Wreath workshop today with the Odessa-Montour BOCES work study program students! This group came out over the summer to help us with the farm and learn about site and bed prep, and filled our bed. Today we made handcrafted, fresh, evergreen wreaths to take home. So grateful for their help and such a joy to get to know and work with such a genuine and hardworking group!

Pete the wonder dog. Too cold for me today - but he’s in his element. Checking on the ducks, making sure the pond is still filling, keeping the deer away from the tulips and harassing the moles around the hoop house. A hard days work, done by 10am!

Doing a little grocery shopping in the hoop house. I love winter root veggies. This is MY season. Rutabaga, beets, carrots, oh my!

The hoop house is not heated so this year is all about experimentation- seeing what grows well and for how long. The beer greens were frozen today when I harvested, so this might be it for them. Rutabaga tops were still perky and rigid…fingers crossed we’ll get a few more good ones. The carrots will overwinter - so if we don’t lose them to moles/voles… a happy spring it will be!

Although the veggies are almost down a the space will continue to be productive. We’ve got a cover crop in to hold and enrich the soil. And Very soon, the ducks will move in for the winter, fertilizing the hoop house for us and saving days worth of work come spring.

11/11/2022

Story time…

If you go to our story today (or our around the farm story archive) you’ll hear a little bit about invasive species. This is a topic NEAR AND DEAR to me, as I worked on invasive species for the state of Michigan for 4 years…past lives…

are an insurmountable problem, for the homeowner, for the farmer, for the government. Hundreds of millions of dollars fund management, removal and eradication efforts. Why??

Invasive species outcompete native species and reduce biodiversity which has been shown to have a direct link to climate resiliency.
Invasive species alter soil chemistry which directly impacts growth of native plants.
Invasive species can be an ecological trap for native wildlife - offering a low nutrition alternative to native plants, resulting in increased levels of disease and decreases in populations.
Not to mention major damage to human infrastructure - some invasive can grow right through concrete foundations and roads… that’s money out of your pocket!

All this to say is there is a better way. We can each as individuals steward our own lands by removing invasive species (please do your research and follow proper removal, treatment and disposal guidelines) and replacing with native species. Check out our local regional invasive species network for more info on what you can do.

This year, we did three major things on the farm:
1. where we dug our pond, we also removed 1/4-acre of invasive honeysuckle - a beautiful flowering shrub that is often used in bouquets and arrangements - but also a horribly prolific invasive plant that was choking out our equally beautiful native dogwoods. You’ll see us using dogwood foliage a lot.
2. We replanted the area, as well as several other patches on the property. With native wildflower seed to attract pollinators as well as hold down the soil for erosion control.
3. We interspersed in our flower field like this yarrow.

Now that we’re officially we’ll into November… it’s wreath season!!!! Workshop registration is live! If you aren’t already…make sure to subscribe to our mailing list. There might be a little extra something special in this week’s email…..

There are three ways to wreath with us this year: you can grab a pre-made beauty, order a kit to wreath at home or come see us at a workshop around town… whichever you choose, we’re so grateful! Check the link in bio to order or register!

This isn’t everything…but pretty close!! I have a small handful of packets arriving this week - and if I’m being honest, I’ll probably grab a few other random must have things in the spring - but here it is! The seed lineup for 2023z lots of good stuff in here - annuals, perennials, biennials…. Full season flowers… color coordinated blooms… a big focus on honing in on varieties we love that do well versus growing the kitchen sink this year. So, we’ll see how it goes. How to organize these, store them (in a cool dark place) and write out the field plan.

If you’re in the market - we recommend for selection and germination success, for unique varieties (they have their seed sale going on now) and for varieties acclimated to our zone in western NY (5b).

10/28/2022

Life has been chaotic to say the least these past few months. I haven’t harvested as many flowers as I could have and we fully abandoned the flowers stand this year. All summer long, despite the many undone things, I’ve tried to take a beat and save some flowers for myself to play with. It helps me remember why we jumped feet first into this whole thing, and why flowers are important and valuable.

So far, we’ve learned a tremendous amount about caring for our land and soil and we’ve begun to transform our landscape to something more harmonious, more productive and more diverse. It’s been insane, but also awesome. And this small little thing…picking a few flowers, making something pretty, roasting up a pumpkin for dinner - maybe the last of the year, it brings all those feelings of joy and excitement and accomplishment to the surface.

We appreciate all of you and your support whether you hired us for your event or you sign up for a subscription every year, come to a workshop, or grab a wreath/bouquet - thanks so much! We hope you’re out there learning alongside us and loving this as much as we are!
