Mother's Day

Posted 5/2/2010 6:40pm by Gayle Ganser.

It's hard to believe its already Mother's Day week. When we start to plant in the greenhouses in February everything is geared for Mother's Day. Hanging baskets are going to be beautiful. I will be bringing them to the store this week. We have fuschias, petunias, calibrochoas, begonias, impatiens and so many more. We have great gifts for mom. Herb baskets and gift certificates. Let's pray the weather holds out.

The farm is coming along. Sometimes we get so wrapped up in the greenhouses that we tend to forget about the farm. Right now we are picking wonderful asparagus everyday and rhubarb several times a week. THis past week we spent to nights covering the new strawberries which are in full bloom since we had frost warnings, Tuesday and Wendesday. No damage and they look beautiful, as long as the deer don't discover them. The PA sweet onions are looking good as well as the spinach and lettuces.

Steve just plowed for my cut flower bed. Our cut flower selection during the summer is unsurpassed. Its a must to stop in and take a bouquet home for yourself or your sweetheart!!! We usually start cutting sometime in June and then continue till frost.

Happy Mother's Day to all our mothers. Hope to see all of you soon at the store.
