Winter Flower Subscriptions now available!


Okay everybody, so it's time to sign up for our 2015 Winter Flower Subscription.  Here are the details, it's going to be amazing.  [see happy winter flower subscriber in last picture]  

THIS MAKES A FABULOUS GIFT---HOW ELSE CAN YOU WARM SOMEONE'S HEART  IN THE DEAD OF WINTER FOR 7 WEEKS STRAIGHT?!!!  
Also new this year, sign up a new member/friend and get 10% off your share!  We need you to help us recruit new members.  
2 Sessions available, each session runs 7 weeks for $100.  You could get both sessions for $200. 
Over the course of the 14 weeks, the following flowers will bloom for you---icelandic poppies, ranunculus, lilies, hyacinth, dahlias, anemones, tulips (!!!) 
There will be three options for your pick-up.  
1ST DELIVERY OPTION:  We will have a mid-week Wednesday Durham drop off located close to east campus/downtown TBA.  If anyone is interested in letting us use your house/porch for drop off, please let us know!  Flowers will be available for pick-up hopefully most of the day to work with everyone's schedule.   
   
  2ND DELIVERY OPTION: Mid-week Wednesday Chapel Hill drop off location TBA.  Will probably be at the old Foster's/new Root Cellar on MLK Jr. BLVD.  

3RD DELIVERY OPTION: Saturday pick up at the winter Durham Farmers' Market, from 10-12/noon.  

The first session will run from December 27th through the the 7th of February for Saturday members and for Wednesday members from the 31st of December through the 11th of February.  

The second session will run from February 14th through March 28th for Saturday members and for Wednesday members from February 18th through April 1st.  

 DISCLAIMERS:  So, these are winter flowers and they are very finicky.  I reserve the right to cancel a week due to inclement weather and/or lack of enough blooms.  Hopefully we will encounter neither of these problems, but it could happen.  If we miss a week it will be rescheduled so you will receive your full 7 weeks no matter what happens.
If you need to miss a week we allow for one week's rescheduling.  If you are going to miss more than 1 week, please give your flowers to a friend or loved one.

Currents

Yes, the poppy is cool, but what we all need to be really talking about is the flowering kale!!!!!
I AM SMITTEN!!!!!  Completely enamored with this gorgeous brassica.  Great vase life, beastly strong, it glows, just beautiful.  There is this one Japanese one we grew, can't remember the name, but it is a mottled white and it takes me to another world, just like Murakami, when I'm with it.  Can't beat that from a flower.  Not sure how long this love affair will last, but flowering kale, I am on your side.

First new greenhouse bunch!

 Oh my goodness.  This red is on fire I tell you.  The kind of red that turns heads and makes your heart skip a beat.  Yes.  We all need a little of that sometimes, right?

Welcome Fall.

 I know it's been awhile.  Still here, still breathing, still farming.  It's just been a busy season to say the least.  We went into this year thinking, if we can just get by with the two girls at this age, we'll be golden.  And in a way it has just been a survival year....and there were loads of times when I cursed the universe for throwing me into this farming profession....
 ....but it has been an amazing season, mainly due to the wonderful weather we've had.  I hope now that we're coming close to winter when things slow down a bit I'll be able to visit here a little more.  The greenhouse needs a blog of it's own, and I still have to introduce everyone to our fine crew this year.  They are the ones who make all this possible.
