An August Farm Flower CSA would make a great Valentines Day gift for your sweetie.
We'll give you a gift certificate to give to your valentine and they will enjoy your beautiful gift all summer long. They will receive twelve weeks of gorgeous, locally grown flowers arranged into beautiful bouquets, from mid June to mid September.
This winter we have been keeping busy with projects around the farm. We spent a day a few weeks ago trimming sheep hooves. This chore always lends to serious quality time with the sheep. They'll be getting shorn in couple weeks to prepare for lambing season in March. We've expanded our flock this year. And nothing is more exciting than the thought of over twenty baby lambs bouncing around the pasture this Spring.
We've been enjoying this slow, foggy, grey winter to rest and rejuvenate and spend time with close friends. Now that we're past the halfway point between Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox the days are getting longer and we can't ignore the signs of spring's approach. We can now start to implement what we've been dreaming about for the coming season. This year we're excited to announce that we're adding pastured raised eggs!! It will be only a matter of time before the brooder will be chirping with baby chicks.
We have installed new hoop tunnels in the field to extend our flower season. So far we have one tunnel planted with ranunculus and anemones. The other tunnel will be planted with icelandic poppies, stock and campanula. The flower seeds have started arriving in the mail. In the coming weeks we will be prepping the propagation house to start cranking out seedlings for the field. We're applying to the Olympia Farmers Market. We expect to be there in May with fresh cut flowers, pastured chicken, and eggs to follow later in the summer.
