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
Looking forward to spring!
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.
Stone Ridge Farm will be closed for the months of January and February and part of March. We will be finishing some projects at the barn, and at home; beginning calving in February; starting seeds and plants; ordering new trees, plants and seeds for spring of 2015. Opening day is planned for March 27, 2015. We plan to have seed potatoes, asperigus, bulk seeds, potting soil, tools, and, of course, lots of beautiful and useful things made by the creative people in Southeast NE, Northern KS. As things become available, we will have lots of healthy plants, trees, shrubs for you in our greenhouse. Enjoy your time with family and store up your treasured memories as you head into a New Year full of challenge and promise.
