Flower CSA Starts Next Week

FLOWER CSA

Weekly Deliveries begin this Tuesday! Pick-Up locations in Olympia, Portland and Rochester.

Every year we fantasize and brainstorm about how we can revise our systems. Sometimes that information comes to us like divine intervention out in field, typically, after tripping over the same thing one too many times and a series of cuss words have been shared. During this rare moment of reflection a better way is born. With the flowers, still so new to us, this whole process feels so very thrilling. Agriculture and art collide. Conducting variety trials out in the field allows us to assess growth habits, vigor, possible pests and diseases and harvest methods. Once they are cut a whole new set of observations take place; vase life, workability and of course beauty.
 
We have been introducing soo many new varieties this year feels like a major expansion of my social circle. Early this spring all these new personalities began showing up in the greenhouse. They all have their own ways of interacting with the world and it is our job to figure out how to best support them in being the strongest most vibrant version of themselves. As they begin to mature I get to see how they get along with others and what I can do to illuminate and honor the plants essence in an arrangement. To be honest it feels a little bit like falling in love. Everyday Liza and I are having conversations about the intoxicating scent of one or the first emergence of another like giddy teenagers. Who knew that flowers could be so completely spellbinding? I for one know my life will never be the same. This Tuesday is the beginning of our flower CSA. It's not to late to get to experience a weekly bouquet of the most stunning plants our farm has to offer.

Flower CSA shares lasts for 12 weeks and costs $144. You can place an order on ourwebsite.
