Setting out to start the farm, I never imagined an article  such as the one written by All Ag Media this winter, Wentworth Blossoming with Floral Arrangements written for American Farm Publications. But, I'm glad it's happened. Flower workshops were not something we thought would be important to our small business, but we took a chance, and it's been one of the best ways to meet new customers and provide education about our business (and farming in general)...

Though it's not technically winter yet, the frost has hit here in Southern Maryland, and therefore, we switch over to winter crops. The summer flowers and veggies are killed off by the November (sometimes October) hard frost, leaving the fields looking brown and dreary. 

BUT- we have exciting news... We built a high tunnel (pictured below) and over the last week we have been planting thousands of winter and early spring flowers in it.

It feels nice with this...

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. :) 

Above are photos of o...

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...
