Fall is in the air and frost is creeping ever closer as our 2023 season winds down. It’s hard to believe we’re already here—putting the fields and greenhouses to bed, cleaning tools and equipment and closing up shop for the winter.
First and foremost, a tremendous thank you to everyone who supported the farm this season. It was a good year, but certainly not without its challenges. Thank you for bearing with us as we weathered tremendous rain, wind storms, and all the other unexpected events that come with the territory when farming. Like many farms this summer, we did suffer some crop loss, but we were fortunate to still have lots of beautiful produce to share with the community.
The stand may be closed, but the farm crew has been in a flurry of activity these past couple of weeks, working on some projects for next spring. Garlic has been planted, as well as tulips, daffodils, and a greenhouse full of cool-loving flowers to overwinter.
Things to look forward to…
We are terribly excited to be offering Flower Shares next season. We planted over 2,500 flower seedlings and bulbs in our large greenhouse to overwinter for an early flower crop. We plan to have flowers the first week in May! Each week subscribers will receive a large, wrapped bundle of fresh flowers to bring home, arrange, and spread throughout your house.
Choose from weekly bouquets in spring, summer or fall and enjoy multiple weeks of Rosaly’s Flowers. Just like our vegetables, all flowers are grown using only organic practices in our beautiful fields and greenhouses. Shares are limited, so don’t hesitate to reach out if interested. With the holidays right around the corner, this is a great gift idea for any flower lover you might know.
While we wait for snow to fly and spring to come once again, we’ll be making crop plans for next year, ordering seeds, and getting ready for another season of growing. Be on the lookout for a newsletter in a couple months— we’ll be doing our bedding plant pre-orders for the 2024 season and will let you know when they’re open…along with any other exciting updates. It’s never too early to start dreaming of next years garden!
