2020 Farm Plans

I have big plans for this little flower farm. The 2020 season actually started last October. As the last season ended, I began working on this season. We brought in 13 truck loads of rich compost and added new landscape fabric. I made three trips to a farm about two hours from Evansville who was closing and dug, transported, and then planted 90 peonies, 25 shrubs, and 120 perennials to use for cut flowers.

Ninebark is an excellent foliage plant. This variety has beautiful burgundy leaves.

I started planting seeds at the beginning of March. I’ve passed 3800 with more to go. I also have three different types of shrubs and dahlia tubers on the way.

Raised beds have been added for some of the perennials that need to be contained and we will start on the fence and arbor soon.

Of course I am sad that my spring and early summer weddings have been postponed but it is also letting me focus my time and energy on the farm.

I have a rhythm. Most mornings I head to the greenhouses to water the seedlings. Most evenings I fill trays with soil and plant seeds. Each seed is touched by my hands.

I have quadrupled the number of plants I am growing this year. Maybe more. (I didn’t count last year.) But, I’m adding ways of how I’m getting the plants to you also.

A bouquet subscription will begin in June and continue through the month of September. Pick up will be available at Farm 57 with delivery to some areas. I will have this offered through my website soon.

Flowers will also be available through Market Wagon. If you are unfamiliar with Market Wagon, it is a delivery service offering locally grown produce and other local goods.

Flowers will also be available in the Farm 57 market. I will have pre-made arrangements again and also plan to add a flower bar this year.

I hope to have more classes also and special events on Wednesday evenings during Food Truck Night.
