The decision to grow them on a larger scale came about in early 2017, as we had more permanent growing space available and felt ready to attend our first farmers market at Sotterley, where they were looking for a cut flower vendor. The pieces came together and in February we made some big purchases and began sowing ity bity seeds in the greenhouse. And in those chilly spring temps, we will mov...

  • create zero agricultural runoff 

  • are fresh!

  • utilize the sun and greenhouse in the spring/summer/fall months and energy efficient LED lights in the winter to grow

  • are grown in soil that is organic, and made from all waste products from other industries (such as coconut husks...

Bagels! Pizza! Sushi! Enough said. I’m always looking for ways to make these traditionally unhealthy items more whole, hearty, and local. We like to make simple, homemade sushi using fresh asparagus, cucumbers, and herbs in season in the spring months, and add cucumbers and scallions during summer. 

In the dead of winter, I like to take local winter wheat (the picture on left is from Next Step Farm in Charles County) and make homemade toa...
