Bruce and Hannah have ordered alot of seeds. Christy is finishing the orders for perennials, plugs and trees. This weekend they will pick up at least one pallet of soil and pots and flats for sowing all these seeds. The greenhouse supplies are being arranged so that when the first seedlings are big enough to set out in 6packs. Also to be ordered are sweet potato slips, strawberries, potato sets, asperigus, onion sets and many other delightful things for your garden. This year, raise more of your own produce to save alot of money and eat healthier and enjoy natures bounty.
Bruce & Hannah, our daughter, are planting flats full of vegetable and flower seeds to prepare for our opening on March 27, 2015. None of us can wait to see the GREEN! I’m sure you all have missed the green leaves and plants and trees over the winter. So, here are pictures of the new “green” we have growing starter plants at our Barn. We will be lighting up the furnace in the greenhouse soon. The trees, fruit trees, grapes, strawberries, onions, potatoes, perennials, and lots of other things are ordered. We have pots and soil and flats ready to fill the greenhouse. Can’t resist showing you some of last year’s photos of our flowers. Anticipation
May God bless your Christmas celebration. Bruce & I pray that each Christmas tree and wreath that traveled home with you brought the peace of Christ with it into your home.
